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?

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

They were ordered through Quadratec. The set comes with amber bulbs installed. It's not legal here to run blue so you should check your local laws.

I've had two different Jeeps with the TF tire and never had one sound come from it. It works awesome and is super easy to install.

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?

You know those silver appliques can just be removed, right? I took mine off a few weeks ago.

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.

Yesterday 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.
