As far as output goes - these are as bright as legally allowed by FDOT and are DOT approved. The be pattern, optics and spread are far superior to what's on theater currently this is a major factor why this company waited - so they could see what was out there and make it superior. This company is the leader in off road lighting and has been for many years the quality and durability is literally unmatched.
Want them.

Ok, as for a theme for my Jeep I am going with the old style Olive Drab. I couldn't get that as a color as black was the only option left for the 2011 year, 70th anniversary.
I swapped out the from bumper with the quad hoop, winch and 2 pair of lights. One set are the fog and the other set is general. The fog lights use the OEM switch and the other is 1 of 2 lighted switches near my steering wheel. I removed the OEM side steps and installed the retractable ones as my wife is a little lady.
I have the OD seat covers and the Mole bags and a lot of pouches from my years of service. I used one 3 compartment bag as a first aid kit. It has just about everything a person would need in the field. Kind of a poor mans surgical kit. I made a flash light holder for next to my seat, easy to grab and is an LED light. The hood has the small scoop for cabin air intake. I have the LED brake lights for the spare tire and the hitch has the lighted skull. I also have a pintle hook for days that I need to tow my 75 mm anti tank gun. I made a sticker of the 5" naval gun mount I worked on, it matches my plate number, the Mark-42 gun. That was the last of the manned naval shipboard gun. I have a WW2 tool box with some of the same era tools inside it. All the tools I carry are painted Olive Drab along with my fire extinguisher, shovel, ect, ect.. I do carry some tools that are normal, but they are in the mole bags on the tail gate. I carry recovery tools and straps in a musket bag along with a wireless remote for the winch. The remote was a $10 harbor freight special, I just rewired the connection plug.. I found a scope sighting sticker and placed it at the lower drivers side window, makes traffic targeting easy for Zombies.

Lastly, I have a trailer that I hope to buy a tub for, the Batan style that a JK member is selling kits for..
If not ill build a scaled down front of a navy fast frigate and have a semi-operational gun mount.. I'll then tow it in parades and fire off blanks..

Bought a Teraflex Leveling kit as a temporary solution to eliminate rake until Metalcloak comes out with the 2.5"/I can scrounge up enough money for it. Also ordered two more High Pole Stands for use with the rotary lift at the shop.

I thought I could handle it, but it has been bothering me so bad, I decided to drop the $130.

Got a 2012 JKU too but no problems so far with the check engine light. I did, however, had a total battery failure today. Got no idea what the problem was with that.

Anyone else experienced this?

I had issues with an o2 leak. After multiple checks they found that the filler neck on the gas tank had a crack in it. Less the 10k on the jeep

You know what, I really noticed that also. Once I took it off, it felt like it was not struggling to get through the wind anymore. The noise, I can deal with for now as the freedom panels are gonna on pretty soon anyways.
