I didn't see anything about how to actually wire it. Am I missing something.

Wired in like every other LED set out there. On the back of the housing it tells you what wire is what. Use tail and turn, make your own ground.

I see. I'm just a noob with electrical. Never learned how to mess with that stuff. And I I don't have leds on my jeep currently either.

This is hardly exciting but I figured I would post it anyway since I like seeing free solutions... I got tired of my cb coax just being run over the tub and decided I wanted to install a rubber grommet for it to run through. While I was having my tires rotated the other day I saw some old valve stems that had been chopped off in the parking lot, they looked like they would work so I decided to give it a whirl as a grommet. Drilled out the center large enough for the cable to fit through and drilled a hole in the jeep large enough to get the valve stem through. Works pretty well actually and looks much better.

Another way to run the coax is through the grommet in the corner of the tub where the brake light wires go.

Not much of a mod-but if you have a trailer hitch or tow bar that uses the 5/8" dia pins-buy the cheap steel $3.00 pins that have one end bent and the other end a hole for a hair pin clip. Drill that hole out to 17/64" (slightly over 1/4"), then slightly touch a 1/2" bit to break the edges. Then purchase a four pack of small brass master locks with the 1/4" shanks. Now you can put a padlock through the hole where the hairpin clip went-but nobody can (easily) steal your trailer ball/reciever and or your tow bar without cutting the locks off. plus (1) key fits all (4) locks. Use the 4th lock for the hitch lever/latch on the tow bar.

I'm in the process of running coax to my CB right now .I was going to go that route, but it needed a large amount of slack to allow for the tailgate opening. I ended up using zip tie mounts and ran it along the upper hinge and then through a grommet in the tub.

I need to go out and finish routing it on the inside and solder the connector on the end. The temp finally dropped below 100, so it's time to get back to work

Just added my "doorless" mirrors. Found a pair of old motorcycle mirrors at a junkyard ($10), along with a couple of these cool yoke ends I found at a hardware store.

Tapped them out to the mirror thread, and ran a bolt thru the bottom of the door hinge. Presto! Easy-off mirrors.

I may paint them black to match the other add ons.

Definitely creative, but wouldn't that make it a little awkward when shifting?

Love the look and idea but I have to agree does not look very functional. Maybe if you could put it on at a 90║, to the passenger side. But "what a girl wants, What a girl needs Whatever makes me happy sets you free*And I'm thanking you for knowing exactly*What a girl wants,*What a girl needs*Whatever keeps me in your arms*And I'm thanking you for giving it to me,Yeah Yeah" sorry thought I was Christina Aguilera for a sec
