ebay, here is the link. not DOT aproved but really....what is on this thing anymore???? but to be honest with you they arent real bright. they are fine to let other drivers know that your backing up but no good to see where your going backwards. one of these days i'll put some floods back on the rear bumper.

(2) White 2" Round 9 LED Mini Reverse Backup Lights on eBay.ca (item 300347352077 end time 23-Sep-09 01:04:37 EDT)

lol.. got it.

ive seen wagoneers, just never seen them referred to as waggy or wag.

funny because a guy i went to iraq with last year has the last name wagle. (wagel)... we called him fagle, waggy, wags... etc.

Where in the area are you from? I am out east of Vernon where there are nmore trails than there are jeeps to wheel with.....

Was there anything under the hood that had clearance issues to the fenderwell after the highline? IE steering shaft/manifold etc.?

Pretty sick looking rig!

i am from Vernon... do you ever check out BC Jeep Club i have been in Vernon for years, you've never seen my YJ around?...kind of stands out.

as for clearance issues, TJ's have alot more problems than YJ's. battery tray stays the same, i already had an aftermarket air intake, the fuse box on passenger side had to be moved a few inches, i had long ago gotten rid of the factory jack and wheel wrench. i bought all new rubber matting (crappy tire) to hang down from my inner fenders to keep mud out of my shiny engine compartment. thats it.

the guys from bcjc get out wheelin often if your interested just get on the site and watch for when they are heading out. mostly around salmon arm or kelowna, and watch for my YJ i'm always out in it.

new front shock hoops, bilsteins and you can see the extended bumpstops. dont pay attention to the hi-tech sway bar hold up wire....

as she sits now


looks good
