SuperbrightLEDs is where I got mine. They have anywhere from 30° to 360° bulbs.

So many threads on this subject.

Replaced the rubber exhaust hangers and replaced the ujoints on the rear drive shaft. Amazing how much quieter the ride is now.

And, now more mysterious metallic tink or tick from the drive train. I am pretty sure the old ujoints were the originals. I guess after 23 years they've done their job.

Drilled drain holes behind the driver and passenger seat. I park on a slight hill and the water all sits on one side if I don't put my trail cover on.

Hooked the CDN m101 up and hauled some mulch and carried propane tanks to be filled to cook out today for the Holiday. My Dad gets his flowers planted on his grave with this setup.[IMG][/IMG]

Installed new padded rollcage covers. Only the bars over the drivers and passengers heads were covered before.

Installed a few grab handles.

Here's a picture:
What size tires and wheels do you have on there? Looks sharp.

Just picked up my Jeep with a completely new exhaust from manifold to tail pipe with a Magna Flow muffler! Sounds great with a nice deep rumble.

No more head pipe bumping against the front drive shaft! Woo hoo!
