Also got my new light bar today. I know this build is no good without pics so ill add some when I'm at my computer. I wanted the bar to go out a little more like a stinger but I still like it and have room for a winch now!

Swapping out the brackets. Not great pics, I know. And no final shot. And random pics under my hood, must of been when I was doing oil or plugs

Got my new light bar in. I kind of wanted it to go out a little further but much better than the small one I had, and I should be able to fit a winch underneath this one

Some interior shots for those wondering how the paint has held up since march. No complaints

Today i am going to rewire my lights, had to cut the wires to raise them on the new light bar. Also I have all 4 front bumper lights on one fuse and it keeps blowing. But it didn't the first few months..Maybe I'll get the CAI in tonight. Deff going to paint my rock sliders again, the hurculine deff didn't come out like I hoped. Gonna paint it with the same paint I did my bar with. Pics to come! Also, thinking about tinting my markers..

Are you using relays with your light wiring?

Yeah, I have two relays, one for the four front bumper and then one for my windshield lights..could my relay be bad? I'm really not good at this wiring stuff, just going by what i've learned while helping wire them up the first time

Got my lights working again. Not sure what was wrong with the wiring so I just changed the wires and the fuse and bam, it worked (Im not very good with wiring). New upper doors should be in soon. Right now it's just boring mild mods but to me it's getting better an better! Not sure what big mod I want to do next

Sounds like you had a wire grounding out somewhere. Could have blow your fuses, or even burnt the wire into somewhere along the route. What gauge wires are you running?

Eh I don't know. I had a friend wire them for me as I watched so I learned where things went by just observing. My guess was what you said, I had a wire grounding out somewhere causing the fuse to keep burning out (which was what was happening) so with new wires and a different type of fuse seemed to solve it
