I looked at a 20" flat LED spot light, but those things are expensive!

On a side note, Amazon looks to be running a 30 trial membership on Prime (at least fo me). So free 2-day shipping is nice.

I just got a lockpick, was going to install it (along with a back-up camera) this weekend. Can I ask why you returned your lockpick?

I was stupid....

I had called the vendor to see if they had any in stock (they had been running out qutie a bit). He said "no...I'll have a new shipment in this week"...but then said..."oh wait, I have left here on my desk". I took that one. When I got it, one of the plastic clips on the outside was broken....as if it had been opened roughly. Something told me to send it back right then, but I didn't. I finally got around to installing it a month later...and sure enough...it didn't work. My guess is that someone else had returned that broken unit, and that was why it was on his desk.

I replaced my track bar bolts with new 9/16ths. After I put my other set of wheels and tires on I noticed a shimmy at certain speeds. I think it has more to do with the tires- they were on there when I bought it but I only had them on for a couple of months, then put the "winter tires" on. Shop told me the tires are "cupped" so whoever owned it before me wasn't rotating them as he should have.
Here's some eye candy of my toy complete for now with 33" tires and the 2 or so inch lift:

Nice! That's on my short list of mods.

Where did you pick it up from?

Removed the hardtop and put on the OEM soft top that I got on Craigslist. Also plasti-dipped the antenna black today.

I don't know why the pic loaded upside down.

Finished installing my ultra mount and cb. Also, put on a black jeep emblem on the front. Really like the black vs the chrome. Would have done more, but still waiting on my stuff I ordered last week, so instead the bus got a bath inside and out.

Recorded at 1080p, used iMovie to speed up to 20x or so.
