i really want the Eagle Alloy Series 185's

i dont like the gold rims at all. the PO didnt like the green orvis wheels, which i love haha, but the last like 4,000 orvis' made had the gold limited wheels becasue there was a higher demand for them than expected. <--- Little known fact

as far as pics im not sure if i have any.

basically i used 2 woods screws per light. i made precise measurements, and drilled the light directly into the bumper. i know some other guys like grandche or mooney might be able to provide pics. but its really simple, 4 wood screws, a tape measure, and a drill is all i needed.

eventually. i gotta make it through my senior year, then I'll do army resevre through college and hopefully get a senior rotc scholorship, so i'll have cash to throw at the jeep then.

in other news, im ordering some new pioneer tweeters since the wiring has gone haywire and i get random static, and hopefully i can nab a hitch tow hook and some other recovery gear.

probably getting front windows tinted soon. then over summer i'll be getting 2 12" alpine type-e subwoofers and then exhaust, eventually...

and those are my current plans!

im just waiting for my friend to come home, and for my sub to arrive (tomorrow!) i found a 10" fusion bass tube 300W for $100! good enough for a little beat in the trunk!

when i did my own intake, there was little to no throttle response improvement or anything, just sound. the intake i bough on ebay for like $70 is larger in diameter, has a heatshield, came with a HUGE filter, 3/8" TB spacer, now that had some improvements!
