bigjeep, personally, I'd go with the Contura switches. If you get the style that matches the ARB locker switches, you get:

1. a light that operates with the dash lights at night.
2. a damn good switch
3. Pull the empty cover, pop in switch. DONE
4. Same 3 connectors are there, plus the 2 for the dash lights.
5. You can get covers in a few colors (red, blue, green, amber) to match your jeep nicely for a stock look.

If you time it right, you could even get the cover for the switch (actuator/flip/whatever) that has a label on it saying what it is for.

I'm just wondering what kind of moisturizer he's using.

Nothing straight on sideways, this is a little more of a side shot. I'll take one tonight when I get home and post it.

It's a knock off of the Smittybuilt SRC bumper. Got it on ebay, great seller. I painted it with a hammered finished black to match my rock sliders.

Unlimited, that is the bumper I'm going to buy also. Smittybuilt has been bought out by 4WP Wholesalers and is manufacturing the same SRC series under the Rugged Ridge name.

Ah, I didn't know that. You can still buy labeled "Smittybuilt" versions of the bumpers. All I can say is that the quality is the same between the brand names. I have a Smittybuilt SRC rear bumper and the Rugged Ridge front. The quality is very high and they seem to use quality steel. I bought some 100w lights today to mount on the bumper, I'll post pictures when they are painted and mounted.

Here's a side view as promised:

JC Whitney has the SRC front bumper for about $375.00. Quadratec is about the same price.

The man in the brown truck dropped some new toys for me to play with, 2" Skyjacker BB and Hydro shocks. Now I just need to get a jack and couple of stands to start working on it. I just wish I knew what I was doing.

The new wheels and tires should be here any day.

That's the one! Nice flames.

I'll let you know they work out. I hope to put them on this weekend. Which kit are you looking at?

I installed my full hydro truss and double ended ram. What a way to double the cost of your axle.
