maybe a dumb question but do these just simply plug into the existing light and replace the OEM bulb?

If I ever had to use it, I wanted a shovel that was as close to full size as possible and able to store inside the Jeep. I found a 40" full blade shovel at Home Depot for $15. I was originally going to mount it on the roll bar, laying horizontal. But I found this 2 1/2" EMT clamp and used it instead.

Something like this might give you more flexibility and space.

Yeah no thank you. Could you imagine trying to dig out hunched over with that little thing? My shovel is next to the subwoofer and out of the way.

Looks good, and as a side note, thank you for putting your flags on properly.

I spent 3 hours stuck in a hole this morning. As I was leaving the veterinarian's office, I noticed a large mud puddle/pothole. My thought process went something like, "I'm not sure how deep that is so I'll drive around it rather than through it. Oh, look, there's a nice smooth stretch of snow covered pavement. That'll work." So I drive over that nice, smooth stretch and suddenly there's a loud crash and my front end drops a good 5 or 6 inches.

I stepped out of the Jeep to see what in the world happened and I see both front tires had broke through ice. Apparently I drove over what basically amounted to a small pond and was stranded. I couldn't move forward or backward, even in 4WD. I tried kitty litter for traction. Nothing. The vet tried to pull me out with his SUV and barely budged me. They called a tow truck which tried to winch me out. The tow truck kept sliding to me, rather than my tires coming out those holes. Eventually the tow truck pushed the flatbed under me and was able to get me out. What an exciting start to the day.

I'm really glad I missed the mud puddle though.

Outside of being able to fit in a backpack or bug-out bag, I don't see the huge interest in these.

Added homemade handles to the front. Adding more orange ascents to my black and orange theme. First paracord project. Pretty fun and much easier than I expected.

BTW, in reference to this ordeal, could I have damaged anything? Nothing was hitting underneath, the axle was clear, not hitting. Anything I should be looking for or be concerned about?

I think you should be fine. You will hear or feel it if something is messed up.
Let this be a lesson to you though. Never. I repeat, never go around a mud puddle with your Jeep. Bad Karma. See what happens!!

Painted the spare tire cover, trying to eliminate the Dealer ad. It looks great, but the paint won't harden. I'm sure I will have permanent dust the next time I go out. Oh well, I was tired of driving a billboard.

Remove the tire cover? I don't and never will understand why people run with covers.

Spray clear over it, then it will dry.

Mounted my Hi Lift to the Tuffy Security Enclosure. Two slightly longer bolts and some plastic spacers. Best part is can't get it off unless you can get inside the Security Enclosure to unscrew it!
