  1. My condolences. Having lost a parent, I can tell you that it doesn't get better but it does get easier. Hang in there and remember the good times. That's what will get you through. Also, don't forget you are not alone and don't forget to ask for help or someone to talk to. Don't hold it in. It took me a while to figure that out. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
  2. The Halo Headlights have a LED ring around the main headlight.
  3. I remember reading somewhere about the truck sometimes see the high idle kicking in as a runaway and kills the engine to protect its self. I don't remember why this happens. Not sure if it has something to do with using factory high idle and the quad high idle... Hopefully someone else remembers and will chime in for ya...
  4. yeah. You want the LEDs on the left and right. It was worth a shot...
  5. Is there a way to "clock" those LED bulbs so the LEDs are on each side of the bulb in an attempt to spread the light horizontally and not vertically. With that much reflector in the housing though I don't know how much that will help but its worth a try if you can.
  6. I had the same issue on my truck after upgrading my lights to retroshop lights. I had to swap the pins around in the socket for the headlight plug. What I did was pulled all 3 pins out of the plug (headlight side, not the truck side) and plug them into the other socket and turn on lights and see, repeat till the headlights act as they should. Do a quick Google or YouTube search on the subject. Lots of articles and videos out there to help you out. Has something to do with the difference between 9004 and 9007 sockets.
  7. Got some more pics after checking the adjustment. This is the low beam at 25 feet.
  8. As promised, some pics of the new lights. Low beam High beam I wished I would have gotten some pics of the original lights before installing these so you could see the difference. The pattern is the same but these are so much brighter/whiter.
  9. What sticks out to me is a 0.0 for engine load. It shouldn't be 0, there should be some reading at idle . Also your throttle position is reading 9.8%. If this is at idle then your throttle position should be 0% Not sure what those readings mean. Could be just your reader or could be real issues (injectors, TPS, or ?). Hopefully someone more educated on these things will chime in.
  10. My . I am not a professional but if I was doing this I would put caulking in there for more water-proofing. I'd be afraid of water seeping through the grout and tub seam. I'd think caulking would seal better there. Like I said though, I'm no professional so use that info at your own risk...
  11. I drove my wife's Jeep JK after getting new lights for my truck and I realized that her Jeep was in desperate need of some new headlights also. I did some searching online for some good headlights. She said she wanted some Halo Headlights but I just couldn't bring myself to get those (**shudder**). I found a good review on these lights on Headlight Revolution. They mimic the same light pattern as the OEM style but a lot brighter. I took it out for a drive last night after installing them and they are really good. Night and day difference . The OEM halogens are more yellow and get washed out a lot by others coming at me especially in wet conditions (and that's 90% of the time here). Now I have no problem seeing the road lines during wet conditions with on coming traffic. I did have to "clock" the bulbs so the LEDs were on the left and right when locked into position in the housing. They supply a small allen wrench for doing this and even tell you in the install instructions to do this to have the correct light pattern. Other than that it was all just plug and play. Unfortunately I forgot my phone last night so I have no pictures but will get some next time I am able to take her Jeep out. I also bought LEDs for the fog lights that I have yet to install and LEDs for both dome lights inside, which I did install. They really brighten the inside of the Jeep when on.
  12. Thanks, I'll take a look. I didn't see an adjustment for the lights but @Mopar1973Man filled me in. If you can swing the extra money for them then I highly suggest getting them. You won't be disappointed.
  13. I was able to get the plug re-pinned and now my high/low is correct. Just got back from a drive and the new lights are AMAZING! Nice cut-off line and it looks to be aligned correctly and since I don't see a way to adjust them, I hope they are correct. Here's some pics. Low beams. Nice and wide. No critters are sneaking up on me now... High beam (aka Insta-daylight) Low beam High beam If you are on the fence about these lights, I highly suggest them. They are on the expensive side but so far, they are worth every penny. Just my Hey @Mopar1973Man did you get your ballasts and other things for these tidied up? I just have them zip-tied for now till I can find a good permanent home for them. Now I need some new fog lights. I turned them on while driving and you couldn't even see them with these.
