Yes! Do you have his contact info? I can't find his old email or phone or anything. Does anyone have it? His name on here was DJStorm.

If you do have a switch, then you can figure out how many switches you'll potentially need. I go the 6 switch, there is a 4 that mounts on a pillar. I'm a fellow noob, but I'd probably put them on different switches for now, if they serve different purposes (one set are spread patterned, one set are spot patterned).



I personally have two spots on the A pillars (KC pro sport HIDs) and a 20" combo bar in the grill. Once I get my fenders put back on, I'm wiring in some rock lights. Depending on how I choose to do that (I have 2-6 packs, could have them phase opposite of each other. I bought some because they remind me of night club lights as opposed to me being a hard core wheeler. Think rigid radiance.), I'll only be using 3 of my 6 switches. Leaves me plenty of flexibility. Plus harnesses usually cost around $70 each I think. So at 3 sets of lights, I've justified the cost of my switch.

Got that same Apollointech source/switch installed this weekend! My four cubes are all spot so I'll likely wire them on the same switch. Offered to buy a 20" light bar someone had for sale on here and was planning on throwing that onto the stock bumper too. That still means I have four switches open... any suggestions for more switch-required mods ? Thought about running another bar on the hood (GF is adamantly opposed to one on the windshield)?

I'll have the following on my switch at some point:

Windshield pillar LEDs
ARB air compressor
Front bumper LED
Rear lights
Rock lights
ALL lights (freak out mode)

All I have connected so far are the windshield lights and the air compressor.

How big would the garage need to be? Tool-wise, I only have the very beginnings of my tool collection so not sure if I'd have what you need.

Rear lights would definitely be nice, just no idea where to put them? Cut the stock bumper maybe?

For tools, need an impact wrench or air compressor and air tools etc. either would work. Need four jack stands and 1-2 ton floor jacks. I've got the manual tools and torque wrench sets but it is so much easier with air.

So, I've got a two car garage (just think standard garage dimensions) if you want to do it at my house but I'm lacking the air tools, impact wrench, and two jack stands (have two and a 3-ton floor jack). Wherever you decide, I could lend a hand if I'm free.

My tire carrier has an accessory mounting bracket so they'll go above the spare.

Might want to take a look at Top Coat. I have no experience with them but know someone who strongly recommends them.

https://www.facebook.com/Top-Coat-Inc-322339414521786/

Also, if you're interested in meeting up with some other Jeepers in Raleigh, check out this group:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/647494572112594/

We're getting together next Thursday, May 25th.

We'll be at Compass Rose Brewery May 25th at 6:30. About 5 of us so far. I'll try to remember to check this thread but I'm not on the forum nearly as much as I used to be.

Anyone going to Page Rd tomorrow morning (Memorial Day)? Thinking about a morning run before some neighborhood BBQing.
I've never been there.
I'm new to the group.
And, I haven't done anything more than easy cruising trail riding.
Can I go solo or do I need to worry about going with others in case I get stuck?
Thanks!

Hi Mclain, Page is fun but don't wheel it alone. Particularly if its your first time there. It has some pretty soupy places and you can get stuck. I've wheeled it many times and also with others. Not sure how many times someone got stuck.

Hey Guys! I'm not a Wrangler owner (1981 CJ-5), but I saw your thread about off road trails around Raleigh. I'm in town for the next couple weeks, and I would love to get my Jeep in the mud. If you guys are thinking about organizing something on Page Rd this weekend, I'll bring the beer.

Thanks!
