Light squares

Glad someone else responded, it's most visible at close range obviously. Then I realized my Prius Hybrid Plug-in (I live in Cali) has the same thing.

Going to depend on the size of your wires. For the speed wire, I'm going to have to remove the console and try and find a routing lane


THanks. M7 huh? Is that empty or do you use one of those "add-a-fuse" things?
You'd have to have an add-a-fuse. The voswitch I installed used that same port and had an add-a-fuse in the kit so I just tapped into it.

Thats what I did. Super easy and it gets the job done. Mine will flash in sync with the headlights off. When the head lights are on, they will flash opposite each other.

I like the looks of my jeep better this way it will not be a "cookie cutter". and yes, I modified the fender side marker wiring as well, now it alternates to flash.

Maybe the Prius is to atone for the appalling JK gas mileage!

Got her back from the dealership after getting the oil cooler assembly replaced and they also took care of the airbag recall.

Now I wait impatiently for the call that my KO2’s are in and ready to be mounted to the Quadratec Hard Rock wheels sitting in my basement. God I hate waiting.

There must be balance in the force

60 mpgs and maybe 15 mpgs

Now I just need to convince the wife that a Ford F-150 is a better family car than an Acadia

Almost there

Threw on a Fox 2.0 Steering Stabilizer and a Smittybilt SRC Step.

Couple of notes on the Smittybilt step. And I acknowledge that for $300 it's a budget friendly add-on and brand.
- Why couldn't they add a 3rd mount location, the jeep already has the spot for one, to strengthen the center.
- I would not trust this thing as a rock guard
- Wish they could bring it slightly closer to the body and up to hit the old bold holes for a cleaner look

Finally got around to putting laminx on the headlights and turn signals. I like the yellow fogs for now. Crappy pics for reference since its cold out. Fwiw the headlights are definitely doable if you take your time and use a hair dryer.

Had the passenger airbag recall done.

Also took an opportunity to document the benefit of an engine block heater. That and synthetic oil mean instant cold start, and no excessive engine damage.
