Didn't do anything to the wk today but went to the auto show in milwaukee. I have to say I was somewhat disappointed with Jeep's display. At past shows I've seen hummers parked in tripod mode or at least interesting displays, they were just tucked in the corner with a couple wk2s and one of everything else. Hate to say it but I think ford by far had the best display.

Oh and I got a free Jeep carabiner clip for entering to win $45k towards a new chrysler.

White LEDs in the HVAC and switch modules.

Radio and shift console left for another day; sorry about the blur, I didn't unearth the gorillapod for a quick shoot.

Edit: ok, ok, better pic.

Writeup to follow in a few days.

Second time, not so bad.

First time, you learn what really matters

Need to be good at soldering; you have to do some tack soldering that takes some feel, right at the edge of the LED, in order to get the heights right.

I could probably do the whole set in two hours knowing what I know now. The boss will determine whether I get to write it up soon or not

I've seen alot of people complain about them (mostly for Customer Service). But I have a set and haven't had any issues. When I bought the Hids I also ordered a set of turn signal lamps but they they sent the wrong ones. I E-mailed them a pic and they responded the next day. Told me to keep the lamps and they sent out a new set that day.

So, all the way around, a good experience for me. I have no complaints.

I've been contemplating fog lights lately... just not sure if I can wire them up properly (they would just be an aux switch). Other than that I just finally took a picture of the plugs that I took out last weekend. As you can see they were quite worn.
