    When using it, I found that you need to feel when the nutsert is correctly set. After compressing the nutsert the first time, I screw the tool deeper on the nutsert and compress it a second time until it feels tight. If you go too far it will deform the bottom of the nutsert. If you do not tighten it enough it will spin. After setting the nutsert, I go back with a tap and chase the threads, then use anti-seize on the bolts to ensure they do not seize over time.
    I actually have a nutsert tool on the way.
    Curious on how your running the antenna cable, with the corners.

    I intend on using the flange provided on the corner. They have them incorporated at the top corner of either side.

    Do they have a spot to run the cable? Or is there enough gap to get it between the body and the armor?
    Just trying to get an idea on how to reroute my cable to the corner.

    No, I intend on drilling a hole and running the cable through a grommet.

    Also if you don't wanna cut wire or worry about resistor, poison spyder make a tail light harness. Don't remeber the exact price but it was plug and play with the Maxxiam lights and it has the resistor built in the harness.

    Are the resistors needed for the Maxxima's to make them work or prevent flicker? I left a set of 50W 6ohm resistors in my amazon cart just in case.

    Resistors are built into the maxximas wiring harness. They are needed to prevent a "ultra fast blinker" on the tail lights when using the turn signal. This is why all LED tail lights need a resistor of some type.


    Edit: the wiring harness is to be purchased separate from the maxxima taillights.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
