Oh yeah, not today but recently, I:

--Installed an aFe CAI and got 1-2 mpg improvement.

--Installed a Arrington catch can.

--Deleted the "Hemi" plastic engine hoodie.

--Swapped 9011 bulbs into the high beanms, for a good improvement over the previous bulbs.

--Swapped 9011 bulbs into the Fog light housings, for no practical purpose.

I got them off eBay. If you search 55W SLIM AC HID Kit it should come up, if you need more details just let me know. And yes, I went with the HIR low beams for now since I can't afford to do a full HID mod right now. And went with the 3000k HID for the fogs

First, you are right, the 9012's do not have a reflector tip, however the WK's do not need one because they have the pre-installed tip cover built into the headlight, so all is good there.
Second, the HID's are 3000k and they will be going in the fogs, my brother (Omelet) has been running them for a while and he says he loves them, so that is what I went with.

Finally got my exhaust switched out. Went with the Gibson. Easier to make up your mind which setup to go with when a crazy deal is thrown at you. Thanks again Kolak! That thing sounds awesome.

Got the estimate to fix my jeep, it's a whole lot of not fun. $4k possibly more if they can't patch in the rocker and have to replace the entire piece!

Yay for insurance!

Well good thing my agent covers everything! Sucks that I have to pay a deductible but it's better than paying for all of it!

Literally the discussion was:

Me: I need to fix this.
Agent: what did you do?
Me : hit a rock and a tree top winching a buddy out of a hole in the woods, bad day!
Agent: ok, sounds fun... Lets take some pics and get an estimate!

Yeah, she rocks!
