Today, I installed two ac vent s-pods stocked with q-tec switches. Put on some kc windshield hinge light mounts, and some cheap Tuff-Leds flood lights. Those things we completely worth it! The only issue is that they are a really tight fit with my roof rack. If FedEx ships on saturday, Ill have a light bar for the roof as well!

PS: for those as new to wiring as I am, the switches can hint at the problem... First I swapped a ground and lead on the switch, and blew fuses every time i turned the lights OFF, then I had the leads swapped and the switch's light was always on, as the power isn't ran through my ignition.

If they were shipped FedEx Ground Home Del. You may receive them on a Saturday. If not Tuesday may be the day as FedEx Ground Home Del delivers Tuesday - Saturdays to residences.

FedEx Express only delivers on Saturdays if the shipper paid for Sat Del Service.

FedEx Ground only delivers Mon - Friday.

If you have the tracking number plug it into FedEx.com/us and it will tell you the delivery date.

Tinted them myself. The side back ones did great because they don't move. The front ones got lines eventually from putting them up and down. Had to retint the front once.

I did however read where a guy used the static cling tint on his front windows. He still cut to fit and everything and didn't have any problems, but he didn't put his windows down ever. That's a better idea, because when it starts getting the lines from movement, all you have to do is pull off and reapply. Reapplying should only take a couple minutes.

Even though its still mostly stock. Lol

Prepaid the offroad shop for my parts to regear to 4.10's. Can't wait, since my stock 3.07's are wasted, and she is terrible "doggy" on the hills around here. Then 33x12.50's in near future....hopefully.

Where did you get tailgate, Quadratech, 4WD or junkyard? This is on my wish list. I really like the tailgate idea over the swing away. Are you going to keep your spare mounted on bumper? When and if I do the tailgate conversion, I don't know what I would do with the spare. I wouldn't want to cover up the stamped "JEEP"

I left last September to return to school and change careers. I'd rather machine stuff with big expensive tools than ship and make copies. I was at FedEx Office CHSKK.
