  1. I hadn’t either, but as soon as I swapped the full Gage cluster in place of the dummy lights, my alternator quit charging. I figured it was a bad alternator since it took a few days to run out of juice and die. Replaced alternator and still no charging. The cluster I picked up was on a YJ with v6 I believe. The alternator on both the 4.0 and 2.5 both need an exciter wire circuit in order to start charging. That is handled by the light in the dummy cluster and somehow must be handled by a diode built into the gauge cluster. I suppose it is possible that the v6 models use a different alternator
  2. No worries Gentlemen! Thanks for all the good info! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. This truck was originally automatic? I would have never known! Whoever did the conversion, did a great job.

  7. Congratulations! That is a great accomplishment! I never had the opportunity to do scouting growing up since we didn’t have a good troop near us at the time. I am currently the Troopmaster for a Trail Life USA troop here in west Texas. (TLUSA came out of BSA in 2014 when the board split) It has been an amazing experience to do with my son. We are getting ready for our annual 50 mile/5 day canoe trip through Big Bend National Park. It’s one of my favorite trips we do all year. What was your freedom project?

  8. Jesse J, I just saw that gladiator bumper, and I like it too! I really am a terrible MJ owner! LOL
  9. Thank You. I have had some people really hate on it on another thread. (cardinal sin or something?) Most have liked it though. I like it, and that is all that matters. Cost $55 instead of $250-350 each on ebay for oem.
  10. Coolwind57, That's pretty much correct. The mounting tab on the back of the watertight wrangler lenses matched up perfectly with part of the rear housing allowing a small bolt and locknut to be used to fasten it securely. I used a black adhesive caulk (Flex seal) to fill the small gaps in the cutout, then taped off the new lenses and shot the whole thing with spray bedliner to match the texture on both pieces while adding durability. I wish I had taken pics or video during the process, but the fact is that even I am amazed at how well they turned out.
  11. Coolwind57, I used the original cracked tail lamp assemblies as a sort of adapter for the wrangler lights. I did not cut any sheet metal and retained the original mounting screws so I could easily go back to oem later if desired. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. KoopaKid, Yeah, mine were both broken and covered in tape when I got the truck, so I didn't have anything to lose.
  13. Yeah, I was starting to get a bit frustrated this week. Now I can move forward with other stuff. :)
