AAAAARRRRRGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spent the whole evening chasing electrical problems with the headlights. Tried all kinds of stuff.

Nothing but a bad ground behind the ECM. I'm soooo mad at myself for not checking that first...

Such is life. At least I get off at noon tomorrow!

I feel for you man. Glad you got it fixxed though.

I had a very simular situation recently. My friend and I had been working on fabing up my new motor mount adapter plates, and re-installing the motor for about 20 hrs straight, and when I got in to crank it up and drive it home (at 4 a.m.), all the lights where super dim. So, we checked every ground possible on the motor and chassis. In the end the problem was the driver side ground mounted to side of the engine compartment near the fire wall. :x It was very frustrating!

Nice!! If you want or need an ISUZU badge for the grill let me know, I've got a bunch and I think I've got one for that year Amigo that I could send you.

Brad, I got it inspected a week ago. The winch is on its way here. I need to make some kind of rocker panel protection before I hit a rock.... Will post more pics later today if I can.
