Well, I think I'm going to put the KMA bumpers up for sale since I'm probably going to have EOR build me some bumpers that have A LOT better approach and departure angles. At least get an LSR front and Protofab rear. Don't know what I'm going to do with the LF240s now...

To be honest, I'll probably just put it on craigslist and do a local sale. I really don't want to fool with freight shipping. Sorry.

Don't really know right now. I might sell them because I'd rather have a set of LF170s because I really had no idea how massive the 240s were going to be. Hell, I might end up with a 10" Rigid LED bar to save some room and still get nice light output.

So right now, its either sell the entire LF240 HID kit or sell the lights by themselves and keep the ballasts and run LF170 HIDs. But I'll definitely entertain the idea of selling the kit right now...

So I've been fighting with my Yellow Top here lately. Since the WJ isn't started very often the battery has obviously died. I've jumped it off a few times to drive the Jeep around every so often, but the Jeep doesn't want to idle or the the radio doesn't want to stay on. The voltage indicator jumps all over the place while I'm driving it around. Pulled the battery last weekend and put a multimeter to it...6.2 volts. Not good. Put my Battery Tender charger to it and the charger said it was charging. I come back this weekend and the battery still reads 6.0 volts. I figured I'd be getting a new battery. Then I found this gem of an article:

http://www.hotrod.com/techarticles/g...y/viewall.html

Hooked up a good spare battery and I guess I'll check back this weekend.

And here is a good website for some battery tech if your interested:

http://www.batterystuff.com/kb/artic...ry-basics.html

Just for tech's sake, here is what optima says they like for charging. Even though they obviously want you to buy their own charger...

http://www.optimabatteries.com/produ...t/charging.php

Still waiting on my lockers. I guess they didn't really ship out on Presidents day or else they would have been here by now, even with ground shipping. I'm also still waiting to hear back from EOR about a build quote. Called them three time this weekend without anyone answering...must be super busy over there. So I guess I'll try again this week.

Goodluck on the battery fix. If u have to buy a new one, go for a Sears Die Hard or Odyssey battery (same underlying manufacturer)... They are now rated the best.

FYI: EOR's phone line got cut the other day when they were laying concrete. Not sure of the phone company has fixed it or not.

Thanks. I've been reading up on other AGM battery brands and have read good things on the Die Hard batteries. I've also seen some Duralast Platinum reviews popping up that look to be positive.

Didn't know about EOR's phone line. It rang all the way up until their voicemail, so I don't know. I'll give them another holler this week and see what's up.

Haven't read that tactic yet. What does that do exactly?

Oh and another thing...Is anyone even interested in my LF240 HID lights? After seeing videos of the Rigid LED light bars, I'm sold.

If the parallel battery charging doesn't work, I'll somehow rig up the Optima to charge upside down.

And holy balls, that bar is bright. Is that a 40" bar? I've been looking into the 20" bar and the daully lights. I'll definitely be looking for a price here soon.

Ya, that is the 40". Let me know. And here some more shots, some of the duallys. I got those for my rear bumper.








I also got amber covers that snap on very securely for heavy snow/heavy dust situations to improve visibility. Here are pics with one of the covers in place, and general pics of the 40" e series main light bar.


This next shot shows the lighting effect of snapping the cover on, vs the native color output
