Just fishing for a ballpark estimate of what it will take once I get the thing to make it look this nice, but about what did you spend in total for the two bumpers, wheels & tires, lift, etc?

I estimate around $9,800 retail, including my uninstalled suspension but I did not spend anything close to that. Also keep in mind the TeraFlex PreRunner suspension runs about $5,000 shipped

That is a drop-dead gorgeous rig... it seems that everybody is waiting to put their suspensions on... I can't wait until I get mine welded up!

I was wondering on this aswell.
As cool as it would be to have white LED front lights, turn signals, specifically amber ones, may be kind of important to have somewhere on there.
And keeps you legal, and keeps you and every other driver on the road around you safe. It is an easy way to never have to meet me.

That's why I am not driving the Jeep right now... I have been riding my motorcycle since it hasn't been raining. I have a great idea for them but the company that I normally buy all my LEDs from doesn't have what I need in stock. I have motorcycle signals which are easy to mount anywhere but I want to do them nice and clean.
