    I'm sure I'll upgrade from my UCAs at some point but going to see if I can get a few more years out of them with the new ball joints. The mods never stop! :D

    Wired in some extra USBs for better charging ports.

    Question though! While digging through the dash I saw that the A-Trac wiring harness had a split, one group of wires plugged to the A-Trac button and the other group plug just dummied to the back of the blank that was in that spot. What’s that splitter wiring harness for? I noticed there was also a wiring harness dummied to the other blank as well

    How hard were they to adjust? Did you use existing holes for the pins or drill holes?

    I drilled holes for them. I can take pics if you like. And they weren’t hard to adjust. I pretty much just put them low, and would close the hood. Didn’t engage, so I’d raise the pins a little bit, and try again. Maybe took 4-5 times to get it right. All in all not too hard.

    I started on my front bumper still have a lot to do but got the base done. Still need to do skids, add some more supports, light tabs, plug the ends and maybe a valence. I also cut out the stock crossmember and made my own out of tubing it really cleaned up the front end and gave me a lot more clearance.

    Re did my retrofits. New lenses, frames, and put some silica packs inside just in case. Looks a million times better in person.

    Today was busy! Got my Leer 100R installed, and replaced the entune head unit with a Sony XAV AX5000. What a huge improvement over the stock sound! I just installed Kicker CS series component speakers with titanium tweeters last week and the sound was better, but I was not blown away. With this new head unit the improvement is HUGE! One of the reasons I wanted that head unit was the capacitive touch screen (glass screen, like a smart phone or tablet) and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed. 42AB416E-2D66-4384-973D-B8410BD54F62.jpg 7AE96632-5F67-49D9-AE5B-EDF833962F2C.jpg 60552727-FC1A-49C9-A869-7C39E08DE7AB.jpg 4BD38F14-E22B-4BC7-9280-EAA0F7B34BA4.jpg 6A97526F-0D28-4D93-8C31-801153EBFAA3.jpg

    I did! Totally worth the extra dollars. I usually have an iPad mounted on there when I’m on the trails and it works awesome for that.

    I just did both sides last week. Super easy job! If there are no issues that come up, you should be done within 30 mins. Good luck!!
