Get the 3M undercoating in the green can.....at least that's what I was told by my body guy. It was 8 bucks a can, and one can wouldn't have done it, so I'm glad I bought two.

Jeff I'd stay away from tube flares unless your going full corner armor. One rub against a tree and your tub will give before the flare.

Jeeps looking great by the way

Jeep looks good. How many miles do you have on your MTRs?

It's got to be around 20,000 or so. They are starting to get a bit louder.

Rear 4'' Xenons like ive been telling you? Upgrade the hardware from the crap the factory uses. Also use 3M backing tape if u want a close fit. I use 303 Protectant on mine to keep em lookin good.

Yes. rear 4'' Xenon flat flares for TJs. 4x4groupbuy has the best price. Then I got 4wd or 4wp to match the price and they had better shipping. You gonna paint the access panel or leave it shiny? Looks like a good place for a sticker haha.

I did the JK signals tonight.

Things went really well........for the first one.



I think I got them pretty even. I made a template off the first one and taped it in place for the second one.

I didn't have to remove the headlights, but I removed the rings to make sure I could see behind the headlights, so I didn't drill into something. I fed the stock wiring in from behind in a pre-existing opening.

It turned out pretty good. I painted the exposed metal black, to prevent rusting.



The drill kicked back on me on the second one.....causing a few scratches to the grill..... Oh well, I'll get some touch up paint, it's not a show Jeep.

For the side markers I just used the stock bulb. I pushed it through the holes the MC LED's go into, and they snapped right in.



I don't know if this will be the final set up, but if works out, it'll stay. It was free.



I painted the housing the bulb sits in black. I also painted the yellow bolts black.

The lights look pretty even.



I like it. Well, except for the scratches I caused. I've often contemplated painting the grill black, but for now I'll just get some color matched touch up.

The hole thing took less than an hour.



Edit 1/3/14: For the record, I used a 3 1/8" hole saw.
