The beam is very center focused on the Hellas because I have them mounted about 8" each way of center on the stock bumper (that's the only place I could reach in to get the back-nut on with those stupid plastic bumper caps on). But you can kinda get the gist of it I hope. Definitely brighter, and considerably wider throw. They do not shine as far as the high beams though.

Took the roof rack off, the stock rack off, painted all 3 wiper arms, and painted the hatch. Need to roll on a few more coats and wet sand it. It looks weird with nothing up there now...

Seems in the pics that's plenty light, like I said I have a couple KC lights I can throw on the roof rack for those back road nights. Xj lights are crap anyway so we will see how thi pans out. Thanks though I appreciate the pics.

You are welcome.

On the topic of lights, I ordered a set of Autopals that come with some 55/60s, and new plug ends to make my own heavy gauge harness. I'll probably upgrade to higher wattage lamps eventually. Can't wait to get them!

I used UV LEDs in my console - had to paint the PRNDL and 2-4x-4xfull-Low

Filled the tires up to 45 PSI. My max is 50 so I figure that's the most I can do

That's probably a very poor decision. Why?

As long as I don't wheel it I've never had any problems being this high before

Just watched the myth busters episode on over and under inflated tires... Confirmed my belief that the benefits of any over inflation are non existent and is not only dangerous but costs more in the end due to tire wear

Not that I know everything but XJs are light SUVs and you have heavy duty tires on it. At 45psi 2 tires probably could safely support the entire jeep. Do the outside edges even touch the ground?

And what did I do to my XJ today? NOTHING for the first time in 3 months.. Feels great.

Is that best for mpg too?

Pulled these 4 Cree LED Seward Offroad Twin 2's off of the WK and popped them on the XJ rack.







Nice lights!
