Oh ya! It's a 30 degree spot beam.
The rigid industries bars are actually pencil beams (10 degrees) and (20 degree) floods on the combo bar. So for the premium, it would be nuts bright!

Put on new rubber 31s BFG AT w spare, installed a full center console. Two weeks she's getting a lift. Feels good not to be stock.

Wasn't to bad, except one of the factory bolts in the motor mount was really hard to get out, almost like it was cross threaded and was even hard for the new one to get back in. I didn't mess with it until yesterday after work, finally got it, all done now.

Bought some Bestop half doors off Craigslist last night. I'm freakin' STOKED! $100 and I'm ready for summer. (I should probably clarify that my wife refuses to ride with the doors off. These are the best compromise I can come up with...)

Side note, has anyone wired a bypass switch for fuse #4 that fits in the center console next to the O/D Off switch? Everything I've seen has the switch under the dash or in the glove box.

Saw this 5 minutes after I posted my question. I've been looking all over for someone who'd done it. That's a nice hack. Like the garage door opener too.

Re: What I did to my TJ today

Just ordered a new Warn rock crawler bumper and M8000 winch, and spiderweb shade.

Well 7.5 hours later I finally got my Body Lift and Motor Mount Lift installed. It took longer than I anticipated. The drive side Motor Mount was a pretty big PITA. Remind me never to do a project like this on a week night again. I started at 4:30 and finished just before midnight. I am very happy with the result however.





Even got the wife to help out!

No at all! Just used my ratchet and unscrewed the three screws on each of them, and they came right out. I contiplated leaving them off but I didn't want to deal with covering the holes. LOL

New Diehard Platinum Battery installed and ordered a 12" LED light bar to mount on the hood. (Thanks Jeepaddons-Chris!) Will post pictures when it comes in and is installed.

Now off to prep and paint my hood.

Can you just wash them and spray the Berliner on or do you have to scratch up the surface some first? It's next on my list as soon as I get mine out of the shop. Do you just a can of Bed liner at Walmart or lowes?
