I am in the same boat, but with my blinkers. Haven't delved into it yet but my first try will be led resistors. The resistor is the cheaper fix but if that doesn't work for you, you may have to do a harness like this.

After reading the description on this, sounds like this would fix John Doe's issue.

I might just go that route, but 1st I'll look into upping the fuse, and or Relay in the current system.

Damn!  good re-read.     I need to finish my swap!   that sticker is sexy.

question for ya- Im slipping an FJ80 axle under an IFS mini.   When you used the Ruffstuff fj60 front perches, did you have to rotate the knuckles?   Im trying to just cut off IFS, slap some springs under it, weld on some perches, and go!  (with FROR hysteer)

what side are you running the exhaust? Any pictures?
Back from the dead.......

After working out many little annoying issues I finally got my sticker


1 of my issues was an exhaust leak between the cat and rear O2 that prevented the Cat monitor from picking up, which was required by the Referee.


Now that my Engine swap has been approved I can get to work on my long laundry list of other projects that have been put on hold. I will be slowly working on some post worthy and some not so post worthy projects as time permits. As I make progress I will make sure to post up and share with all who are interested.

Back from the dead indeed!!!!

To answer your question, my exhaust is on the drivers side. Not much in the way of pictures. I'll look into more pics, no promises though.

A brief update.....

Last summer I installed my 4Wheel underground 3 link in the front, on the maiden voyage I ripped the upper link off the top of the pumpkin. My buddy did not do the best job getting it welded up. Got things put together and made the Round Up. Coming down Cadillac hill my engine rocked (normal engine movement) and the upper water pipe broke into 4 pieces against my shock hoop bridge. Luckily a Canadian who could weld aluminum was there and got it fixed up for me.

Was working my ass off and did not do any other wheeling until this years Round Up, only issue was a broken rear shock. Got back almost to staging and noticed my rear passenger shock was missing the shaft, and axle side mount.................... Guess it is time to install some rear bump stops  :smack:
