Practical but functional within reality. You've given me some good ideas. I like what you've done to the exhaust. I'm going to paint mine now because it looks a lot better.
pactical and jeep don't go in the same sentence if you're refering to it as a DD but i know what your talking about. i'm currently saving up for either a tummy tuck, or a bumper and winch, or sye and tom woods shaft. idk what is next on the list... time and money two things i wish i had more of. good luck with your build

well i guess badlands is out unless i get a 4wheeler.


Good news is I got my 1.25 body lift and motor mount lift in, and I should have both my diff covers in soon.... now just gotta find time to put em in.

Thanks man. You know if you're going with the tummy tuck you will need the SYE and woody shaft before hand right? The way the TT works, your driveline would be thrown all off without it. I just got my bumpers on order so I'll be putting them on soon and the TT is coming soon. I'm working on the exhaust today. Anyways, good luck and throw some pics of everything on the site.

huh... nope i was under the impression that 4" was the gray area for LJ (3" suspension + tummy tuck) and 5" was sye for sure. I thought I would be okay with a body lift, motor mount lift, and a tummy tuck. guess sye moves up on the list.... i hate the look of the damn shovel

I put in the delta crossbars tonight, look pretty good. A lot brighter than stock but they are very narrow. I knew they would be when I put them on but they are much brighter especially the brights. right now the bezels i painted are drying so pics of them installed will be up 2moro hopefully. Drove around and adjusted them as well as i could, i think they are about right.(not blinding oncoming traffic.

they were a pain when i installed them in my bro in laws jeep, so i took out the whole housing out to make it easier.

you can definently see farther down the road especially with brights huge difference

but the beam pattern is much more narrow than stock, doesn't shine as far to the left or right of the jeep, even after lots of adjusting. For example while driving through my neighborhood to see how high they were shinning on the parked cars i drove by, in this curvy part i couldn't even see the curb unless i turned on my fog lights. great for going straight down a road, can't see as far into the ditches. I used to drive with my fog lights on all the time but it looks weird now because of the large color difference.

if you want i can borrow my sisters camera and take some pick of them on the street and against the garage. (my cellphone prolly wont work nearly as well)

k i'm gonna go outside and snap some pics, the cut off line is sweet. perfect for an HID upgrade and i want to get HID driving lights to. but maybe i'll swap out the fogs for silver stars for now.

hopefully up in under 30min

k so it was more like an hr and not 30min battery need a little juice
stole my sis's camera i suck at taking picks, just put in on manual so it wouldn't auto adjust or watever.
sorry some are blurry its cold outside and my tops off.

color contrast

stock fogs

delta lows

delta highs



the best shot i could get of how narrow they are and how much the fogs help, hard to see but you can easily tell with ur own eyeballs,
no fogs

and fogs

you can actually see the curb on the left with the fogs w/o fogs its really tough to see the curb. and you can see the mail box

Your welcome, they got sweet distance, but windy dark roads need fogs for sure. The more lights the better
