How do you like the one-piece headlights? I have seen those on jf a couple times now and wondered how well they are made. Do they use all the origonal mounting points/screw locations?

To tell you the truth I was wicked skeptical but I personally absolutely love them I had to get a new headlight peice cause it was broken and the headlight sat funny but with the new one it slides into the blinker mount near the grille and screws into the top corner where the marker went only thing you need to modify is the wire harness clip in the back needs to be moved and there made extremely well they feel better made then stock wj headlights do and there so bright visablity is ten times beter and better then my mothers wj with the same bulbs so must recomend to anyone who likes the look of them

i like it i pers like the original grill. or take the slots out and fill the gaps witch that grill stuf u have it kinda makes me think of an gmc lol. ditch tht bug shield tho i took mine of. plus i would think ur jeep would look preety cool if u put on or fab a nice push bar and put a roof rack on like the excauhst thing to the side but hate glasspacks. just a hollow tube. or just run open header lolololol anyway nice job and that accident gave u an excuse to invest in it

yeah like most say the grille and lights are a push but in person it doesn't look the ricer with everything else and the crome blends into the white nice i have a niner grille to get fabbed in to fit the hid-away lights behind it once i get the bumper and header so hopefully that makes it look alittle better but personally i love it this way now and yes buzz i made it myself

Why don't you just get a light bar or aftermarket bumper with light mounts? With the 96+ bumper, header, and 5.9 grill you are spending almost as much if not the same. I mean, it doesn't make much sense to spend all that on plastic parts when you could have something substantial with tow points. Look at this one http://www.tacticalarmorgroup.com/TA...6/Default.aspx

Maybe a used one. But the way I see it is that you are already willing to spend half of what it cost for a nice steel bumper but on plastic parts. Why not take that 250 and save it until you have the money for the steel one? Sell the 5.9 grill. I have seen them on the web for over 100 bucks. That's is even more money towards a nice bumper.

I found one here for 150 wow IT"S JUST A PIECE OF PLASTIC!!!! lol http://compare.ebay.com/like/1707163...=sbar&_lwgsi=y
