Great pics as always Art. What light bar did you pick up? I just bought to 20" bars to mount on my cage. I'll be mounting them like on WideJ's rig.

Gonna aim it at a wall at the end of the cul de sac and see how it works and how bad it diminishes light output where I want to put it. It's a reject from the Amazon return department it works, has some slight damage. But was cheap

Can't wait to see how you like it. I bought some amazon lights as well. Good reviews and even better prices.

Pics of Los coyotes looks like a blast as usual buddy!

I think with the light bar there you may have issues seeing just in front of the jeep since the hood is going to block a lot of downward light and you will only get the far reach way out and up. You will know after your test though if that's the case.

Well I only want ti to light up the desert at night for trail finding. For trail riding headlights only are enough.
Otherwise all you do is blinding people.

Just played with the thing, glare is not an issue what so ever. It does limit light output a little.
Took some pics with my tablet

Headlights

KC lights got to aim those a lil better

Might just make low and high mounts and go from there. Definitely like the light it puts out

Yesterday I finished welding the last floor tabs in all drilled and bolted down.
Today started tinkering with seatbelts and put my fun Jeep back in street mode so will be driving that back to work again

Made a nice battery cable and got it secured, shortened the fuel pump wiring, still works too, go figure. Secured that also. Gonna try and finish the seat belts tomorrow. Need to make 2 shoulderbars and a a attachment point for one lower seatbelt. Going to try and secure the fuel lines to my liking and finish routing and securing the powersteering hoses. Hope to pick up some aluminum sheet to make a dash and a rear panel so I can make a basket for tools and my cooler. Seems to me that will fill 2 days. Also got a Grizzly locker and a gear install kit in the mail. Kinda cool making progress on this jalopy
