that stuff looks like its gonna get hot bro

i would trim the fat if your going to use them for more than a minute or so

the switch in the bay shouldnt be a problem but you could try to route it thru the firewall by where the throttle cable comes in i think

the lights look cool though what kind of bar is that theyr mounted to ?

i meant shorten the wires so there is less resistance

resistance=heat

dumped 2 quarts of oil in it, aired up the tires... Typical every other week or so BS!

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys a Jeep. And I ain't ever seen a sad person in a Jeep!!

Filled it up and checked the fluids in preparation for a trip to Cliff's Insane Terrain tomorrow with the Northwest Indiana Jeepers club. It should be a good time. Maybe tomorrow I'll be posting about what I break while I'm there.
