I was editing while you were posting , read above . Do you have a Fastenal near you ? If so they sell the old style Lenox hole saws under their house brand . They last the longest and dont get hung up like the new Lenox hole saws do with the large plug removal hole on the side .

I could do that but I like the look of having turn signals there and I might need them in the future if I get stationed somewhere else that has a strict law on that

I am not a metal cloak fan , but those look good on your jeep . The extra up travel is a nice side bonus .

Lovely side bonus . I came to realize I will be needing to adjust my bumbstops alittle, my front shocks bottom out before I hit my bumbstop roughly by half an inch.
In time I'm going to get longer shocks and outboard the front as well.

I ordered my JK parking lamps and found out my gear wont be shipped until next week.

I figured I would try to list some of the few mods I need to do.
1. upgrade steering
2. Replace frt CA's with currie control arms
3. outboard frt and rear shocks 10frt 12 rear
4. level spring perch in rear with outboard
5. build 4 link rear
6. plan out 3 link frt

These dont need to be accomplished at any particular time. I might start after my trip to moab, maybe knock off one and two before the trip.
