I bought those same lights and have yet to install them. Your's look great so I already feel better about my purchase lol. I like the way you installed them without the 4-1/2" bit, I got suckered into buying it.

What did I do to my tj today? I drove it through the ghetto of Cleveland where I was saddened to see a green TJ on these 20" wheels with low profiles. My tj cried a little.

With the help of my son, I installed my birthday present. A pair of Poison Spyder Defenders with 3" flares.

Haha that was my dads idea. Much better than spending more on the bit than the lights. Although you could trough it up on the forum in your local section and see if other jeepers near you could use it.


Are those defenders weld on?

I'm honestly not sure, I got all 5 rims and tires locally for close to $1600. I think they were close to $125 each though

I installed my nephews car seat, put the top down, and me, mom, dad, and my little buddy did about 75 miles off trails today in the area. Been playing out here for 2 years now and I found new trails today.

Yeah, they were expensive, which didn't make the wife too happy. They were probably fine, but I worried in the daytime with a real bright sun and the jeep being dirty that they just didn't work good enough.

I live off a highly traveled two lane road with no turn lane and speed limit about 55 mph, and i never felt real safe on their visibility. I like the ones you installed....clean.

It doesn't look like you have hinges. How does your tailgate open? Or does it.
