Just went to your profile. Nice... How do you think the LED's would look under dash, about 2 - 3 feet long?
Thanks ... awesome IMO. Mine are only about 4-5 inches each, but they are bright in the dark. I would imagine a couple feet would really shine! :thumb:

Local O'Reilly/Auto Zone or other auto parts store should also carry a nice variety if you want to see them before you buy them. Ebay will take a couple days longer, but also works! :thumb:

Fitted this $35 DDM Tuning LED light to my reverse lights. Only draws 1.25 amps, and I hooked it into the reverse light circuit on the passenger tail light. 3x as bright as before and can easily see with my scratched up rear window.

110mm Spot style light (more like a directed flood light):

Took me 15 mins to do and I just bolted the light to an existing hole. Relatively cheap IMO and pretty easy to do.

Most build threads are filled with stories of rust and stuck bolts. A lot of the bolts on your YJ frame are floating nuts you can't get to to clean up the rust. But you can get a drill close enough to do this. Depending on the size of the bolt find a corresponding pistol or rifle bore and use the cleaning brush. Load it into your drill lubricate and clean the threads. Saves the time of tapping all the threads again and with some lubricant you cant clean the rust and leave lube film at thhe same time. You will finnd a brush that fits tight may be dificult to reverse and come out sometimes run the brush all the way through aand then reverse. It has saved me hours. At your local gun shop bore brushes are relatively cheap cleaning tools for the YJ.
