Well, It was the aftermath of having a hotwire that wasn't fused melt to the floorboard of his jeep because the exaughst sits too close to the floorboard.

Melted the harness and switches that go to the ARB's




at least after the blast to the face, he got it out OK.

Re: Fire Extinguishers...

Remeber to shake those dry chems every now and again, so the valve don't stick open and keep going LONG after the fire is out.

I agree with that. I can also confirm that, the extinguisher riding around in the back of a Jeep does not constitute shaking "every now and then".

I never knew that only the dash was swapped on RHDs, I though that EVERYTHING was opposite. I just noticed the ugly stick and Ebrake are on the "normal" side.

I have wheeled with those guys on several occasions and it was the first time I ever noticed that the windshield wipers hinge on the wrong side of the jeep too. Thought that was kind of weird.
