image-844632241.jpg



image-4149693716.jpg


CCFL Are deff brighter than my old led's.


image-429348566.jpg



image-3239438386.jpg


Couldnt be happier with them, they Are perfect


image-2025419413.jpg


Next i need whiter low/high/fog bulbs, looks kinda dull, might order some Halo fogs, but havent made up my mind about everything yet,


image-2368802050.jpg


Chrome in grill might have to go, and sure need some mesh insert, just dont sure about color.

I don't know, your fogs look pretty bright. Maybe not as white as the Spyders. They look nice. I think the chrome grill is fine. I'm not a fan of the blacked-out look.

The light you see in that pic is just the CCFL Halo Rings and led's, no low or high beam bulb lit, so they Are H bright.
Hi/LO bulbs Are same color as the fogs, so i deff need to upgrade them to, just another thing to add to my list.

I am not sure if i have made up my mind about the grill/chrome, it just look to nice,,, kinda

Maybe some mesh will be enough, or i might to something with it, also keep in mind That my Sagguaro shackles will be mounted, i could find a Nice color, do mesh, shackles, brakes, and diff covers in this theme color, i

dk, havent managed to make up my mind yet.

Ideas?

Those are without a doubt my favorite CCFL Halos for the WJ. They are bright and they look good without being too ricey! haha. In the USA the Overland's have Chrome on Chrome Grills and only the Laredo's had the body matched grills as yours does. I like how your front end as it sits right now, a lot haha. I like my body color matched Laredo grill.

My Overland has the chrome rings around the color of the car kind of grill, so not too much chrome. It's too bad I already bought headlights this past summer, but then, nah I will be needing my money for Christmas, now. Oh well, I am satisfied with what I have right now. I'll be needing time to re-accumulate money again after Christmas.

Thx guys, i love them myself, might Get used to the chrome, we will see, but grill mesh is not optional, it need to be done to make the front look younger.

This is how i found my Jeep this morning, first snow, solid 3"
image-3965902852.jpg

Dog loves it too,
image-1234978309.jpg

Playing around in the snow, image-1695567830.jpg image-1637557394.jpg image-865148889.jpg

Subbed. I liked your green wj build. You will love the 4.7 H.O. Are you going with bds coils again? Is there a reason you used 5W30 instead of 10W30 oil? I'm digging the spider headlights. Cheers!

Thx man, my green WJ Are missed for sure, atleast until i Get this to the same point of ride quality, handling, and mods'n upgrades.

I really enjoy it, its s damn Nice ride, cool factor will raise with the time, taken into consideration That i used several years on the green one, i am very inpatiant to Get this new HO to the same point,,,
But give me 6 months, That should be realistic time aspect, to Get the new Overland kicking aces.

Iam deff going BDS again, awsome onroad handling, and i still have all lift parts and goodies out of the green one, so it will continue to live with me, atleast some parts of it, ha ha

5W-30 is whats recomended in owners manual if temp goes below freezing, i might try 10W-30, for my next oil change, i recently got a great deal on Omega engine oils, (Norwegian guys just won offshore race World cup running on this Brand oil), Bought a 5 gallon bucket to share with my friend, and some Omega engine flush i have very Good expirience with from my last Jeep, ran it at every oilchange, still at 175k km, didnt use ANY oil between changes.

Will do another oil change/flush again soon

We just had two different three inch snow days here in SouthWest Ohio. I didn't take any pictures. Started just fine, drove it to heat it up inside so that the rest of the snow, that I couldn't get off of the top, would melt off. Worked just fine, until I woke up and found another 2-3 inches on it the next morning.

Miss my Viper alarm/remote start every day.

Been around town looking for 4300-5300k headlight and fog bulbs today, no luck, might not be "on shelf part" due to i doubt they Are street legal here

Might just order them online,
Anyone have a good source of great bulbs?

I order mine from ddmtuning.com. They are only $10 but the shipping is killer so I order a couple other things from them usually to.

Towed a trailer today, to deliver front Dana 30 axle from my part out Jeep, more money for parts'n upgrades

image-2749068801.jpg


HO tow really Nice, couldnt Even notice i had something behind, deff feel more strong, seems like it kept torque converter more locked up and dosent downshift up hills as easily as my old 4.7 low Output.

Also a big fan of the US style integrated tow hitch, really easy on/off operation, highly improved over the old one. Which was stuck on, which i like to keep stupid ppl away from my rear bumber while parked.


image-1969944869.jpg


But this one looks so clean when off, so thats how we roll.

No Work or anything done to the Jeep last days, busy with other things and waiting for parts.

I think your picture of the axle makes an optical illusion.....The axle in the trailer looks as wide as your jeep is long LOL

I REALLY need to get a rear trailer hitch on mine. I'm missing it badly.
