That's how my buddy has his setup. The glare is really not that bad

They NEED to be spots up there, to keep down glare... But I would upgrade headlights before adding more auxillary ones... The stock sealed beams SUCK....

Picked up a couple of cheap Canadian Tire bike mirrors today. Getting prepared for doorless weather!

Yesterday I bought a 'white box' TRE for the Suburban at NAPA.  $20.  $90 for a lifetime warranty one.  But I don't drive it that much and I intend to change the steering anyway,,,,,,,,,,,,,, we'll see if I can get a few months out of $20.

Derek now has a couple of usable trail spare TREs, as long as he keeps the stock tie rod in it. They were in the crate of stuff I got from Brandon last fall with the tow hooks. They were of no use to me since I am using a v8 ZJ tie rod and end...

Thanks again!  I will eventually get a ZJ tie rod, but until then, I'm happy to have the spares!

The lug nuts on the Jeep are pretty trashed, and I'm not sure how many removal/installs some of them have left.  I picked up two sets of the McGard 64010 (CT only had two sets in stock) lug nuts.  They are guaranteed for life, and the reviews for them seem great.  They are a bit more costly at $9.99 for four, but if they last even twice as long as the cheap ones, they'll have paid for themselves.

I run McGard on everything over the years.  For the Scout, the chromes on it were rusted, (standard stud size), I bought a ' combo package', lug nuts and locks, was about 10% cheaper in the end.

It's better to pay a bit extra for those. I got some for our matrix from Napa . they were like 75 cents or a buck each and they rusted instantly.

Drop a cheap Dana 60 in it, then the markets open up. Price is still an issue :)

Thought about it.   Depends on budget when I finally do it. But probably unlikely.
