i think your going to like those skids

im 50/50

love that theyve saved my t/c , gas tank and radiator 3 x now

not so much when doing the front d shaft or welding the exhaust

cant take them off because they are rust bonded now with a million lbs of tq

bring your 3 ft breaker bar and p.b. blaster

Can't wait to get off work tomorrow and put these in. Anyone else do led tails and turns? How do you put in the led flasher or whatever?

On my last Jeep (06 commander), I just put the led bulbs in. I didn't have to mess around with the flasher or anything. If that is all you are changing than you should be ok.

If they blink fast it really isn't that big of a deal. And eventually every light in this zj will be led other than head lights.

yea, that's why i couldn't pull them today. going back there with cutting wheels. a breaker bar isn't gonna do it. i really need to buy a nice portable impact wrench. but i'm a tool snob and i only like to buy top of the line tools that will last me a lifetime. and it seems like i shouldn't budget $500 for such an impact wrench and probably $200 for good sockets.

They look like they have the resistors built in so i don't think your gonna have a problem with them. It's when they don't have the built in resistor, they'll blink fast.


Not today but....
Did my rockers with bedliner now that they are de-pedestal'ed (new word by chance?)

Oh like the 35$ a pair with half 4x less bulbs. 4x less build quality. And I paid 10 bucks a pair for these. I never thought of that though.
