It's a 50. I have been looking around for a couple 40mm cans but no luck yet.

I am new to this forum and switched from a cherokee to a new wrangler a few months ago...just installed a new front and rear bumper today...

Anyone know if aftermarket lights mounted on the bumper will accept the factory fog light plugs from the stock bumper? or will I have to wire in seperate?

Just replaced the distributor it had 226,000 miles on it and the bearings had gone up in it causing the rotor to drag and chew into 2 of the spark plug lugs and be too far away on the other 2




You can see all the metal shavings on the sensor



I hope this was the last thing I need to replace for a while...
I also hope the hesitation is gone... I only chalked it up to be hesitation do too misfiring we'll see

Was a xmas gift from my wife, I picked them out. Ordered from Quadratec. But a heads up,they are $130 and was a pain to install on the new JK. Mostly cause the passenger side lower bracket's nut was really hard to get too. But they look great, work great holding down the hood, and I really like them.

Tho my hesitation wasn't bad it was really annoying.

Sometimes you can and sometimes not compatible. But I have done it in the past and it will work. I'd used stock switches with aftermarket lighting on my Jeep.

Had a busy day with my jeep. Painted my dash and hood latches with spray on bed liner, installed a new stereo, and cut down my stock fenders to make them flat. Sorry no pics yet. I'll post em when I take some.

lookin good man! Ya Quadratec was having a deal with the new warn series winches from end of Dec. to the new year that if you bought any of the winches you got free lights with them, I couldn't pass it up on top of a $50 rebate for the winch and $20 for the lights!

Thanks, I must have missed the sale deal for the lights, or maybe at the time, I wasn't sure, can't remember, getting forgetful these days.

Smittybilt SRC....got the rear bumper on as well a few days ago. Advice, if you have never done ask someone to help you. Pretty heavy and akward trying to install yourself in your gravel driveway! Couldn't wait though.
Did get the D-Ring/Shackles today. Put a little black coating on them...to match the bumpers.
