How easy was it to install the light pods? I just ordered then for my Olympic 4x4 bumper. Do you need to remove the bumper or bolt them into the bumper at all?

Why does it look like the rear tire sits more to the front than it did before the lift?

With my rubicon express 3.5", 4wheelparts recommended adding a 3/4 spacers on the front to even it out. I'm glad I listened. Nice build keep it up.
