Hey thanks! I wasn't sure when the wife and daughter came up with the idea, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Just put on the diff covers and also painted the muffler with high heat, header black.

thanks! Yes they are. I like them a lot, huge difference from OEM. they do flicker so I need a new harness that pulls power directly from the battery. They also have a hot spot in the center but that does not bother me. The JW Speakers are supposed be a lot smother without hot spots but I couldn't justify $300 more for them.

Cool, I've been wanting to upgrade my lights for awhile now. LED's would be nice but I may end up going with the Rallylights if Trucklights doesn't come out with another new design before then.

Love it! Were you possibly off Elm in Palatine a couple days ago? I could have sworn I saw your Jeep in that area.

Got my fenders cut. I'm really glade I decided to cut the fenders. It gives me time to do the PSC metal fenders correctly, I did not want to rushing drilling holes in the tub

A few years ago I broke a chromoly shaft and shelled my locker late in the day on a Sunday. After the cost of a hotel for the night, u-haul trailer and truck to get home. It was easy to convince the wife of the need for a trailer.

So how'd you do? I went topless on Saturday, forgot to remove the door surrounds and smashed one up on tree.

I'm loving the MetalCloak lift.

Looks awesome. Did you put your ACE rails to any heavy use? Mine have been flexing like crazy and the bolts are all torqued down properly. I was debating selling them off and getting something more sturdy. I called ACE and they said I needed to pair them with the Rubicon rails and I just noticed you have that combination. Also I don't remember if I already asked you this but what did you use to get the blue accent behind your Spyder on the bumper?
