    I opened my hood about a month ago and noticed some decent corrosion on my battery connectors.

    I wish I would have taken a picture.

    I attempted to clean them off, but I couldn't get it all off. Too many nooks and crannies in the OEM connectors.

    Someone in here recently replaced his connectors with these.

    I temporarily covered my old connectors in anti corrosion goop and ordered these replacements.

    I installed them today and hopefully I have no more issues. They look quite a bit nicer too.

    Those new ones look nice, I’ll definitely pick those up if mine show signs of corrosion. You made me go check, all looks good so far!

    Yeah, I'm not sure why there was corrosion in the first place.

    I have to take it in for 10k miles soon. I am going to ask if maybe the OEM battery sucks.

    Hope it’s not because of all your extra lights ;)

    Haha. I don't think so. I only run them when I am off roading at night. So like a few hours a month.

    I don't know a heck of a lot about batteries, but anything is possible.

    Haha.

    Scared myself the other day. My NSV light bar wasn't working.

    Looked under the hood, and sure enough. I forgot to hook up the wire when I redid the battery connector.

    Oops.

    All is well, nothing to see here.

    Looks great! Who in Boise did your install? I'm having a hell of a time finding a shop to do mine.

    Small upgrade today.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B071NJ4FB7?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

    I almost didn't get one of these, but I hate having any PC on my truck to get stopped.

    I'm not worried about getting cited. I just think after stopping hundreds of vehicles in my time for the same violation, it would be hypocritical of me to not to do my best to keep her legal. I don't think I ever cited anyone for it, but I caught a lot of drunks that way.

    I doubt any local guys would even care, but I do.

    Installed an ARB rear differential breather today.

    Cheap upgrade for some piece of mind.

    My son wanted some snow, so we found some snow.

    Picked up a 40w Midland Radio, 6db antenna, a Rago Fabrication bed rail antenna mount, and Midland 6 meter antenna cable.

    Will come in handy when with groups so I know what's going on when the convoy stops.

    I wired it up to the accessory fuse so that it automatically turns off when the truck does.

    Went up to Squaw Butte. Except for some snow ruts, it was a pretty smooth drive.
