And you also defeated one of the best anti-theft devices found in any vehicle... Good job. Let me know what your insurance company says when your jeep gets stolen.

Just drove it today but had a chance to drive it last night on some incredibly dark backroads after installing an ARB (IPF) H4 heavy-duty headlight wiring harness yesterday and all I can is WOW! The difference is phenominal now with the low beams that it's like having a football field of light in front of you that not only extends far forward but to the sides as well. The high beams are excellent now too but it's so good even on the low beams that I didn't need them. My headlights are aimed properly too so I'm not blinding anyone.

I already was using genuine Hella E-codes with OSRAM Silverstar 55 watt bulbs on the stock wiring for the past year which was a slight improvement but there is no comparrision now. If you haven't upgraded your headlight wiring, it's money well-spent even if you don't plan on using high-wattage bulbs.

If I were you, Id find a way to hide it, so you can only engage it. Maybe sneak it in the glove box or something, and when you want to start it, hold it to the ignition for the 10 seconds or so it takes to register it.

That chip is way too small, this is only the start tho I'm hoping to get a new removable steering wheel and hopefully eventually convert to push button start

I don't mean to be....rude....but why are you disabling a good (very good) anti-theft device & planning on disabling your airbag?

Idk what state you're in...or what your insurance company would have to say about disabling your airbag and your only anti-theft device...& I just don't see the benefits.

Had my CB checked by a pro shop, SWR was spot on. I'll have to remove the radio for them to up the output, but I'm not too worried about that. Need a heavier spring on the antenna to perform better on highway, but they were out. Not too worried about that either...works great on the trails.

Then finally got me some top notch clevis shackles, as I have lost a couple over the years and finding the shortage inconvenient at times.

Really should change the oil one more time since rebuild...might get to that tomorrow, might not

Need to inspect my steering and axle locators for tightness before wheeling on Sunday.

Planning to get with Willis36 to rebuild my traclock on Saturday.

Removable steering wheel? To wear on a necklace like flava flav?


Hey, maybe you can be the first to shoot for the the "clap-on" start option.


Good luck, I just got my codes so I can re-code my doors to match my ignition key. Hated carrying 2 keys about.

How did you get it into the inside of the frame well?

This is similar to what I used to spray Fluid Film in my frame.
