Couple days ago I took off the top, put on my Duster and Windjammer, because the weather app on my Phone said it would be 70 degrees and Sunny all week. Guess what ended up happening today? 60% chance of heavy rain all day and wake up to it already sprinkling...into my Jeep with no top on. Gonna put the hardtop back on in a little bit...

4wheelparts had them 20% off.. my rear tire carrier has special holders built in to carry two rotopax.. I havent really used them yet, so cant say how much I will like them but will report back after I put some gas in them and empty them out.
BTW, where did you get your windshield banner?

You need to get hella e-code housing (or equivalent) because it has a defone cutoff. Then if you order an HID kit all you need to do is plug it all together and run a wire to the positive and then ground both lights. And then re-aim your lights ofcourse

IMO the most versatile upgrade for your jeep period.

Ebay kit is plug and play........i spent most of my time securing the bulbs to the rubber boots(may be tricky), the rest was pretty straight forward. PM me if you have any further questions.

I added LED backup/reverse lights. I lost them when I did the PSC Crusher Corner + Trailgate + LED Tail Light upgrades. The more extensive writeup is in the rebuild thread but here are a few picts.

Smittybilt XRC Classic Bumper with Tire Carrier

Cheap, Looks Nice, Has a Tire Carrier, Integrated Receiver ... did I mention cheap!

So far no real complaints. It rattles a bit on the big bumps but went wheeling with it and did great. Still need to drop my tank to get one of the installation points bolted down ... 5 out of 6 ain't bad

Congrats sir, you sold me when you said cheap. I need a bumper with a hitch on it, and would like to have a tire carrier this is the best deal I've seen yet!

WARNING: the hitch is not rated or recommended for towing use, it is for a recovery point only (or bike rack/luggage rack). Just FYI if you were unaware.

The hitch on an actual Smittybuilt SRC rear bumper is a class III hitch rated for up to 9k lbs. Not sure about the ebay versions and what have you.

Source:http://www.smittybilt.com/product/index/9.htm

Also checked with Qtec and jeepaddons.com before I towed with it. SRC was on my Jeep when I bought it.
