Tired of studying and annoyed by the 2 flickering Autolumination LED's in the cluster, I decided to order all new cluster and HVAC bulbs from Superbrightleds.
The links for any who might need them.

Since yours is a 2004 as well, and I know you're in electrical engineering - I think - how many of each do I need to order for the cluster and HVAC? Did you get some for behind the rocker switches?

EE is correct.

5 74's for the cluster.
3 Neo's for the HVAC (4mm, there are 3,4, and 5 so be sure to pick the right one)

I have an aftermarket panel and switches so they came with their own LED's

That was also some time ago.. I think the avg. front bumper cost now is between 200-500 so thats not too bad when compared to the others. But it does look pretty good. Check your local CL and surrounding areas for one and also check ebay for one.

Found out that in order to remove the sound bar, you have to remove the top. Unfortunately, my GF is only 5ft tall, so she couldn't help lift it.

So, ended up adding a lift to the ceiling.

Nope. It's a trail gear which is no longer made. It has 2 of the diagonals on each immediate side of the winch opening whereas the fabtech only has one per side.

its easy to dismiss the ideas of a child, when you think you have looked at things from every angle and have applied your own experiences... but sometimes I am finding, inexperience and a fresh perspective can actually provide an excellent solution.

he's looking to go into engineering, so I think encouraging him and showing him the ropes in the garage and tools will be beneficial to both of us.
As a current Mechanical Engineering student the time I spent in the garage with my grandfather as a kid was extremely valuable and what really got me into cars, specifically jeeps

QUESTION:

if there were no fuel tank armor / shield in place, would i be able to access the inside rear bumper / frame bolt holes - specifically the two pair between the frame rails?

our QR3 frame hitch / bumper connection plates require i bolt up (thankfully didnt have to align, mark and drill) through them and i cant get my hand back there.

dont know if our fuel tank armor is stock or aftermarket, but it seems to be blocking access.

thanks in advance for your input / responses.
