I just put on Ultras - love them. Had them on my 08 JKR. very cheap upgrade for brighter lights. Sylvania only warrants them for 1 year cause they are so bright.

I have a 2" budget boost and didn't notice much sag due to the lite bumper. Only added about 75lbs of weight from the winch. Rides good too on the stock springs. Taking it out tonite to test offroad. Great guys at LOD.

I have these bulbs. Put them in 2 days after I got the Jeep. They're def brighter than the stock, but don't compare to HID's. Had HID lights in my last 3 vehicles, bummer.

I just ordered a set of zXe headlamps from amazon for $37. For that price I'll give them a shot.

dont worry about the amazon thing. As long as you end up with H13 9008's, you'll be fine.

I did this once. And then while I was out driving in an "unauthorized" area, I realized my mistake. Think about it. The sound is great but it carries.

Waiting for my new tires and wheels to get put on. Excited. Then I saw them roll them out. 285/75/17 look muuuuuch bigger in person. Not gonna lie. Little nervous now.

My addition for today was somewhat more modest than the others here. I added running boards. They bolted right on in about 15 minutes.

Built a custom plate for my fairlead!

Slot on the bumper was too big for a normal fairlead, so I cut a custom plate out of 6.5 guage steel. That should hold nicely.

Keep your receipt & the package. Sylvania has a 12 month guarantee that few people know about although it says it on the back of the package. If they burn out Sylvania will replace them.
