Got my headlights today via. Fedex. Had enough time after work to get them on .
I think they look great and are very bright. Have 4 different settings, the halos actually hook into the driving/fog lights + and - .
And the old harness out of the stock lights work right with them.
It has Just Halos, Low w/Halos Low w/o halos and High w/o halos.
Very Pleased. Made by Spec D Tuning. Dont really care if they are "Ricer" looking or not "I" think they look good.

Well got more stuff in the mail today. Tail lights, Grille, and Haynes Manual....just in case. haha
I think the Tail lights are gonna look great once they are in. Too cold and dark to do it now due to no garage....
Hope I get off work earlier to get it done tomorrow.

Got the New Rough Country Shocks and Springs on the front 4" Lift. New JKS quick disconnects also installed for the sway bar.
IROR Adjustable track bar installed too. That was the hardest part of the front. Making sure the adjustment was right.

So The front was completed around 11:00pm. First time on a lift kit never did one before so it took way longer than expected. started around 11:00am. This was all done on the Feb. 9th.

3.5" RC lift so it levels out. Look at the difference in the springs.
