Next I added the first of several off road lights. These are driving LED lights. LED does not do long range very well, but driving and flood they excel at

These are triggered by illumination of the high beams through a relay carrying their own 40A circuit wired directly to the battery

That thing sits so low from the factory, that I think I'll see if I can get a 2017 Z06 front splitter to bolt up. Might as well build on the road hugging formula theme that Jeep is using here!

Being all road-hog filthy from rollin' in the dirt, I thought it was a good time to pull out the hose and do something useful. So I challenged the big pre-ranger to wash the dog while I squirted him. One has to accomplish his mission without distraction and under duress if he is a Ranger...Call it training! ;-))

So I had to get the rotary file out and elongate the holes to get the hoop to bolt up. That is really poor for a brand new part. THis is nothing more than more chinese junk!

Didn't I mention something along those lines Tate?

Christmas for the GJ

Mark over at National Tire and wheel who I now have on speed-dial has set me up with tires and wheels for the Girly Jeep.

These are Christmas presents for the Wife, since she needs tires, and wanted the GJ to be a bit more manley,. I wanted a good highway ride since 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999%

of her miles are on the road, although I recorded 26" of difficult off road driving on our lawn acounting for the

0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 difference.

I just left it up to Mark who decided on 285/70R-17 tires which are either 11.00 or 11.50 Nitto terra grapplers mounted on Fuel D552 wheels. He also shipped me the appropriate Rough Country 2.5" lift kit

Note that the stock pic is a GJ of the exact same color as the GJ we keep hidden in her garage
