Looks sweet! Where did you get it? I have some ugly dents in mine. Everyone says they dont see anything but I can see them and that bothers me

Looks nice. I don't like the high mounting of the stock lite.
I was planning on doing something similar to mine. Wanted to find a hitch light shaped like a skull. It's just lit when running lights are on and flashes red eyes with the brakes.

in mine the fuel gauge is on the same circuit. so if i pull the fuse, i dont know how much gas i have. i just pull the bulb. that is the simplest.

I don't have doors on enough to use those But a very very nice addition. Interesting choice of button Location tho. I kinda like it. I know I've seen kits that make you remove the manual knob and you put the power one right in there.

well i had 2 switches, i didn't want to put 3-4 (2 driver's side, 1-2 passenger's) and but it's a big pain in the a$$ in wiring

also i have added connectors at each door so that i can still remove the doors, but i don't

Yeah. It makes it much more simple and general convenience having just two locally in the middle. And hey I won't hate for not taking the doors off. It's still a great mod. I know if I were to get a jk I'd get the power group even with taking doors off so much.

Put my tow hooks under the bumper, since they didn't fit with the raised winch plate. I had to drill and tap 1 hole, but I have solid recovery points 

That's a good Idea I had been wondering where I could relocate those!

gd idea, I'll be doing the same soon. does anyone have any idea what these holes are for?

Door surrounds bolt through them its for the factory soft top. If you only have a hard top you don't have to worry about plugging them up
