Had anyone made their own headlamp halo lights? Like this? But I like my lamps already I want to put a red glow around the lamps.. How and what type of LEDs should I use? And hot glue them around the lamp? Or get the flat LEDs and adhesive them on around the lamp?

I'd buy the 25$ led strips from.auto zone they come in any color and.just stick them around and probably wire them into running lights, but I'd check local.laws cause u can't have red lights or anything up front, good.luck for sure.post picks.when Ur done I'd love to see how they turn out

I'll switch them. But should I face the LEDs. Like the large ones pointed out? To the front or lay down the flat adhesive sets around the lamps?

Ok well I used, I think, 6-8 cans. I do not have a hardtop but have seen others use it on one. As for the weight go and buy the paint and on the ride home with it in the jeep see if you can tell if it affects the way the jeep drives.

So far the bed liner looks good! And I think the xenon delta headlamps are the best. I have them and they are extremely bright with a little blue tint to it.

Here's one! Custom Grill Inserts!!! Super cheap too...here's what it took:
1. Piece of rain gutter cage - $3.00
2. 4" zipties - $2.00
3. Black Spray paint - (had on hand so $0.00)

Of course I bought the plastic rugged ridge frames for the grill for about $50, but the mod was definitely worth it! Keeps out the leaves and looks pretty good if I can say so myself....
