I honestly couldn't tell you. Just picked it up Saturday night. But they're not near as bright or white as they look in the pic. They're a lot closer to the fogs in output color. I've got a new set of headlight assemblies on the way from rock auto and a set of the SilverStar Ultra's from my last truck that I'm gonna throw in there soon and see how they do

Went wheeling yesterday with another JF member. That was my first time wheeling.

My ZJ did really well. I bottomed out (at least that's what I think those THUDS were) a couple of times.

My 4PT (4 HI) on my selec trac did really well for me. Did some slow climbs, tires barely spun. My tires did well (DuraTracs)

All in all a good day. After wheeling, went and washed the Jeep right away

The only bushings I didn't change at that time were the bushings that are pressed into the front axle. I changed those when I did my current setup. Hopefully, those never need to be changed again...
did the new ones you bought come with new hardware as well? im scared of breaking bolts and whatnot if i do it myself with just a torque wrench and cheater bar... im sure they are pretty rusty

Generally, they don't. The bolts aren't super-expensive though, other than the front LCA cam bolts (which are around $30 for a pair, IIRC).

Swapped out a pair of lights on top. Traded my buddy my black magics for his 500FF's then picked up another pair from autozone so now they all match across the top. Gotta figure out where I'm gonna run the wires from them inside the jeep and where I wanna mount the switch

Replaced my upstream O2 sensor, was a pita to do without my floor jack but PB blaster and an extendable socket wrench made it possible. It suddenly started running rough and getting about 11-12 mpg about a week ago. That's combined city/highway on a 4.0, after a full tune-up (I usually get about 18 mpg). Replacing what looked like an ancient aftermarket O2 with a brand new OEM one, instantly smoothed everything out. To soon to tell if it stopped sucking up gas but I'll know in a couple days. Gotta replace those spark plugs that got all fouled up tomorrow.

Holy **** I'm pissed. Just went all the way to tractor supply to get welding wire, and I bought what I thought was the right size wire (I would have sworn on my life it was the right size) only to have it be the wrong size. Then I go to get the packaging out of the trash which I threw in there no less than 10 minutes ago only for it to be covered in ****. Hopefully I can get a different tip to make it work so I'm not out $20. Then I notice some dumb ****er went to close my socket set in the garage and spilled everything for like the third ****ing time. Jesus ****ing christ.

was there a noticeable difference in ride quality after new bushings? is it worth the time/money?
