A little grib scares me. My driving "style" amd grib could lead to some exciting breaks
We need to get those new wheels on the trails :)
I'm thinking some time in January

I need specifics on that and the install. I really miss a thermometer in my XJ as I'm used to it in my other cars.
there's a bunch of write ups out there on it, here's one:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/auto-dimming-rearview-mirror-compass-temperature-install-1459831/

The mirror can be found in most late 90's/early 2000's GM full size trucks and SUV's. Look for the one with a compass and temp button. Cost about 10 bucks at the yard.

You can build your own wiring harness for them, or buy one off Amazon like I did. If you build your own you'll want the wiring pigtail and the temp sensor from the core support of your mirror donor vehicle.

Harness: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005DXK838/ref=olp_product_details?ie=UTF8&me=

Then just find a switched power source to tap into and you're all set.

He did that damage at hidden springs.

*ahem* following me
My door got tapped on by that overly friendly rock too.


I checked fluids in my jeep just in case stuff freezes over up here and I have to go somewhere. I'm holding off on finding another 8.25 since a friend of mine will be selling me his D30/8.25 with 4.56s in them soon. Been trying to get my Subaru to run correctly in the mean time.

Maybe if I was going to pick and pull for something else? Looks like $50 on ebay and I don't have to traipse through the mud to find that :) Plus I don't have one closer than Belton
