    Instrument Panel Lights

    It's not hard at all, i found it to be a bit time consuming though. But, it was well worth it to have all the gauges lit. That thread was very helpful for me. Two things that I'd add, if you're big boned (like I am), you might find removing the driver's seat helpful. Sure makes things...

    Opinion On Goodyear Wranglers?

    YUCK YUCK and more YUCK!!! I hated these tires. I got mine from the recall thing a few years back. I wished I had lucked up and gotten the Michelins. If you have a few extra bucks, buy better tire. We dont get much ice and snow here, so I can't vouch for the weather issues. But as for...
