That's a much more fun approach, it's a Jeep!

I would like to get it weighed sometime though. I saw that they have weigh stations at Loves. Think I might ask to wiegh it.

Haha, I want to shed some lbs off mine. She's a fatty.

Loves will weigh it. I think it is around $10.

Make it your New Years Resolution!

I've been looking at Fog Light replacements. Wanting LEDs of course. Just recently found this, what do you think? I am going to try and find reviews.

Very interesting, hope you buy them and give them a try. I have been thinking of replacing mine too instead of mounting LEDs to the front bumper.

That's the idea. I want something functional, and I really don't want to be blinding on-comers. D2's and Dullys are too bright for fogs IMO. Later I want the 10" E-Series LED bar mounted on the winch, but that's for off-road.

Of course I will let you all know if I get 'em. Thanks for looking!

If all that took you 17hrs we should have no problem (knock on wood) getting mine on.
