your fuse block looks like a marine type. any heat build up in the center console form all this?

am doing something similar. 4 gauges wire and big fuse to a fuse block (30amps max x6) with relays for each fuse in the engine bay. the the same switched to the ledge behind the steering wheel.
I have not had a chance to get pics of the lights on. Ill post when I do. Ill have to get back to you on the heat, I have not run the lights for too long yet.

Reminder, Before welding to the inner rear fenders, remove the sound deadening material in the wheel wells... That crap stinks!

Looks like you had some fun. Great videos and pics! Love the WJ!

To cut them I used a grinder and cutoff wheel. For the rear fenders, I folded the edges back and welded them to the inner wheel well. After that I spread on some black urethane (its like a caulking), it's important because we burned some holes through the wheel well and needed to seal it back up. After that dried, I sprayed undercoating over it.

Do you still have the limited cladding that you removed? I am looking to monstaline my lower cladding and it should adhere better to that. If you wanna get rid of it I'll take it.

It was Laredo plastic cladding, and no, I threw it away.

Who needs steering stabilizers anyway

Hahahah. Serious **** ah?
Last week when I found out my tie rod ends are crap, I had a friend with me. As soon as we hit the bump, I felt bump steer so I said aloud "ahh f***, death wobble!". sure enough death wobble happened, and I've never seen anyone freak out like he did! Bracing the roof, the door, the dash! HAhahahaha soooo classic

same story with my brother, except he was a little drowsy, next thing I hear "what the _____??@#$#$!!!" And then he started laughing, so did I.

That looks like my SS when I broke mine..
