Thanks Project1!

I am more critical on my own stuff and think that it could look a lot better. I still have a couple more lights that need to be connected correctly. I disconnected the factory fog lights and got a pair of HID's that I have mounted on the top of the bumper connected to those factory connections. I want to run another relay and fuse for them but am trying to decide the route to go. I figure for a week or two they will be alright on there. They may be turned on only a couple of times till I do it the right way.

I think that he is still making them. I haven't been over to that forum in a good while.
How much was it?

It came with the cable also. I remember looking into making it myself but would be cheaper and easier to get it from him.

Hidden Falls Trip

Took the family on our first wheeling trip this past weekend to an ORP called Hidden Fall's that is near Marble Falls, Texas. It was a blast. I tried to help my wife and middle son over come there fear of heights as we were going over some of the obstacles. Here are a couple of pictures from the trip.

These pictures don't do this place justice. It was a bunch of fun.

I was pleased with the way that the Jeep handled itself. There were a couple of small climbs that it made with ease that some of the built up wranglers with lockers had issues with (I think that they took bad angles, but hey mine made it look easy).

I have some video's on youtube for but am having problems getting it to show right on the preview so I will try to figure that out and post some of them up.
