Thanks for the warning. I may have to look around for wide angle, single LED bulbs to diffuse the light a little more.

I just ran the cord up and over to the battery and zip tied it out of the way. Hooks to the battery like jumper cables, just hit the switch when I need it.

How long did it take you to do this and how hard was it? I've got a pair of 1.75s that I need to put on the front, just haven't had the time.

I use this write up http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tera...urs-99763.html

it took me longer than 2 hours but I cleaned all the dirt and rust flakes out of frame as well. The front is easier than the back

Took my kid out in it so he could practice for his driving test. Didn't want to waste the perma-grin, so then we went to the shooting range. I love being a Dad, especially on days like this!
