I had the same problem and I took out the air control switch panel and just changed the switch for the fan speed (the one on the far left) and now it blows in all speeds.

Two things:
A) I would listen to Colo-TJ. He's given me advice on what not to do and what would help my Jeep more so. He knows what he's talking about.

B) I had those same rear light guards and they started to literally rust away. Just a head
ups for you. But they work very well when backing up into something (don't ask). I still like the look of them though.

I have considered removing the step but with my t-case lowered I think the step hides it a little. I don't like the look of the t-case so low and I don't want to do a mml.

After I installed the light guards I put on some new Bosch wiper blades, added some injector cleaner and removed the rear seat to have some more space. I put a plastic tub with cover from Home Depot in the back with all my recovery tools. Tool kit, tow straps, blanket, wd40, fire extinguisher and some other things.

Today was good I got a lot done that was starting to pile up.

What do you guys think of the factory fogs?

Would you swap them out or just add a light guard to them to match the rest of the lights? The guards are 30 a pair.

My fan control was acting up, it would only work on one speed and the speed was in the middle of 2 settings.

I got a new BLOWER FAN SPEED SWITCH CONTROL and now it works like a charm.

Below are 2 pics on of the front of the fan bezel with all the controls and the second is the SWITCH CONTROL. Both are circled in red.

Hey, nice build.

Just changing the switch will only work for a short time. The problem is the blower motor starts to wear, and it starts pulling more current. When that happens, the way that the jeep is wired it will melt the switch. The perment fix is to replace the switch, blower motor and do the relay mod. With the relay mod, you will only use the switch to switch power to the relay, and not to the blower motor. If you search in the forum you will find the relay mod. Good luck and keep it up.

finally got my tires and rims put on. DAMN they ride better than my all terrains. no vibs no shimmy just smooth as silk. highly recommend the mud claws. I used the ion rim which has 3.25 bs and there is no rubbing on anything at full lock.
