For those of you who shop Amazon, I bought a smittybuilt 2781 5.65 CFM air compressor for $24.95 normally $145. Once it processed I bought 1 more, figured I couldn't go wrong at that price!

I bought it amazon prime, I just checked again, it's the one that says amazon prime eligible. It now says shipping time two to four weeks, but the price is still 24.95. The first one I ordered said 2 left and has shipped the second says march 5-15, at least it's coming! I'll repost when the First one arrives to let you know if it was too good to be true.

Yeah I have prime too. To get that price you have to click under the normal check out where it says more buying choices. I'm checking it out. If I don't log in to my prime account it adds 50 shipping both ways say its the super saving shipping option. Seams odd.

So you don't see them on there any more as in you bought the last 2? I still see them available the way I'm about to.

Well I orderd it but I have to wait the 2-4 weeks. Even prime. I think you got the last one available for the right away. Probably waiting for your second one?

When I ordered the first one, it said "2 left, order soon" When I got an email saying estimated arrival Feb 16 with a grand total of 24.95, I ordered another one. That one I got an email saying Mar 5-15 estimated arrival. I'm hoping I didn't get screwed, for 50 bucks I'm gonna risk it for 2 compressors. I'll let you know what I get.

Just tried this on my 98se. Pretty cool. Although there were no codes, just counted from 1-9 and the gauges/lights did their little dance but my tripometer just went back to displaying the last mileage. I take it this is a good thing? Or is it supposed to display a code no matter what?

Thanks! I got them from a 4x4 Outfitter shop just down the road a piece. He may work you a deal and ship you some, I'm not sure. I can find out if anyone is interested. It's $135 tax n everything for the pair with a wiring harness.

It wasn't hard at all, the wiring harness that they come with make it really simple. It can be a little frustrating running the wires and doing it right to make it look nice, but it's worth it. I'd be glad to walk you thru it if you need me too. It's pretty much plug and play though.

Okay I just bought one... As a struggling high school kid I figure it'd be stupid of me to miss that opportunity. Someone please tell me I made the right choice.

Had to pay 15 dollar shipping though so came out to ~40$

Btw there goes my money for sheet metal/tubes for rocker guards.

I just ordered one as well. Total to my door was $27.15. I don't really need it, but I can't pass up that kind of price.

That's because the code reading trick DOES NOT work on 98,99, and some/most 2000s tjs and xjs. What you did is a gauge cluster test. Helps you see what bulbs and gauges are not working propperly.

I have that same setup.. except I have and additional two on the front bumper instead of the stock fogs.. the two on the bumper are spots and the two at the base of the windshield are floods. I have the floods pointed outwards at about a 30 degree angle to light up the sides of the trail at night.
You made a great choice and will love them. They are really bright.

Out of gas with a 1/4 of a tank left. Guess its time for a new sensor.

Nice! I do love them they are more than what I expected. These are the floods as well, and I was actually thinking about putting some spots on my bumper as well. Great minds think alike! Lol.
