Plastidip is lazy you don't have to tape off exactly. It likes a edge so let it Do it's work. All in prep tho. Clean with alcohol and let dry. Then do light coats with 15 min between coats

Fleche Got tired of not having any light...or light that wants to turn off all the time without the key... in the back of my JKU, so completed step one of my lighting plan.

I put a switch below, and tapped into, the always on 12v outlet by the sub. Then back mounted a 12 LED strip (yes, it has a bit of wave in the drilling...) from Ozmonium a bit above the outlet. I'm going to add another one on the other side and probably one with the OEM rear light. The vent in the door is begging for some enlightenment as well.





In a pitch black garage. My phone didn't do the lights justice.

I'm thinking this is because the angle change caused by the lift. I also put the car into reverse and it started vibrating, the car was shaking. I turned it off and on and it stopped. Any ideas?
What "car" are you talking about??? I see a good looking Jeep in your pic!

Colorado Dude Wheeled Red Cone pass. Wanted to see the colors changing. Didn't expect to run into 20 yrd visibility. Also first time out with the new lift; metalcloak 2.5 arb edition. Worked so good, was so easy to climb over obstacles that slowed/stopped others. I was really impressed by what I could climb so easily.

It wasn't bad since I got a wiring harness and switch from a friend in my Jeep club for $10. I also had another friend help hook up all the electrical which helped cause I suck at that. The only problem I ran into was running the wires for the switch through the firewall. There wasn't an opening so I had to drill a hole, but everything worked out. Now I need to put some weather stripping rubber pieces to quiet the sound of the wind running across the cooling fins on the back of the light. All in all it was a great install.

NICE work (love the yellow!) Let me know if you have any troubleshooting tips on the vents; I have two stubborn silvers left before it's complete.
Looks good!

Good question--I considered it.
I CLEANED the back like I was going to paint it (it was nasty!), but didn't. I did four generous coats and went in different angles during each coat since there's a funky lip under each opening. Took the Jeep cap off and did it separately.
Momentarily considered the white (to match the body), but decided against it just based on mud.

Removed the spare tire carrier and moved the third brake light with a custom bracket. Overall I am very happy. Entirely new jeep!
. And where to keep a spare?
