Filled the nasty open screw hole on my tail light covers. Nothing huge... just wanted to get subscribed to the thread. :popcorn:

They put a new trannie in Tuesday. Was in town when all the dash lights started flickering off and on. I stopped, smoke was coming from under the hood. I opened it and the main harness was on fire. Grabbed my extinguisher from the back (God I am so so glad I bought it), put out the fire. So wire harness fried, big pool of trannie or pwr steering fluid under the driver side behind the bumper. Jeep towed it and are working on it. Hell if I didn't have that extinguisher it would have scragged the whole bloody jeep.

Take a hint, invest in one cause I NEVER thought I'd need it but by golly I did. No pics I'm afraid.

I know. Still not sure if I'm pissed, mad, sad or relieved. Only visible damage is the melted wiring by the battery. Have to replace the whole damn harness and that's not including the wiring for winch and lighting. No clue as to what caused it or if its related to the new trannie instal done wrong or why I was loosing so much fluid on the opposite side of the engine compartment.:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:
But no serious damage. Full coverage ins beside what Jeep has to repair. My jeeps gonna be a bloody study case.

Compared to the stock antenna how flexible is the short antenna? I am guessing its not floppy like the stock but does it bend and come back at least?
It has a bit of flex, but not much.

Put new horns in a few days ago but today all I did was put a set of golf clubs in it and drove them to the golf course. Wouldn't call what I did after that playing golf but it was good exercise.
