chong Noticed the passenger side headlight was out on Friday night. Decided to go ahead and replace both headlight bulbs. Hoping that's the last repair I have to do as we head into winter.

Scoobie_newbie Put on my free set of junk yard special hub caps that I found at the transfer station.

Running a set of ancient 10 hole steel 16" wheels on my '15 Fozzie for winter. They don't look the best, but hey, I live in rural Vermont and it's winter and nobody really cares (including me). The hub caps make the wheels look a little nicer now (so I guess I do really care...LOL).

Rear WL SB

Installed a 22mm WhiteLine Rear Sway Bar with Moog heavy duty end links. Pretty straight forward install. Drove it locally on wet roads, feels a tad flatter with the rear end wanting to slide more. Looking forward to the next trip to the mtns to experience some higher speed turns.

seanbarg Finished my lighting conversion last night. At this point I have replaced everything but the fog light bulbs. These iPad pics are likely a little exaggerated but I'm worried the turn signals might be too bright and annoy other drivers.

-H9/9011 low/high headlight bulbs.
-Interior lights are 15 SMD LED panels (with smaller LEDs in the doors).
-Same 15 SMD panels were used for the license plate lights.
-Samsung 2835 15W LED turn signals and tail light bulbs. (with Flasher relay replacement)
-Cree LED Projector reverse lights.
-Parking/Side Marker lights are 5630 6 SMD LED bulbs which are very bright and give the front end a great look (note that no headlights were on in the pics, just these LEDs)

Overall I'm real pleased with how it all came out. And its easy to justify a lot of the bulb replacements for safety reasons.

Blue Fox Well, finally got the warranty debacle done with BFGoodrich. New set of 4 new BFGoodrich All-terrains for $308 installed. I still maintain that I shouldn't have had to pay anything for a defective tire with 2 others showing signs of the defect as well, but I was done being on the phone constantly.

Put on the new tires, re-installed the roof rack, re-installed the front light bar after needing to re-fit it and readjust the LED lights, and installed the sump guard which I'm releasing a video for here soon.
