I need to get a camera like MoonyJohn has, right now it's a pain to take phone pics all the time. I haven't decided yet but I'm leaning towards IRO right now, just cause there cheaper.

I have to agree with BlackZJ, you ought to tint your tail lights. It would look amazing with them blacked out.

Yeah, i'm gonna be going with their kit sometime soon too. I have been talkin to those guys a lot and their kit has some advantages over the Claytons and it comes with a lot more stuff for less money

your rig always makes me want a zj... keep it up!

i think if you get the same finish on your bumpers as the rack it will tie in really well! i kinda think you should put 2 hella's on it too..
