Rims and TPMS sensors came in today. Time to get the tire mounted and see if they fit with no lift, if not, I guess I need to wait longer to till I get my lift done.

Added a fire extinguisher [Kidde FA110] to my gear in back. It has overall great reviews on Amazon. I have some reservations about it, given the amount of plastic parts on it. But the positive reviews coupled with the price made me give it the green light. I've never once had the need for a fire extinguisher in the vehicle, so it's not a monumental concern for me. Just some added insurance and a bump up in my level of preparedness.

It's being held in the OneTigris MOLLE water bottle pouch. It fits well, although I knew when I bought it the pouch is a few inches shorter than I'd like it to be. I'm going to ditch the drawstring, and sew a couple of velcro or buckled straps to go over the neck of the bottle. This should keep it more secure and also still be quickly accesible. The molle attachment straps fit snugly around the CMS bar. It also just baaaaarely fits alongside the other bag and pouch I already have there. Overall I'm pleased with the purchases.

As I type this, my Uconnect is updating. I leave the car for two minutes, and then I got the notice to update. So now I'm patiently waiting for it to finish up. I can stay out in the field for an additional few minutes. 😉

1. Full detail this morning by yours truly -- I think paying someone else to clean your car is less rewarding, strangely.

2. Bought a 12v air compressor from AutoZone -- planning on running some dunes sometime this summer, and wanted to make it easier to add air back to the tires.

3. Picked up a digital tire pressure gauge.

4. Re-badged -- replaced red Trail Rated badges with custom orange to match the engine cover. Left the TH badge off for now, but I also have a matching orange one of those as well. Still debating whether to put it on.

Vehicle of my dreams? Hmm ... always stay skeptical, but enjoy what you've got while you've got it.

Finally did a mod I've been needing for a long time now: I upgraded my ugly, poor-performing factory halogens to a set of 5000k HIDs from @XenonDepot. Thanks to @ptrudel for his installation guide. It would have taken me HOURS longer to figure it all out myself. Installation had a few minor hiccups but I got it all sorted in the end. So far they look great! I can't wait until nighttime to see how they look on the road. For now all I have are some photos from inside my garage.

Didn't have to adjust the tilt at all, it matched perfectly what it was already set at. I'll see if I need to tune it after driving at night for a bit.

Before and after. I wasn't sure how best to white balance these photos to make an apples to apples comparison. These were all taken with white balance set at 5000k. I think it makes the yellow look more yellow than it really is (in one photo), maybe I should have set WB to match the temp of the subject bulb in each? In any case, they certainly look a lot brighter! I used all the same photo settings, so no Auto mode to screw up the comparison. 5000k WB, 500 ISO, 1/125s shutter.

Very similar to my results with the 4300K package from XD. Truly a 'night and day' difference driving at night. Even side lighting is somewhat improved.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Finally got around to making up a mount for the fire extinguisher to sit under the front of the drivers seat. Not in the way and easy to grab if needed. Bracket secures around the square metal bar under the seat (so it can't fly forward in a crash) and front simply sits under the Trailhawk factory floor mats.

This isn't my KL, but someone on a TH Facebook Group group posted this. Reminds me of the Trans Am I had as a teenager.

"Thunderhawke," he calls it.
