    You need to hook up resistors to get them to work properly.

    I actually love my contour HD much easier to use than the gopro I had. Sold that. But the contour has gotten me thinking on some weird camera Ideas

    Probably drl's (daytime running light). I jut had to unplug something under the hood but on yours I believe you have to cut a wire under the dash. There's a few write ups on it. IIRC M3Bassman has done it.

    The pre-2001's don't seem to have the issues with the led's like the 01-04's do. Mine was just plug and play but on the 01-04's you have to solder a resistor. That's about the extent of my knowledge though

    Yikes! Lucky you had the spare parts on hand. I would not want to do that on a road out in the sticks.

    A couple years back I noticed a couple of my bolts had sheered off and backed out on a knuckle while I was out bombing some logging roads. Calmest drive back, ever. haha. Ever since I've gone over board with locktite and torqued them exactly to what the book says and check them regularly.

    Did the timing belt and water pump service. Then went wheelin in Big Bear and smoked my clutch. I had just ordered my Marlin Crawler and thought I could get one more trip out of the old girl. At least it made it home...

    Finally got my extended airlift bags on today. I've been rocking the stock height ones for two years with the lift on....they've been crying for awhile now. With longer bags I should be able to level it out (taco lean) a bit more too.

    Eh, the GoPro is like a dslr camera. When you first get one you're really confused! But once you learn the settings, there are so many more options! Plus the GoPro brand has more stuff.
