Carolina Driveline is outstanding. They are 10 min away from my house. I got 2 new spicer u-joints for my rear shaft for under 30 bucks.

Nice Jeep man! Ive seen it around the site a few times. I have a few questions about your front DS. I saw you paid $218 shipped was that with the tcase yoke? Are their any vibrations in 2wd or 4wd? Do you have a tcase drop installed?

Thanks man

yeah it came with the transfer case yoke ..but i bought a new yoke for my font axle from rugged ridge because the stock yoke uses straps to hold on the u joint..and my new yoke uses a u-bolt to hold in the u- joint.. and i have no vibs in 2 wheel but in 4 wheel i have slight vibs

nice WJ build
this is the wiring i used..

ground wire on socket > black wire on jeep
Minor wire on socket ( dimmest light ) > black/yellow wire on jeep
Major wire on socket ( brightest light ) > white wire on jeep
i got the sockets from advanced auto

if you have a sunroof and open it all you are going to here is gusting wind from the lights..with the sunroof closed you still here some wind but not as much and if you completely close the sunroof to where you cant see the window then there in no noise

heres some pics..
i just found out that my cell phone doesn't take good pictures at night but i will tell you that these put out much more light output then in the pictures



here is all of my lights on

i ran two positive wires to the battery
one wire for each set of lights.
then i just used one wire for the ground

just make sure you get thick wire or there going to melt..i forget what gauge i used

ok, i noticed the given cable and it looks like 16 gauge so was curious on how you did it. i used 10 gauge for my 2 130W and its a bit over klil but i rather over do it with electrical items then use thin cables.

hows the jeep hold up with all the light on at the same time?
has to be over 60 amps drawn with them all on at the same time
