maybe i missed it but do you have HIDs in your fogs? im looking at getting those projector headlights with a seperate projector for high beams and a projector with the clean cut off line. it will be way off but im curious how they will look with the fogs on and head lights or if the fogs will over power the headlights.

jeep is looking good by the way man!

Shouldn't be an issue at all man, done a couple of Tcase swaps and plenty of rear end swaps. Shoot me a PM and let me know.

update

did a check to make sure everything on the niner was in working order so i can get an inspection sticker this week since it has a expired sticker on it from over 6 months ago since it was sitting. had to swap out the amber turn signals for stock clear set since one had a hole in it that the key was able to go into. i cant wait to get the inspection done so i can install the projectors and start driving it again
