tjdphoto Just got my JKU after thanksgiving. Got some small things for Christmas and installed them today:

Door Handle Guards
Door Sill Guards
Tire Cover

And the rugged ridge phone holder. I didn't quite like how big the phone holder was but it has a regular tripod mount built in. Gorillapod makes a phone holder that can screw right into it. Only landscape though but I can flip it down to hide it while not in use. Not totally decided if I will keep it that way.

I also received a smittybuilt hitch I haven't installed yet. Just starting this journey with my Jeep, but I'm really excited.

Just so you know, you should not use your torque wrench to break loose bolts. It's a... Well at least a semi precision tool and you could damage it.
Go to your local Home Depot,NorthenTool,HarborFreight,Lowes whatever and get a "cheater bar". It doesn't ratchet but will fit large sockets (also get an adopter so it will fit your sockets if needed). Basically a long bar allowing you to apply large amounts of torque to remove stubborn bolts. Use your torque wrench with the proper setting to put bolts back in.

6 point all the way. It took some doing but I was able to "maneuver" the impact into position to break the bolts loose. When I had my amp installed under the rearseat, the installer used an impact to remove the bolts on the passenger side of the seat so I knew I could get it done. And yes Jeep should have done this from the factory to save us some headaches lol.

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.
Honestly look great!
I was planing on ordering from here: http://www.hidprojectors.com/product.php?type=1

But doing it yourself can easily save you over half the price of these.
Thanks for sharing the how-to!

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!

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:
