Yesterday instead of pulling the fuse or putting some sort of device to keep the dome light off when you don't have doors on I just pulled the bulbs out. Now it still chimes of I leave the lights on. The done light wasn't very effective anyway since I have a mag light. Price: free!

Nope. The gear has a slight curve to it that fit perfect in the palm of your hand. But no it doesnt hurt at all.

I finally got my jerry can mounts in from smittybilt they seem good quality and well made I went with these ones so I can lock the Jerry cans down. They are different from the normal red base mounts thought about getting those. But anywho I have a problem. The bolts on the mount don't lone up with the arm that attaches to the tire carrier. The arms are made to fit the red Jerry can mounts. Sooo I can either resale my smittybilt mounts and buy the red ones orrrrr I can get a sheet of metal weld it to the mount then drill holes to allow me to bolt the carrier to the arm.... I'm highly considering reselling and just getting the red mounts/base but idk if the hold the cans down well or offer a locking system. Any of you know?

"bring up my post" or another way to bring the thread to the top of the unread list in order to get an answer/more responses

I need to every once in a while. I use the app on my phone and it's a PITA to find the thread when I get a notice from it.

Sorry if it bothers y'all.

Out of curiosity, I'm looking to purchase some of the missile style switches with LEDs for my auxiliary lights but the only place I can find them anymore is eBay. Anybody buy some elsewhere?
