I have had them about 11 years now and use them when I feel my HID's are too bright (say a low profile vehicle in front of me). They are a dual beam unit so the driving beam is nice for fog and the spot beam is nice to really light things up, however now that I have the HIDs (which are brighter) I don't really use the spot beam anymore.
How do you like the Rock Hard Cage? Fairly easy to install right?
I really like the cage. It was fairly easy to install just there are some tricks to make things easier as you go through the install. It took me about 10 hours (slow going btw, also my first time to install one) to get it in there then later I trimmed the plastic interior windshield pieces. If you continue to run roll bar padding make sure you cut small x's in the padding above your head when installing the bar above your head, if you go too big with the x cuts it won't look as nice when you are finished. Take your time tightening everything up and do it as evenly as you can for a quality fit and finish.
What are you running for a sound system? Head unit? and what are you using to power those speaker pods? Just curious cause my stereo needs upgrading soon
Alpine unit with Focal Polyglass speakers in the dash pods (CVX 100) and in the JeePods on the roll bars (CVX 165). Alpine PDX 5 (75w x 4 RMS + 300 mono) pushing the highs. I have a JL HD 750/1 mounted inside pushing the Alpine SWR T10 Sub both located in the Slimline Console which is far too much power but nice to have the option of pumping it up. Stinger wiring throughout so I included a few pics...
Pictured below is my rebuilt 4.0 engine all that's missing is the Premier Power Welder which has the tray already mounted. Motor is Hesco parts with HP oil pump and cam with Banks header and exhaust.
MCAI just installed last night and today.
Both Pods contrast Lt Khaki Metallic on the drivers side and Dark Slate Metallic on the Passenger side.
The Slimline Console, Alpine Sub paired with a JL amp.
I run different tires depending on the time of year. May through October I run the Creepy Crawlers and November through April run the studded GY Duratrecs as the Creepys are not worth a damn for winter driving not to mention they are not a DD tire. I'm not a big fan of BFG so I sold the KM2s recently while I could still get good coin out of them and try something else. The studded set of Maxxis Big Horns were finally wore out btw (and yes I have been known to have three or four sets of tires at a time... kinda like changing shoes for you or me). As for the GY Duratrecs, they are studded for snow driving and handle quite excellent.
Left to Right... Maxxis Big Horns studded 35" in size, BFG KM2's in 315 75R16 and the ones on her are the Maxxis Creepy Crawlers 35" in size (mounted on my old beadlocks, pic taken before my 5 on 5.5 Warn hub and axel conversion)... Goodyears not pictured below as this is an old picture.
Very nice Rig..Can you PM me a price on the pods and the center console? Also what rim is the one in the center? I really like it. Thanks.
Very nice build! I checked out your websight, I didn't see any prices for the speaker pods or the center console.
Hey thanks for the interest in my products. SME is currently tooling so we can offer our products at a more competitive price. Everything is hand layed fiberglass and custom built at the moment so if anyone is interested in a product or possibly a prototype design send Sierra Mountain Enterprises an email or get in contact with me.
I can only offer pricing on a per unit basis as every build is different and price is subject to the details on each unit. Once I have mass units available I will have an online store attachment on the website and will be purchasing some sort of retail/vendor status on JF.
