who makes the light bar? Also, brand and series are your tires? Like them both, nice job. Interested to see how it looks when you do the stubby conversion.

I was just thinking how that setup would look really good stubby-ed up!

I think that's where I'm headed as well with mine, too.

Beautiful Jeep!

Going with the VDP or the Rough Country end caps? Or are you going to reuse the cut portion of the stocker?

I didn't. I covered the wires in split-loom tubing and zip tied them to the back of the bar. It ended up looking better than I thought it would, so I left it.
I was kind of surprised there were not pre-drilled holes, though.

I too would like to see this with chopped end caps and a winch... I want to see the chopped look, but I'm not sure there's enough room for most winches??? If you know, please confirm.

As far as end caps, does the VDP or Rough Country match the stock finish better? I would like to do this mod, but I don't want the caps to look like caps. I want a factory type finish if I can get it.

By the way, I like the chrome wheels. I like black, but everybody is running them. Just getting a little tired of it.
