Could you put up a zoomed out picture of the PA so I could get a better idea of how it sits in the engine bay?

Thanks, that's where I thought it was but wanted to be sure. I had a 79 F Custom in high school with a PA in it and I've always wanted to put one in my Jeep.

First off, thank you for your service!

And your Jeep looks really good, I really like the look of the Freedoms.

One thing I would do is replace the stock side bars with actual rock rails. You could keep them if you ever wanted to return it to stock, but they also seem to be popular so you could sell them to recoup some of the cost of rock rails.

The light install behind the grille is pretty slick, great idea! However I'd rething the lights on the side mirrors...while that looks cool on a Wrangler, I can't see that looking good on a WJ.

And you KNOW you need tires when the ones on there have a whitewall side, haha! I hear the ATR's are good, but if you want something with a more agressive looks while still being street friendly, check out the Goodyear Duratracs. I have them on my ZJ and love them. I find them quiet and smooth on the road, and terrific in the snow.

thanks for the advice. I know the freedom edition bars don't really protect much of anything but i don't plan on doing any hardcore rock crawling or mudding, its still my DD. and your right im still iffy on the off road lights for the side view mirror area, still looking if anyone else has tried it before i start drilling into ANY part of the truck. So that's not the biggest of priorities.
And as for tires i loved my Cooper Discoverer ATR's on my old land rover and would probably get something similar if not the same ones but waiting till i get my lift (probably late November early December) and that's also when ill get the tires.

And i am still looking for other ideas for my WJ if you have any, just trying to keep with some what of the same slick look of the truck but give it that great off road look, spit ball ideas if you want
thanks

well, brought the WJ to the dealer today with a couple problems:
stalling at lights
clicking sound in 4WD
unbalanced wheel
and engine light after the tranny refused to shift into overdrive.
wonderful week with it, but lets see how good the warranty does with all these problems (money wise).
