2003 Jeep Rubi addons - PICS PICS

Over the past 3 weeks I've been working on my Rubi. I added the following:

4 Hella 5500 lights on top
2 Hella 5500 on bumper
relocated 2 stock lights to point outside of normal field of vision
added front/rea bumpers
added 2 Hella back up lights (within new bumper)

added cold air intake
throttle body
flashed ECU
Spintech "small" muffler

A note on the "performance" upgrades - I know, I know....it has been said many times that "performance" upgrades are a waste of money....therefore I offer my personal "real world" experience. Going up a large hill by my house, before performance mods I could get a a certain place on the hill (about 1000 feet up the hill) in 3rd gear and top speed was 40 MPH. Now, same hill, I reach the predefined place in 4th gear at 46 mph. Before if I shifted into 4th, the engine did not have enough poop to hold the 4th gear....no it does.

Anyway, here are pics.

Sweet add on's, I like the fact you took your jeep out to take the pics and not just snap them in the driveway.

Well, I'm that average moron when it comes to wiring....it wasn't that difficult. I just took my time, figured out what a relay was and how to use it. The majority of the time was running the wires, hiding them.

How much did it cost to get the light bar and the four lights? I've been thinking of doing that myself

Nice jeep, tell us in a year how you like that light bar on top, wether it is solid or rattles around.
