Looks like I have a light show on that side of the dash...
Ebrake is it on a little? The switch might be bad

No and I have not touched the e-brake since the cold snap a week ago. Messed with it today and still on.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

If the ABS light is on too I would get a code scanner that does ABS and see what it says, there should be a code stored if the ABS is lit up. Had this on mine last year, code showed a bad wheel speed sensor. Cheap and easy fix.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

The ABS light comes and goes in the winter with slushy roads. Not sure which sensor it is. The "Brake" light is the one that concerns me. I am afraid the Master Cylinder needs replaced.

We were at the -20s during the night here and my coolant never froze.

You might consider going to one of the auto parts store and buying a antifreeze tester. They're pretty cheap and should tell you the mixture.
Yes I have I had a blown head gasket and completely replaced the entire cooling system. It alk was that 50/50 advanced auto brand. Straight from the jug to my jeep.

That's odd, maybe it's not a 50/50 mix....who knows.

Regardless, if I was you then I would get a tester and see if it needs water or antifreeze and add accordingly. Also, add straight to the radiator and not the reservoir so it will circulate and mix. Freezing coolant can completely destroy a motor or at least bust a freeze plug.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Been experimenting with a demon eyes retrofit with my old set of projector fogs. Still trying to decide on what color I wanna go with, definitely not blue or red lol. Here's a couple pics:

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

Tonight I plan on tearing out the RB1 and digging into it a little. Every so often I get a disc read error on my NAV. From poking around on the interweb, I'm thinking it's probably a filthy lens. Lord knows enough filthy things have happened in that ride...ahhahaha. If anyone has a step-by-step on lens cleaning, I'd love to see it. Otherwise I plan on winging it with some small screwdrivers, some alcohol, and a few Q-tips.

Re: What are you doing to your WJ next?

I would rather the disc read error
Than it losing it's code randomly so I now have to carry my sterio code with me and no it's not from disconnecting battery
Only good thing is it does not lose memory

Your head unit lost some kind of code when you did what I'm looking to do?
