Hahaha. Yeah me too! Walmart $20 can't beat them. 2" 55watt driving lights. I put them in my rear bumper originally so I can back up and actually see where I'm going. And liked them so much I got a set for up front.

Here's them on

It was cheap, total cost around $20. I get allot of my steel at a scrap yard for cheap. Harbor Freight tube bender and Lincoln welder. I defiantly have a few hours invested. I got the idea from Over Kill Off-road, they make them for JK's

Sorry I do not, I went with the size of my bumper and just started laying everything out. I kept going back to Overkill Engineering site (Currently down) and looking at the pictures they had. You can see it here http://overkilleng.go2baja.net/image...s/IMG_0959.JPG

yours came out better than mine. cant decide one how to attach the grab handles. havent seen a shifter handle done. thats sweet.
