What LED mount did you use? How did you wire it in the Jeep?

Looks good!

I used the JCR mount, you can use their light or Rigid, etc. The bracket has oval holes on the top, for different lights. The light came with all the wiring and relay but, I cut the wires near the relay and wired the light myself to the switch panel. Here is the link to the bracket...

OX lockers are very nice. I had the electrically actuated version in my last TJ.

I was drawn to OX because I can screw in the drive away lock. How did your locker perform?

It worked perfectly. Locked and unlocked very fast and stayed locked. What more can you ask for right!?

I'm willing to bet you will. My buddy loved the Ox in his 8.8 as well.

I had an OX when they first came out and loved it . The cable was the only weak spot as it needed regular adjustment , but with the air setup that is moot .

I can't wait to try it out. But I have to break my gears in first. Plus I haven't mounted my 35 ' s yet because I am waiting on the wheels. So it drives like I am in 4 low all the time and 4 low feels like I could pull out the biggest tree stump in the world out.

Good luck you will love it. Just keep the cable in adjustment and gets some graphite cable lube at a motorcycle shop to keep it nice for a long time.

He's running an air actuated setup. No cable.

Install a TeraFlex Hand Throttle Kit, Easy install.
I also added a Kentrol Windshield Tie Down Kit, my bumpers kept coming off, these bolt in and added a Dorman Windshield Washer Nozzle Kit, I wanted 2 nozzles instead.
