To avoid blinding other drivers, the H13 bulbs MUST be adjustable, as I said above; position them vertical, with the LEDs set to 9 & 3. Perhaps you would need to adjust the angles of your Headlights a bit, but the must important thing is the rotational adjustment on the bulbs. Then they throw a nice wide not blinding beam.

Nope, I did my homework, ( that option GTR, was way to expensive ), so went to Amazon, to check their best recommendation, and I ended up with JDM Astar, one brand, one supplier, all came down in just one box. The hole car for just the Third part of those two ( H13 ) from GTR.

This is what I ordered, ( since there's some resistors and stuff, I decided to take the car to my Mechanic, for the splicing and welding, etc... ).:

Total for the order $ 209.87 + Shipping to Costa Rica.

Thanks,

The thing that the H13 for high/low beam had rotational adjustment helped a lot to have a nice wide and no blinding beams. Best position is horizontal, ( leds set to 9 & 3 ).

Chereveco Today electric mechanic installed all the outside LEDs, so the hole thing is running LEDs inside and outside.


Two weeks ago the silencer started to leak, so got it replaced....

JeepN4KC I'm seeing some pretty awesome maintenance going on in here. Nice work er'body!

Well........I was supposed to take the XJ out and wheel on this Ides of March. Buuuuuuut the weather hasn't cooperated at all this weekend. Too much rain, cold temps, no sun. The place we were going is not a place for that - gets way too slimey and makes it literally no fun.

However - the day wasn't a total bust because it gave me the chance to PM the LIberty.

117,516 on the ticker

Got some fresh oil and filter swapped in
Air filter (I have a drop in K&N but this weather had me grab a cheap temporary while I clean, dry, recharge the K&N)
And I rotated the tars

Now I'm having a beer because I did not get a single drop of oil on the garage floor - and the KK crowd knows how much of a PITA the oil filter is!

Cheers all!

lfhoward For a while now this broken bolt was preventing me from reinstalling my newly powder coated rock sliders. The bolt broke off when I removed them for painting.


Well today the bolt met its end via being drilled out...


And got turned into this...


Which freed up the hole...


And allowed me to bolt the rock sliders back on!


At one point I had to decide whether to use an easy-out, and decided against it and instead to keep on drilling. I had been hammering on the bolt and bathing it in Aerokroil for weeks, and it showed no interest in turning AT ALL. I was using vice grips on it and nothing, except rounding it off. Thus, I figured I would probably just break the easy-out in the hole and create a worse problem. I'm glad I just kept drilling it. I used cobalt reverse thread bits, and went really slowly, frequently cleaning the metal scraps off the bit and keeping it wet with oil.

KG4MXV Got almost the exact model.
My KK is 2012 70th anniversary.
but has some weird issues.
#1 the trailer lights are on 24/7
#2 the servo for the blend door spins every time someone opens and closes a door.

I have replaced the TIPM with a reman and it still has the same issues.
BTW my 2012 actually has a 2011 TIPM so be careful when ordering TIPM's

I have found the cluster of relays for the trailer lights and all of them are energized
as soon as the battery is connected wither or not the ignition is on or not.
Really hate how it was put in by the factory or dealer.
Three relays wrapped up in rubber foam shoved into the rear quarter panel.

When I get a chance I will make a proper control module box.


Not so unheard problem.
The skylsider leaks like a sieve. and I have coated the entire roof with a sealant.
looking to get a donor roof and weld in a roof skin and rhino liner the roof and Install
a roof rack for the entire roof.

Chereveco Parts in Costa Rica, Friday gonna get dirty hands.

Hope for no surprises with the bolts, etc...

New front hubs finally. ( Managed to use the car even with anti slip light flashing from time to time and a tuc tuc tuc sound when turning to the right ),

Also going to change 4 rotors, and ATF with filter.

I'll post some pics.....

Congrats on completing that difficult job. If nothing else (besides a working heater), you now know you have what it takes to disassemble the dashboard with all the wire harnesses, breakable plastic bits, etc. and put it back together successfully. Everything else will seem pretty easy from now on! &#x1f604;
