Re: third brake light

If the light/lens is there the light has to work. It was my understanding that a third brake light is not required for inspection. This is right, and technically on your jeep Chris if you didn't lift it, you don't need a modified sticker, I know your jeep is modified but if the stock steering/suspe...

I just hope to wheel it some this year. :( I think I only had it offroad twice last year.

I had forgotten about that accident. I assume everyone's recovered health-wise?

Re: Gateway to the Cumberlands Jeep Jamboree

Looks like a beautiful area. What did you think of the Jeep Jamboree experience as a whole? Was this a classic Jambo with food and everything, or a Just Trails deal?

Re: Got me another Jeep!

Awesome jeep! Welcome back to the dark side!

BTW, where'd your TJ end up? I see one running around Fairmont occasionally and always wonder if that's it.

Re: Strapping Down a Jeep

What about position on the trailer? I'm pulling with a 1/2 ton, CC, 4x4 Silverado. My thought was to pull the Jeep onto the trailer until the truck squatted a little. Technically you want 10-15% of the weight on the tongue. If you don't have the ability to calculate, "they" say the rule of thumb is...

Re: Strapping Down a Jeep

I always strap to the axle. I cross the rear straps, but leave the front uncrossed. No idea why. :) Like highlander mentioned, f you strap to the frame, you have to cinch it down really tight to keep it from bouncing and loosening the straps. I lost a strap on a four wheeler because of that. I also ...

Tentatively we're looking at the first weekend of spring break (April 12 & 13). Like I said, though, depends on the house progress.

Re: Homemade in-cab winch controller?

It's worth the $$ How so? You can get a Contura II momentary SPDT for $10. If it were a three-wire winch, I could sacrifice an orange extension cord and throw in a few spade terminals to have custom controls that match my ARB switches for well under $25, let alone $70. I just don't know much about ...

Homemade in-cab winch controller?

Anybody have an in-cab winch controller that is not by 12voltguy, particularly for a 5-wire warn? I can't see his deal being worth $70. I've seen a few other places that offer a controller similar to 12voltguy's with no wiring harness for a little less that his, but I'm thinking about doing somethin...
