I dont remember hitting anything bad enough to require them. I am surprised at the clearance I have for a 4" lift. I had the wheels off the ground though, I will be the first to post up when I do use them.

Took a quick run up Santiago this afternoon and got a shot at the radio towers...









got to come home in the dark so I could play with the lightbar...












...for anyone wanting to get a better idea how much light the lightbar puts out, here is a comparison:

...without lightbar.



...with lightbar.

Thats funny, lets just say it was a "special order". The guy at the tint shop laughed at me when I told him where I wanted it but once he realized that I wasnt joking he dialed me in.

I cant remember? I never thought about hi/low's, just took a pic with and without the lightbar. Since I am not on even ground it is hard to say but it was a trail so maybe hi's? Sorry, I really dont know.

Man I don't see how you stand it that low. I feel like the WJ windshield is too low as it is. I always find myself ducking down to see lights and signs.



Off topic: I accidentally clicked the thumbs down button your post when I was trying to click the quote button. Maybe I'll thumbs up it to negate it

I would say download it to your computer in high quality and whatever hosting site you use download it there in the highest quality. kinda sucks because it just takes long.

wow I bet that sounds very similair to a ford 2v V8. they are 4.6l sohc V8's in the gt's lol

Awesome Jeep!!
