Nice dude! Keep on staying in contact with them, the wait wont be so long, only a few weeks at most.

Its going to look really weird with bumpers, lights, and sliders with a small lift and stock tires lol

Yea, I'm going to keep calling and getting updates as much as I can about them. I'll call them again on Monday to tell them I'm off on the 30th to pick them up.

It will look a little weird at first I think, then it will grow on me. I mean the sliders don't really look out of place now, but the bumpers will for sure. Those spot lights on the front don't help either. The tires are bigger than stock though, they were 31s when they were new. Don't know now since ~40k miles are on them so far.

Forgot to mention, I tested out one of the lights last night. Plugged it in to a friends car that had 35W HIDs installed already. WOW. The light output is INSANE!

Yea man. I didn't forget about you. I might go wheeling the 24th, so I might still need them one last time.

Yea, the rear was included in the price. I'd rather sell them as a set instead of 2 parts. Don't want to deal with the hassle of trying to find another buyer.

Got some wiring done on the Jeep a little bit ago. Wired in two new switches. One is a simple ON-OFF switch to control the relay for the LF 240s up front. The other is a three way ON-OFF-ON switch for the reverse light. That way I can have the aux. reverse light have an "AUTO" mode to where it only comes on with the stock reverse lights, OFF, or always ON. I think it will turn out pretty cool. And all of it is run off the switched power supply, so no worrying about forgetting to turn lights off and draining the battery.

Basically got all the interior wiring done today. Will probably wait to do the rest of it when my bumpers get put on.

Back wired up:



New switch setup. Left is a simple ON-OFF switch for the relay controlling the LF 240s. The right one is a double pole/double throw ON-OFF-ON switch to control the two reverse light relays.



Try not to hate on my wiring job.

Well, I just decided to wire up the LF 240 HIDs while I was in the wiring state of mind. I wish I had a camera that could show you the amount of light these things put out. It's absolutely ridiculous.

Placed the ignitors:



Placed the ballasts and hid the rest of the wire in the bumper:



Plug and play!



I'll try to get a night shot of these things for everyone. I was grinning ear to ear when these things kicked on tonight. I could wave in planes with these things.

Going wheeling tomorrow with a few folks from JF. Should be a fun time.

When I get back, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on a Superwinch EPi9.0. That should complete my bumper setup!

I'm beginning to look at front bumpers, after I pick up my sliders. Is the bumper your getting able to mount a winch? I really like the design of that one. Its a good price because the LSR bumper is realllly expensive for me.

EDIT: Just kidding. found it.

I'm taking a day off work this coming Monday (8/2) to go pick up my bumpers, so pictures of those will be soon.

Also ordered a Superwinch EPi9.0 with synthetic line over the weekend. Should ship out on Thursday. Anyone ever installed a safety thimble on a synthetic line that didn't come with one originally? Also thinking about wiring up some in cab winch controls from 12voltguy.
