I wish mine were the d2s but the duallys should be ok. I would get the 50, but im doing locker, Regear, and 37s this summer so more lighting will have to wait. Pkus with all those lights I will already be able to light up the darkest corner of hell. Lol

Wow. Got the Truck lite LED Headlights installed and what a tremendous difference over the Delta's these things are super bright and look nice too. I didn't take comparison shots as it was 20 degrees outside and I was working in low light so it took me an hour and I was frozen, but they look great. I also did the led interior light swap from northridge and the difference is insane. I can actually see everything inside now at night and not have to use a maglite. I will get pics of all posted soon.

Ok Should be getting 37 Mtr's next weekish. I'm excited. Will be sleeve and gusseting the Dana 30 at some point in the next month or so. Evaluating kits to do that now. Also will be installing the rigid lights within the next 2 weeks I hope. My friend is gonna teach me how to wire lights. Should be a lot of fun.

Yes we cut them while they were still on. They looked cheesy to me. I like the clean look of the new ones.

Well no Dana 44 but I pick up my new 37s next week. Pics to come of that. Also wiring up my led lights next week I hope. Sleeve and gusseting the front Dana 30 soon. And probably putting a teraflex flex arm kit on it with bigger coils. I'll let everyone know.

Found a front Dana 44 Dynatrac Prorock. Pretty sure I'm getting this one. Hopefully will be able to pick it up next week and put it on in the next month. Super Psyched!!

K so I'm getting the ProRock44 with an OX locker with electronic actuator. This is gonna be awesome. I wasn't really gonna lock my Jeep for another year, but I guess I'm gonna lock it sooner. I'll lock the front first out of necessity and lock the rear in a few months. I'll only regear to the rubicon 4.11's for the time being again out of necessity and I'll contemplate future regear for later on.

K so I picked up my new 37 Goodyear Mtr Kevlars, mounted on 2013 rubicon rims. Installed Spidertrax wheel spacers for backspacing. We also put on a Teraflex HD diff cover as the stock one was bent and was oozing a very small amount of fluid. Pics below

Love those new tires...

looks nice, sweet build up. I have the same flares and tires, just a bit smaller tire size though. I don't like the bushwacker flares on mine, I wish they where metal...

Thanks. I love them on mine. Yes plastic looks cheaper but they are factory quality and are cheaper to pelace if broken and usually cause less damage then metal flares.

Well I dropped her off this morning. It was very sad to leave her. I'm excited, but now the true test of waiting begins. Sigh... Next Tuesday won't come soon enough!

Chris, I saw in another post you said the The Edge Automotive is doing the work. I am not finding them with internet searches. Where are they located? I like to file away shops that understand modded jeeps for any possible future reference.
