Changed my turn signal lamp today. What a PITA. As if the access hole wasn't small enough, they couldn't put some longer leads on the socket so you could actually pull it through the access hole to change it?

When I change the headlights in the spring I'm gonna cut the harness and add 4 inches of wire. Although this is the first time I had to change the lamp in 7 years.

I was planning on changing both but, the first was such a pain in my balls that I just threw the other lamp in the glove box.

New shorty antenna, new wiper blades, went to install the PCV valve and found out it was the wrong one from Amazon. Also picked up a power inverter with extension cords, and also got some switches for my LED projects. Attached are the before and afters on the AntennaX Shorty Antenna

Only been around the block to try to find butane, but it was able to pick up the local college station loud and clear which was about on par or a little better than stock. I'll be able to comment better in the coming week or so.

Not as good as a regular antenna. I got one after someone swiped my stock antenna and I noticed it right away. I'm in the middle of South Dakota so there is some distance between radio stations and I'm aware of where I was able to get a certain stations in relation to where I am.

Plus, it'll bend with the wind after a while. Mine has a curve at the top now.

I lost a little bit when I put mine on as well. Not enough to make me put the stock one back on.

Mine bends with the wind while I drive, but for some reason, when I'm not driving, it actually bends a bit in the opposite direction, towards the front of the Jeep. Can't figure it out.

Haven't done too much lately but did get some nice 29.7" long Bilstein 5125's for the rear. The bushings sleeves are considerably more narrow than the SL/stock shocks. Solution -2 washer on the bottom bushing, 3 washers on the top, and a good impact to drive them home. They ride super nice!
Bilstein/SL/odd SL sleeve

Looks great man. Can't wait to get my lift on. Praying that the last part comes in before this weekend.
