Well this was done yesterday actually... but I finally had my retrofitted HID headlights installed (I started this project back in October when I bought this WJ for my stepdad).

The projectors are courtesy a 350z. The retrofit was done by my buddy Josh @ http://izntrbl.vstore.ca/index.php/c...tor-headlights. This was his first Jeep retro; he mainly works on J-bodies (cavaliers/ sunfires/ etc...), but he's dabbled in other cars. I'm fairly pleased with the results; mind you, I think they looked better before I installed the x-pel headlight film (it's pretty thick stuff)

Drove it to work and got some new noises from the locker...so won't be driving it until this weekend when I can tear it back down.


Found out Paragon adventure park is dead meat, they were not granted their appeal so they will be forced out of their lease any day now.

Knew I should of built up the vette instead

Well today, I got the lift kit, shocks, and tires installed (I know, useless to say it without pics...tomorrow morning I get pics), and learned that before the lift and tires, my speedo was off 5mph. Now it's off 10.

When I was at stock height and replacing my liftgate struts, a 6' ladder worked better than a helper
