You need 5. Make aure you get the wide angle ones or your lights will fade out toward the end.

So i've had my XJ ( Fiona ) for a little over 1 week, i am pleased with the upgrade from my YJ seeing that i can actually hear my radio and use the phone while driving when needed Over this past weekend i did various little repairs around the vehicle, i took the door trim off, fixed the dent in my front driver side fender, switched the radiator from water over to coolant and a few other things with the help of my dad. I also picked up a roof rack off of some random people i seen at a laundromat, picked it up for 100 bucks and spent 15 bucks on paint ( rustoleum truck bed paint ) I like the way the rack looks and i threw my set of Hellas up there and mounted my set of IPFs on my bumper. I havent had any problems all the way up until today, when i noticed a nice puddle of coolant underneath of it, i took a look underneath and sure enough it was coming from my Jeep. I drove it home keeping an eye on the temp. with nothing reading over 190-200 degrees. When i pulled into my driveway i took a look again to see if it had leaked any more and this time it was a continuous flow of coolant. So i had a buddy pick me up a lower radiator hose and 2 hose clamps and replaced those all in about an hour and a half. Took it for a short drive and have had no more leaks I am hoping it was an easy fix and nothing else major so we shall see! I also decided to go with the Rusty's 4.5 inch lift and is waiting for me at my dad's for this weekend, i cant wait!!

*here are some poser shots with the new roof rack*

Ok i found some free time so here are the pictures. These are my dad's 33's, i am looking for a 31 or a 32 inch tire since these absolutely destroyed my turning radius But the rims and tires definitely complete the look i was aiming for! hopefully getting different tires sometime this week so i can try out the new suspension!
