Re: 2014 Jeep OEM Projected headlight to OEM HID headlight

Is he actively selling a harness? My understanding is he stopped doing that. If he isn't, I don't see why its an issue. I hope your harness works though.

Re: Hey, where's the "JEEP" on the hood???

mine was removed when I had PPF installed. Had the option of putting it back on, but I liked the clean look. Not to mention, one less area for pain in the pass cleaning.

what's holding up your rear fenders?

I went back and fixed my rear mud flaps today. When I was in an accident a year ago, the body shop did a piss poor job on it. Used wrong screws and bolts and such.

Yep, in my experience, as long as the cars are new and with low miles, you'll get new or "re-conditioned" OEM parts.

Yours doesn't look bad right now, but until the shop removes the bumper cover,...

Re: What's the verdict on LED headlight bulbs vs. HID?

Re: 2014 Jeep OEM Projected headlight to OEM HID headlight

If you guys really want, I'm sure the folks at The RetrofitSource will build a harness. They have one for the F150. I imagine it won't be cheap either. $2-300 easily.

Re: Jesus the gear oil is expensive

75w-85 appears to be the correct oil. They do have the old part number for the AFT+4.

The new part number for 75w-85 axle oil is 5136035AB.
The new part number for ATF+4 is 68218057AB.

Re: Jesus the gear oil is expensive

I figured if I'm doing the diff, might as well do the transfer case too. But the transfer case was pristine. Sure, slightly darker than fresh oil, but not much.

Re: visors

Now, that I know. Actually, what I find annoying is how easy it is to jump off the pivot clip. When I'm trying to open my visor, half the time, it pops out. Annoying iMO.

Re: >>XenonDepot Needs your 2015+ WK2 without HID lights

Looks like the website only goes back to 2014 for order history. It's no big deal. I think I'll just order a single ballast instead. Less than $60 shipped.

Re: how to change battery on keyfob?

Got it open. Just pry on the indentation you mentioned and popped open. Was a pain snapping it back together though.

Battery is a 2032 for those wondering. Now need to find one at the store.
