What size lights did you use for the front turn signals? I need to get something better for my metalcloaks than the small leds that I got with them.

I'm finally getting back into my Jeep build. I'm driving the Jeep back to Omaha tomorrow and going to finish the build there (I purchased a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited for a daily driver here). I'm planning on buying a HP D30 this weekend and ordering cromoly shafts....but I'm stuck on a locker. The Jeep won't be a DD, so I'm thinking the Detroit is the best option....thoughts?

I have no experience with lockers so I can't help you there, but I sure would love to see some more pictures of the Jeep. It is definitely an inspiration for my Jeep.

Nice jeep, can I see some pics of how the NV4500 looks inside the cab? I really want one but I don't want to butcher anything up too bad.

I covered the places we had to make cuts with doublesided insulation and a sealer, so I can't post pictures

I just ordered Savvy Corner Armor (great customer service by the way) & Currie Disconnects. I've also found a HP Dana 30 from an XJ guy (PowerLine Auto) in Omaha. I already ordered the Riddler cover from Rokmen (another great shop) and am going to put a detroit and cromolys in it. I've also been considering RCVs. Part of me wonders if I should have just waited and bought a Rockjock, but I think the HP D30 will be ok with 35s if I keep my foot light. Thoughts?

Looking forward to watching this progress...As far as the hp30 goes, it seems like alot of people are making em work on 35s. Chromo shafts or RCVs would be a solid call.
