Test the near side of the inline fuse connection. Be sure it has power and then test just past the inline fuse. I've had the soldering come loose on the connections.
Alright, thanks....I'll check it out tomorrow...

never hurts to go back over everything and make sure all connections are tight, all grounds are solid(most common problem with installs like this),everything is properly connected on the switch as it should be, etc. go through the instructions and double check all these simple steps and then if needed, replacing a fuse is a cheap thing to do anyways. btw which ones did you get? the ones on my bumper or the ones on the windshield? (my bumper ones are powered direct to the battery and windshield ones are powered into my fuse box inside)

Thanks and yeah the idea is to finish the black. As for the neighbors truck, he is looking to trade it for a CJ-7 or a TJ if anyone is interested I can get his information and more info on the truck.

They are Bushwackers they have a 8" lip from the fender and the only drawback is that they are plastic adn not very sturdy but they look great. They have been cracked a few times and needless to say flex seal is worth the money

i have 6 inch bushwacker flares and the plastic is pretty flimsy. i mean not really flimsy because they dont design them thinking ill be leaning into the engine bay all day. long story short i have minor cracks in my front driver side one. did you spray flex seal from underneath? because the finish on mine is pretty good and i dont want to have to do the whole thing.

I got the ones on your windshield but I wired them to the battery (the directions gave that as an option). What did you ground your lights to?

I put on a about two coats from the back and it seems to work very good havent had any problems since. That stuff sprays different though it looks like ti is going on heavy and looks horrible but it dries nicely.

Installed ACCEL tune up kit (cap, rotor, plugs, and red wires) also mounted my $10 Harbor Freight 6" look a like KC lights. It was much easier to drill thru the front bumper than I thought.

OK, today, I cut out a rusted shock tab, patched my frame and welded in a new one from Morris. Was pretty nice if I do say so. Also, new 1.25 body lift came in today. So this weekend, will be pulling the crappy 3" out and replacing it. Hopefully this will go as smooth as it looks like it should. With a bit of luck, my body bolts will come free with little hassle.

They make it in two models 250lbs and 400lbs it's like $50.00 difference and the only thing that's different is the size of the hinges. All together it ran 3 bills shipped and I still had to paint it myself lol

$155 Dollars!!!

Recently, my water pump went south. I took my 1989 Wrangler 4.2L "T" to the local dealership here on Cape Cod, MA. They told me new pump $378, new fan clutch $284, Thermostat $142 and oil change and filter $53. That is over $800!!! I have never done any mechanic work in my life, but I did it all for $165 and that includes a $10 set of wrenches and about 9 hours of Youtube videos. The result? I feel like a MAN, and my Jeep is running like a Rolex. Knock on wood. It took me two days, but that is because I am slow and careful. Guys I seriously feel like I climbed a mountain. Thanks to all the great posters here for the suggestions and hints.

Replaced the in tank pump in a 20 gallon tank. What a pain, exhaust in the way, tight fit around the fuel and breather lines, and tough to get back in. New filer as well, but that was not the problem. But it fixed the problem, which was around 6psi fuel pressure and would not run at all - now right on in 31 to 39 range - this is a 94 4cyl, and performance, what little they have anyway, is much better. Its hooked up behind my motorhome to head up the coast - US1, for the long weekend - wish me luck

Unfortunately, it's a YJ...you may get to do repairs quite often!

And that's why they are called stealerships, $142 for a thermostat, that's a $5 part good to see that you get it done.

Ok, so, all the wiring checked out fine.....but I still couldn't get it to work! I took the lights back and exchanged them for a new pair thinking that they were just defective. Got the new ones all hooked up.......NOTHING!! What the hell am I missing??

This sounds pretty easy. How is your ground? Did you make sure to sand the paint off the metal so you get good contact? If you have a good ground, and the hot coming off the battery is hooked directly to your light with no luck then what you have is defective. If it works then install your relay and finish wiring it.
