But stuff like gauges and headlights are inexpensive so thats some of the improvements im looking into. Its suprising but noone else I know really is into just making the WJ look sick. I really think its the crossover between a wrangler and a car. Any ideas for the gauges or headlights? What are you wanting to do?

I already have headlights done. I like mine for the most part. They are halos and projectors. I also have HID's which put out a LOT of light.

I like what you've done to it. Very clean and professional looking. I have a nice model to work off for mine, but I probably wont go 4inch because of the DD factor. 2.5 will do haha. I like where you put that gauge. Good spot for my trans temp gauge I'm installing. BTW ddmtuning sells a great kit for the price!

Where the control arms attach to the frame, the joint, not sure the name, but it needs to be straight. When I first installed it, the driver side was straight, but the passenger side was not. So as it would hit a bump it would contact the frame around it and make the clunk. So make sure that it's straight and that the nut around the adjustable part of the joint is tight. We did both of that and now the jeep sounds great, by that I mean no noise except for my hitch mounted tire carrier making some noise only on big holes. So far i'm happy with the RC X lift. I was really pissed off at first with the clunk but now that i figured out what that was, i'm good. (knock on wood). Hope that makes sense. If not, let me know and i'll try and take a picture of what i'm talking about and post it.

So basically the joint was making contact with the control arm mounts in return causing a clunk? Mine did that then I straitened them out and they still make the noise.

I love my HID's not cause they are crystal blue, but because they are for real a lot safer at night. I can see SO far now. I love it. I dont mind driving on a 2 lane highway at night anymore.

So if I order the 55W 9006 Bulb Type 6000K Apexcone Raptor HID Kit it will fit my factory housings? Do I need the HID Harness or Adapter Cables?
