JEEPbug I'd like to let anyone know who doesn't have the rear seat "spacers" to recline the back seat (JKU), your missing out. Just got back from Christmas road trip with the kids and they were extremely happy about not sitting at a 90 degree angle for 4 hours. I highly recommend.

One Xenon and one halogen - the angel eyes don't normally look so dramatic, but the Xenon lens was fogged up from me opening it up constantly to fiddle with the wiring and such:

Somewhat better view of 'ready' (keyed on) state (amber angel eyes, blue devil eyes in the center):

Lights on:

Color/temperature differences (the fog lights are all LED):

And finally, the most important part - direct lighting comparisons. I took a couple of sets of three pictures, all with the same camera settings in each set, so the pictures are directly comparable.

Starting with both Xenon and halogen lights on:

And to be fair, a halogen-tuned set:
Those are sick. I'm officially jealous. How did you get the price so low?

ivantate Started installing my TJM skid, bolts are about 5mm short to make an easy fit. Not sure if the brackets have been beefed up and the bolts didnt change length.

Instead of more wrestling i will be getting some longer bolts tomorrow.

Have a face, ear and hair full of dried mud that has dropped off while lying under there. Bleugh.

Paul_G Got my IPad RAM mount in today and GPS receiver since I only have a wifi Ipad. Got it all installed and cables run so it is on a switched circuit. I got the b-socket ball and mounted it throught the factory grab handle to the handle screw via a pipe nipple and some epoxy wizardry. Seems sturdy enough. If it loosens I may throw a star washer between the ball and pipe nipple mount.

Now to try which app suits me best and a bit of a drive tomorrow. I'll try it off the receiver and tethered to my phone to see how it does.

I'm thinking of getting the engine/trans/cat skid. I'm confused w your pic. Is that what this is? What r your thoughts of the install/ quality ?
Today 06:09 PM
Ohioskully pics in other threads in build section, but added XT mountain graphic decal on both sides, Harley Davidson decal to windshield

and pulled the rock slider steps off and plastic dipped the pinch seam below the doors this was a huge benefit ascetically for low cost as you cant even tell the pinch seam is there now.

Day star latches are cheap and work.
