The first item I bought was a JCR mid-width pre-runner front bumper. Cause I couldn't stand the bulky plastic crap.

And just recently this week I got around to ordering a teraflex leveling kit which will suffice till I get their 3" coil lift and some 35s when I have money.

And I also ordered rigid industries 10" e-series light bar but Dave at northridge4x4 gave me a call today and insisted I change my order to the 10" sr specter light bar. After he explained that he runs them on all their rigs and have a 1000 more lumens than the E-series. So I went with his advice and ordered the SR Specter. And I'll def order from northridge4x4 again cause of their great service.

I'm gonna mount on the bull bar. But I haven't decided if I should put it above or below it.

Thank you! Researched over a month and stumbled upon JCR and loved the bumper.

If no winch, above would get my vote.

Yeah I'm winchless right now lolol. And that was my second option cause the winch space would conceal the wires instead of running them straight through the grill.

These lights are pretty dang bright. Lights up a good 70+ yards down trail and a very nice wide light. Didn't take any install pics sorry. But I ran the switch wire through the driver side fire where there already is a hole. Poped the side dash panel and installed the switch above the speaker. It was just plug and play so messing with connecting wires. Just wish they made the ground and power wire longer. But in all a great light. Worth the money

Yet again no install photos except this one. Sorry. Front was simple not hard at all took like 20 mins. The rear was a little bit of a challenge. The axle just drops enough to get the spring out and unable to put back in with the one inch spacer. So after unbolting the brake line and abs and axle breather we decided to unbolt the track bar to see if it would drop more. But it only gave like 1/4 inch. But was just enough to muscle the spring on.
