    Did the fog light anytime mod, did it the easy way. In the process I found out that one of my $5 Amazon foglight bulbs had burned out, glad I kept the stock bulbs.

    Moved my ultraguage from the suction cup mount on the windshield to the dash using a piece of flexible metal and 3m tape that came with an iphone holder I no longer use.

    Went on a trip to Potts on saturday with the Sinking Creek 4 Wheel Drive Association (4x4 club at Virginia Tech). It was wet and slick and I had to get winched a few times but it was a good time and I got to test out my new sliders and tires. I learned that I really need skids so thats the next mod on the list, I destroyed the paper thin factory skid.

    Had a whine from the engine for about half a year now, changed serpentine belt and it didn't go away. The other day it got worse and after some inspecting, i found out i had some bad idler pulleys. Changed the top 2 pulleys and the whine is gone! :thumbsup:

    Going on a trip to an offroad park in Harlan this weekend with the offroad club from my school. Should be pretty nice with a bunch of different trails to explore.
