HID bulbs in a halogen housing are really not worth it. You end up blinding other drivers and having less usable light in general. Unless you want to install projectors or at the very least E-code housings I'd just stick with a high quality halogen bulb.

It's the kit I originally bought and still run most components of. Ride is fine. Rear springs could be a little softer.

Thanks for the input.
What do you guys think of tube doors? I saw these that a guy made and was thinking of getting a friend that has the tools to help me make some...
And metalman, this is just what I've found with a lot of research, but light techies will tell you never to run hid in stock housing. They say it won't distribute light properly.

I think tube doors look cool. I personally wouldn't spend the crazy amount of money to buy a set. but I would make some if I had the material. If you make them do a write up an post it

Yup you're right. I won't tell people what to do, but the hid bulb in a halogen housing just doesn't perform well at all and looks pretty bad. The hid bulb distributes light differently compared to a halogen so the reflector must be hid specific. Some good info here. http://www.theretrofitsource.com/trs...projectors.php

Lol that write up might be a while off, because unless I find a pot of gold soon the money I made over the summer will run out pretty quickly. And my parents aren't going to let me work in the school year.

So has anybody ever heard of a Jammock? A hammock/bikini top for your jeep. Google it! I'm going to buy one tomorrow.

Yep, I think he just went on his honeymoon so you may have to wait a little longer on your order. If you had ordered yesterday he was sending them out and had a discount code up too. I would give him a call this morning and you may still get your order in.

The one for the back looks like it would be perfect for the drive in. I have found the backseat to be extremely comfortable for sleeping though, the wheel well makes for a nice pillow rest and hang your legs off the opposite side and dangle.

I'm the same way, I laid in the back with the top off and let my legs dangle outside, and its actually really comfortable. If I'd had a pillow I couldve moved back a foot and had even more room.

Because of the sandy hook shooting... If someone really wanted to cause harm to a school, a dumb backpack rule wouldn't stop them... It just becomes a nuisance to everyone. I mean where does it stop? Can we not bring plastic silverware in our lunch bc it can be used as a "weapon"?

I agree there is only so far you can go before it becomes overwhelming I think it's stupid because like you said if people want to do something they will do it no amount of rules can stop them from doing what they want and I think there is a certain amount of steps that should be taken but your school is really over stepping it
