Decided to go out and loom my rock light wiring and P-Clip it all up tightly, and figured I'd take a pic of my light output

I like it too. Goes with the theme. It's a nice gauge and it changes to 7 different colors too

Got everything cleaned up on the Jeep today!! Took my front flares off in prep for May Long wheeling trip, then got my Hi-Lift out and gave it a fresh coat of black and gave the handle my personal touch, then a fresh coat of black on the bumpers and rock sliders

I have been tossing the idea around about building roof-line rain gutter sliders...this is my vison:

Build only the roof slider rails, with the cross bars (NO BASKET) I will add a 4th cross bar at the rear section and angle the front crossbar up at 30 degrees and place a 40" Single Row LED bar in there... like this (roughly)

_____/,=====,/

(having the cross bars gives me the option to build a removable basket if I want as well... this is my summer project!!
