    Switched out my black headlight bezels for chrome in the quest to make the white look more balanced (I’ve had them for some time). I plan on putting a washer behind the steering stops later tonight as my Duratracs rub.

    Dropped it off the get 4.88's, e-lockers, front axle u-jounts, and ball joints installed. Hopefully I'll like the 4.88's with 31's.

    Hello everyone! Spent all afternoon tracking down the issue of blower only working on high. Guy at napa told me it couldn't be the blower relay. I had already replaced the blower resistor, so purchased a new switch only to find the switch in my TJ is not like the ones that show listed for it (plastic knob shaft vs shorter metal shaft on mine, also one mounting screw vs 2 on mine). Anywho, guess what, it was the relay all along.

    Thankfully, my fan switch is ok as it apparently unubtainium now.

    Bought a Gennie Shifter Lo-dapt II for a JK. It fits over the shifter shaft. Used part of a plastic hanger cause the factory one is too short. Instead of pushing the thumb button I just push the whole knob down. Part SKU1051.
    To mount adapter I marked the shift shaft 2.75” up from the console and taped the SKU1051 in place. I then marked and drilled a hole in the shift shaft for the set screw.
    Then I slid the plastic hanger piece into the top of the SKU1051 until it made contact with the factory push button insert and tightened that set screw per instructions.
    Next I removed the SKU1051 and cut off the excess hanger piece. I then tapped the hole I drilled to 8-32 and reinstalled the SKU1051 and the set screw.
    Now just attach a knob and done.
    The adapter comes with 16mm threads.

    I’d be an angry jeep too if forced to wear a Pats tire cover!

    It does make a big difference, stay tuned for future pictures with the chrome but once I changed my black wheels <plug> still for sale </plug> to moabs, the black headlight bezels stood out like a sore thumb. I think the black/white look is good but with small amounts of black as the white quickly looks out of balance

    I’ve been curious what all options there were to strengthen this area. Where did you locate this from? Is it much different/cheaper than an exogate?

    Savvy transfer case cable .

    Works great ,solid engagement in all modes , 9 times out of 10 , but occasionally feels like it binds or something..

    My guess is it's the transfer case just being fussy

    Any one had a similar deal? All's tight and adjusted , engagement is dead on at the transfer case lever .

    It’s literally the exact same thing as the exogate, and the good news is I didn’t strip that last bolt hole after all. Project done!! Edit, extreme terrain had the best price I found

    I’d like to see the mirrors done in Berliner... they just kinda look plain to me sometimes. Maybe it’s the size? I feel like the texture would help
