If anyone is interested in headlight upgrades, I'm working with ┬ę2012-2013 HID Projectors on a group buy (containing it to locals, part of a jeep club). If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM. I should be able to get around 10% per set.

I saw a post on a private group I'm in about it, don't have a winch yet so I figured I wouldn't be any help. Was this the spot just past the body shop on 1?

Ha ha. Yeah, that is pretty sketchy back there. With those tires that guy should never have been on anything in the first place more than a dirt road.

To the guy saying security, that why they were there in the dark. Even then if your exhaust is noisy you will still get the cops called for being there. I have not been back there myself in a long time because of that.

that's sweet. what rear taillights are you running? I've been thinking about doing that setup. I was going to go with the gen right taillights then use the rock lights go reverse.

It's actually funny. After looking online and not liking what I saw I find those at pep boys for like $35 each. They are led and waterproof, and I have submerged them. I used 14 gauge aluminum diamond plate and rivited them in. The reverse lights are so so. They get the job done, but when I build a rear bumper in the near future I am installing Brighter reverse lights in it.
