Drilled and/or slotted rotors increase braking efficiency by allowing the hot gasses created when braking to vent, which increases your available clamping force.

What did you do to your JK today? Hit the brakes at 120 then lost control, flipped a bunch, but my rotors stayed cool......

Does your Jeep really go 120? My speedo tops out at 100. Sounds terrifying, stay safe!

13JKU Added some KC Hilites 4" LZR LEDs onto the winshield. Install not too bad just time consuming since the supplied harness was a no-go. Distance between the two lights via the harness was setup for a bumper mounting. Hence, little splicing action and a little experimentation with routing, etc.

Overall love the way the look and they put out decent light.

No I didn't want a metal case because of the noise when off road but it's a thick plastic with metal clips and got it from princess auto but there are metal cases there as well !

USMC6287 I just got back from a 9 month boat deployment and finally pulled the trigger on a Metalcloak 2.5 in. Game Changer Lite system. Gotta wait 3 weeks for them to ship it though.

Please post some photos once you get them mounted up! Angled for use as a step too?

I didn't measure side-to-side to see how different that was, though. I guess it depends how the FlashCal is programmed to interpret what you input and compensates that the tires are installed and at "correct" pressure?
Circumference won't change, but the actual working radius of the tire will. The proper way to set your tire diameter is to measure from the ground to the center of the wheel and double the number or to use a chalk mark on the tire for one revolution on the ground and measure the distance traveled and calculate the diameter from that. That will be the diameter you input in the computer. The pressure is irrelevant in the calculations the computer makes. The pressure will affect what you measure in regards to the radius though. A tire at 40 psi will travel farther in one revolution than a tire at 5 psi even though the actual circumference of the rubber is unchanged.

Had same experience. They work great and look like they should have come standard.

Years of installing accessories professionally. Common sense that if a positive wire grounds out then it melts or worse case it catches fire. Yes I have seen it happen first hand.
