4LinkFan The old Heep turned over 200,000 miles today. And at the time she was in 4 low and pointed up a hill... the way it should be. The next hundred thousand miles should be fun.

I have the same sound bar, where did you get the LEDs for it. The lights that come with it are basically in usable ...so dim

Fun..hah not what I'd say. But it was totally doable ..worth every penny I spent 7.00 on bulbs and another 3.00 for the column shifter lights and I even bought strip led lights 18in rolled them up stuffed in dome light and hard wired directly

just buy the socket for your ratchet that fits the bolts holding the windshield to the roll cage then it just folds right down

Today I installed my locking console and now I am going to install the new crank position sensor due to an intermitant crank no start issue. And when that's all done and while I am doing I am going to drink a few Rainer beers...

How's that quality on that sound bar?
