Relocate them spots to your windshield, then put your fogs there on your bumper. You'll like the spotlights higher up off the ground.

Yep, looks mostly stock, but you gotta start somewhere.

Your front shackles are behind the front axle - right? If so, that's an SRS (shackle reversal system) and not stock on a YJ.

Some SRS kits are bolt-on while others are weld-in.

I have a bit Of rear vibrations going on after I hit 50. Maybe because I did a 4 inch w 3/4 shackles with the shackle reversal?
