    One Week Anniversary Today

    Words of wisdom. Stay with it Don … you can do it. The difference between smoking and not smoking, is not lighting up. I too was a heavy smoker for decades. Many unsuccessful attempts to quit. A positive diagnosis for bladder cancer 9 years ago was a motivator. Lots of nasty BCG treatments before undergoing total cystectomy with reconstruction for neobladder. It's as bad as it sounds. Quit … YESTERDAY. Or sooner.

    jeep lighting mods...

    This will be a brief review of TruckLite 27450C and the knock-offs you can find on Amazon, eBay and elsewhere. Included in this write-up are the aforementioned TruckLites, Eagle Lights and CREE LED headlight of similar design. I may edit the content with links in the future, but this is the "non-electrical N-guy-neer" (read: average consumer) version of the comparison. If you've looked into these, you know the price point of the TruckLite is well over $300 for a pair, $199 for the Eagle Lights and about $100 for the CREE lights. I found a pair of used Eagle Lights on Craigslist, which in and of themselves were a significant upgrade to any of the sealed beams available. In the past I always ran Sylvania SIlverStar Ultras and the Eagle Light range and overall performance was a noted improvement for my tired night eyes. Apologies for the lack of photographic comparison. The next two pics are Eagle Lights high and low ... For comparison to the Eagle Lights I'm running, I purchased and installed TruckLite 27450C and the CREE 5X7 LED equivalent for comparison. Hate to disappoint you guys who dropped the coin for the TruckLites, but the knockoffs perform equally well. The color, range and appearance are almost identical. The only obvious difference is the components. TruckLite board ... Eagle Light/CREE "board" ... Eagle Light and CREE are essentially identical assemblies (at least in visual examination). TruckLites have heavier gauge wiring, with thicker insulation and the connector quality is better. When I disconnected the Eagle Lights to do the comparison, one of the blades fell out of the connector housing. It did snap back in place, but you would have to use a lot of force to push a blade out of the TruckLite's connector housing. I've run the Eagle Lights since October 2017 and have been pleased with their performance. I paid what CREE lights cost new plus $15 for postage and would have been better off buying CREE with free shipping off Amazon. I don't know what the longevity will be, but I have some back-ups. TruckLite does offer a 3 year limited warranty. Meanwhile, you might find a deal on TruckLites (I paid $240 shipped), but I would suggest buying the CREE lights and putting the $200+ back in your pocket.

    Jim Oshel has passed

    He was very active when I first found CC.com ... It was evident to me from the start he was a major contributor who shared his knowledge of our trucks freely. He certainly had a bunch of'em. I recognized his absence and wondered what had become of him. Sorry to hear of his passing.

    99 Cherokee

    I loved my 99 XJ and would be driving it today if some bonehead hadn't wrecked it on me. Never had a lick of trouble.

    Newbie build - 91 Eliminator

    Yep, looks great! Where did you get the tailgate lettering? I need to get some and don't want to get junk that will peel off.
  11. Thanks for the compliments ... much appreciated. I'm really happy with outcome. It was a package deal. I found an ad on Craigslist that sounded good. He did some work on my XJ ... I discovered some rust/rot when cleaning it up. He replaced a floor pan, some rot behind a rear wheel under a bumper end and repair/repaint of a full length key job on the drivers side. That and the prep and paint for the MJ was $2700 all in. Considering some other quotes I had taken, I was pretty good with that. He had some trouble with the paint "wrinkling" with his first effort. I sent him a text with your question and this is his reply; ""Remove and/or feather out as much paint as possible. Three light coats of SEM high build primer and sand with red scuff pad between coats. Spray with SEM trim black. Final color is satin black, single stage enamel." When we talked about it, he said that would enable me to get any wax off the flares if I was sloppy when waxing. I think that's just the light and the body line. No stripe, but now you have me thinking! As an aside (Don), I put 96 Chrome head light doors and full grille on her. Needed a little tweeking because the configuration is a little different than '88, but it fits!

    Station Wagons

    I still think the Wagoneer header panel looks like the Family Truckster
  13. Holy crap. Yeah, I could probably manage that. As to the links ... when it comes to dropping transmission pans unsupervised I'd likely do more harm than good.
  14. Thanks guys. The repair is beyond me, but I'm going to point to this for my shop. Thus far they haven't fixed it.
