I'm considering it, maybe tomorrow if I'm not busy. And Yeah, I was thinking of taking the 2 outside ones off on the bottom, cause they rattle a lot and I like the pattern of the other two more, and now I don't have headlights that completely suck . I'll probably end up getting rid of the light bar completely and maybe getting some factory fog light mounts, and a new bumper cause this one is molested.

I'm loving my light setup, which keeps it simple enough (but puts out some serious light):

Headlights: e-codes with 55/100 bulbs (55w low, 100w high)

Fogs (used only in bad weather): pair of 85W amber IPF 840s in stock location

Driving lights (triggered with high beams): pair of 100W IPF 968 driving beam angled out a bit to see around corners and deer off the side of the road, and a pair of 100W Harbor Freight cheapo 100W pencil beams aimed straight ahead (decent, but probably going to be replaced with either Hella Rallye 4000 spots or IPF 900XSS spots come summertime).

The driving lights are mounted to the front bumper on a piece of 90* aluminum (one per side, holds 2 lights) that's just secured to the bumper with half a dozen #14 tap screws (per piece). Holds perfectly, no vibration, etc.

The low beams are kind to other drivers, but have a good beam pattern and throw plenty of light. When I hit the highs, it's pretty much daylight, and smoothly and nicely throws over a 1/4 mile (better spots will go further). It also doesn't dump too much foreground light right in front of the Jeep, which is good, as too much light close in reduces your distance vision.


On topic, I drove it and gave it the weekly tire pressure / fluid level check.

Freestyle, I don't think it would look THAT bad, it's just not my style to have stripes and such on a truck. If anybody could pull it off it would be you. Plasti Dip is a good option.

OT: Put 14 gallons in it. Cost me $70...

Went for a little drive and realized how damn much I love my Jeep... Also had a bunch of fun in the snow doing ice burnouts and finding awesome parking spots.

Nice purchase Whiteout! Going to be nice to have a nice clean reliable DD I'm sure!!!

Or maybe it just looks black because the dark grey color on the niner looks REALLY [Expletive Deleted] BLACK and it's a lot quicker to say "black" than "that really dark slate grey color they did".

Quit being a smartass.

I just based it off the info given, I would hate for someone to pay good money for a niner, that is not correct or not a niner at all, don't see how that made me a smart*** . How was I to know the info was incorrect, maybe he should have posted a pic.

There's a simple test to see if it's a real niner. Read the VIN. If it's a real niner, the first part will read 1J4GZ88Z.
