I followed this: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/ho...it-980321.html ...but I modified it some. I'm still actually working on the lights (this was a test-fit), so in a week or so I'll post my project outcome in that thread.

Seriously, follow that thread above. If you're handy with a Dremel, if you can spray-paint, if you can splice two wires together, if you're a logical problem solver, you can build these lights for less than $200 - and it's a serious, game-changing upgrade.

I got the aluminum spacer kit from eBay. If you type JK rear seat kit into the eBay search, the JK products plastic kit and the other company aluminum kit will pop up. And yes the bolts are a HUGE PITA without air tools. I used an impact and air ratchet and it took about an hour. A little pricey but the lack of whining from the back seat makes the price worth it to me!

Let me guess... Had trouble unscrewing the bolts? I had to take out the front seat bolts to install under seat lock box and swore never again

Ddpiper Installed the Springtail MPAC rear folding tailgate tray built by Springtail Solutions. This thing in built really well and install was a breeze. No drilling, no rattling. It included the molle bags. There is an install video on their website also that was very helpful. Website is http://store.springtailsolutions.com...ombo_p_29.html

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:

Thanks, man. Kept the price low by assembling'em myself - followed this How-To, mostly, with some modifications.

So very totally worth it. It's a tremendous upgrade.

install was real simple. I had 2 sets of Allen wrenches which is needed. The 1 lower bolt is hard to get to. I used a small 1/4" ratchet with a swivel socket worked well. Took less then 30 minutes to put on both and adjust. They look massive and heavy duty. If your jeep has painted fenders beware after in-latching it don't just drop it. It could take paint. I do really like the look and fit. They look and feel much better than stock. Also amazon has them for under 80 bucks.

Where do you get the spacers from?

Also, installed Rigid SR-M flush mount back up lights. I tapped them to existing back up lights and separately to the sPod, so i can punish tailgaters . They are very bright and i can now see everything behind while i back up.

Oh, also put a mask on my third brake light and it lights up eyes while breaking
