Sounds good to me. Thanks, man!

Swapped the broken under hood bulb with a LED replacement. Bright! Simply took out the light fixture, and soldered the LEDs across the inner connections that normally the bulb clips into, taking care to note the polarity of the LEDs. I got 4 of them off eBay for less than $3 delivered. Canadian Tire wanted $12 for one!! Even the bulb replacements were 2 for $5.
(My crack already has padding around it BTW, but none on my armrest yet!!)

Admired yesterday's work - installed Bosch H4 housings from Busdepot + Sylvania XtraVision H4/H2 60/55 watt bulbs + headlight alignment. Reminded myself how much better the black lens trim rings look than the stock 'only-chrome-thing-on-the-Jeep' rings looked.

LET THERE BE LIGHT!!

Drove around with no doors on in 55 degree weather. That's cold here in the heartland of Florida!!! :-)

Now I've got to find me a trail for a test drive!!
Nice!!

Got new rear seats from a Mountaineer to do removable buckets. Cost for the seats $18 each. Now to modify and mount. I think after I remove the headrests I will need to remove about in inch from the front brackets to drop the front of the seat down and that will pull the back part into the cage area to protect the riders. I also need to come up with some sort of disconnect system so I can pull either seat when I only have 2 passengers.

This weekend. Got my antirock and savvy arms on. Rides so much better without the poly rear control arms with 1/2" of play. Axle bolts did not want to come out! Antirock was harder to install than I expected. The torsion bar was a right fit through the bushings.

Got to do a flex test after clearing out the rear wheel well.

Happy with the height i got... Did discod and non discod. Got about two feet higher up with them disconnected!

Not happy that my shocks are my current bumpstops however. Gotta figure out what i want to do about that. If i add some hockey pucks ima lose prolly quite a bit of flex.

Add just enough so your shocks aren't your bumpstops.
