looks like a fresh coat of paint , You have problems John...your engine stalled after a rev and the lights dim badly when start up. I would check into that.

it came out nice and clean
i have a bad IAC i think
why i think that:
-sometimes stalls after revving or after suddenly returning to idle from higher rpms
-stall when shifting from reverse to drive and vis versa (sometimes)

I am curious as to where you ran the wiring for the roofrack lights. I have been thinking of doing it myself and I am all about a clean installation. I don't want any wires hanging through the door jamb. Is there a hole somewhere that it can run through the body?

i cut 2 holes in my roof. since i have a sunroof it was tricky.
i cut 2 holes right under where the roofrack runs/mounts
then i cut holes in the roofrack right above the holes in my roof and fed the wires through

i see. doesn't it leak? I was also thinking about getting ahold of another crossbar and using that for the lights. That way it's removable for when I don't need it.

i havnt had any leaks. i cut a hole in the side of the roofrack so the top of it is still there providing some kind of cover.
when i washed my jeep the other day i sprayed down my roof right near where the holes were and was like "oh s***". went in and looked and didnt see anything on my headliner
