I just picked up a used set of black V3 projector housing and 35W 4500K DDM hid kit and 9005/9006 hi/low wiring harness from a member on jeepsunlimited. They turned out pretty good and the light output seems pretty good compared to stock. Also took advantage of the few nice days and put on a few of my local club decals. More exciting updates to come spring time.

Just out of curiousity, what setting do you run your MX-6's at? I can't figure out if they are too soft or too hard...the front seems to need a softer setting than the rear though...

I'm on the softest settings. I've heard of people running different front and rear settings.

Kyle, when u get some extra cash this is what you should do for your front end.




Then u could put a winch on. The bumper should also protect your radiator which looks kind of vulnerable. the only thing I am not sure about is if u can attach recovery points on this front with this bumper or if there is d-ring attachments.

I was playing around with the setting this past week. I have them at two spots left (conter clockwise) from full right (which I think is the softest)...this seems to be pretty good...

Yes Steve I do like the look of the ARB bumper and yes it has recovery points available too. I also really like the LSR incline...

Platinum, I have been doing a lot of research and it is funny but I came up with purchasing nearly the exact same setup you did lift-wise. Who did you get your OME springs from, sir? I'll have some "Before:" pics up at some point. Your WJ looks awesome!

Thank you...I bought mine used off a member but if I were to buy them new it would be from (Nick) kolak. I'm happy with the set-up. It rides nice and preforms well. More to come in the spring...

Those look like JCR-Stage 3. Are IRO's nearly the same? What's the cost difference? They look really nice. Did they come painted, and if so, what do they charge to get them painted? Powdercoating or something more base level? Of course, powdercoating is kind of wasted on something that's going to get scuffed up anyway. A good metal paint base coat with a spray on bedliner sounds nice, come to think.

JCR sliders are made from 2x4 steel and these with 2x2. These tuck nice and tight to the rocker and mount a little different. There are three frame kickers JCR only has two and also mount to the pinch seem differently. They come powder coated from IRO. The quality is awesome and they are super beefy. They mount with 20 bolts per side. They are $399 plus shipping. Shipped to my door was $480 and weigh roughly 48lbs each.
