Yeah im fortunate to live in such a great place were you can get outdoors with your Jeep legally.

Haaa the lift, I sold it. Probably shouldn't have but had a few things come up unexpectedly with Family so that comes first.

Well today I took my throttle body off and cleaned it pretty good, and HOLY CRAP, what a difference! It's like driving a new jeep! I got so used to the way it started, idled and ran before, this is so much better. Also, I'm pretty sure mine had never been cleaned before, ever. The factory thread lock made some of those bolts pretty tough, I destroyed a T-20 Torx screwdriver.

On another note, I talked with Mark from Detours Off-Road Hardware, and I ordered a light bar for the jeep, my next paycheck I'll probably pick up a pair of KC Daylighters. any recommendations on these or any other types of lights?

Love your build.

I have KC slimlights and love them. They fit easily in front of the grill and are very bright and well built. I have the long range which are a pencil beam. They go very far down the road and I use them for avoiding deer on back roads. If you want a wider pattern I'd go with the driving light version of the slimlights. Either way you can't go wrong with KC. Pricey but worth it.

Hey thanks

Anyhow, yeah I was thinking about the Black, 130W, Long Range ones (I think there the 631 model), but I'm not sure, now im thinking I might want the driving style, but I don't know. My light bar probably won't be here for a week, so I have some time to decide.

BTW, how do you like the BBK TB, I was on there website and noticed there kinda pricey, is it worth it? Did you notice any changes?

I'd definitely go long range, I love mine. I've swapped them out for Hella and other driving beam lights and always went back to the KCs. As far as the BBK, I wouldn't. My friend had a BBK and it was totally wrong for his truck even though the site listed it as the correct one. They basically gave him the run around when he tried to return it still brand new and wanted to charge him a fee even though they listed it wrong. I had to call and tell them I would contact the better business bureau and finally they let him return it. Mine has a loud whistle and I'm currently trying to sell it. Go with Jeff Leigh's 63MM throttle body, you won't be disappointed. Great product, price, and service. I noticed better throttle response and gained a solid 1 mpg. I'd upgrade your intake while you are at it to get the full effect.
