lol wtf

i dont have a better idea of what to name this thread.

i walk out to my truck a bit ago, and i see that the hella's mounted on the front are on. im like ???

okay, maybe i hit the switch with my knee or something on the way out of the truck, its to the left of the steering wheel, down a little bit though.

well, i check the switch, and it was in the OFF position.

idk what the deal is, they were off by the time i started the truck and went and looked again to see if they were on.

i took the relay out for now, so they aren't getting any power.

Were you three drinking? I'd replace the relay first and go from there.

You need to set a trap up for the Gnomes so they don't get anybody elses truck. Then replace the relay.

Good call! Everyone else blames Bush for their problems and the country's problems, maybe he should jump on the bandwagon!

maybe your lights just aren't getting enough exercise, so they light themselves every now and then... you know just to keep the juices flowing.

My boss had his jeep in the shop the other day (imagine that... i wouldnt understand) And we were talking about his KC daylighters (that i gave him off my ranger when i got rid of it)

And all of the sudden they turned on... just sitting there talking about them and they turned on... freaked us out... his relay had water in it... shorted out...
