I liked that they had all the functions including reverse. I like mine too, just wish I had actually had the right tool haha. I may look into getting some backups like yours.

Your drop down is clean I love that mod.

I've got the same sliders and I'm happy with them, the quality of the welds and powder coat seems good. I've had them about a year and a half.
The bolts do mount flush...

Between break from classes, I took care of the surface rust on my door handles, and took off all the plasti dip in the rear flares, ready to spray on a nice coat after my last class, after going to Home Depot of course.

Thanks brother, I've enjoyed it.

I bought my 2" whites for the reverse from superbrightleds.com, but the grommets were crap and I couldn't find anywhere else that had 2", so I had to bring out the dremmel and customize them....I was kinda pissed about that. I haven't really checked them at night, but I doubt there gonna work that well, more for just legal show. I'm thinking about a work led on the back...but we'll see.

Happy with them so far. Bolts are flush, they were easy to install and I love the way the curve around the bottom of the door and Jeep logo.

6 cylinder. 98-06. Hard top. Bone stock. 97 would be okay but can be a pain sometimes.

If you get a rubicon I hate you out of jealousy. Good luck

Why do you need ABS? I don't have it, and personally I never wish I did. If you're used to driving a car with ABS, you just gotta remember you don't have it. If you get a rubicon, you can't have ABS (at least it's very rare).
