So if i had to do it again i would get a more projector style lense to kind focus the beam pattern. either way its a world of a difference.
I have the Hella E code housings so all is well. If you could PM me the details on how to get that kit (preferably at a nice discount), I would be thankful.

im running stock mounts. Fox makes the upper mounts to fit factory and the lower bar pins from fox are twice as beefy as the stock ones. Ive yet to break one.

Imped i was given the Galmax HID h4hi lo kit. there prices are pretty insane. My friend thats an editor for a few offroad mags uses DDM tuning on his prerunner. hes had them for over a year with one ballast issue. DDM next day aired him a new one.

http://galmaxcorp.com/v2/osc/index.php i asked my friend about a hook up and he said he cant do it. sorry man.

http://www.ddmtuning.com/index.php?p...parent=85&pg=1 these are much more affordable. I will be swapping to 5k bulbs too. the 8ks are a liittle too blue for me.

a note on the led lights, i had to swap out the flasher for a led flasher, with fornt and rear led the stock flasher made a buzzing noise and did nothing. 30 bucks from No Modification '01-'06 TJ LED Flasher came in 2 days and works perfect

I take it that Yellow LED is a Rear fog? More info on your tail lights please!

You have your Jeep Setup the way I plan on getting mine! I want to be able to run sand, mud, and rocks. Sweet videos btw!

I took the jeep out last night to a clean-dezert.org fundraiser. pretty funny seeing my jeep parked next to a class 1 at the show. they had a offroad truck show amd we watched dust to glory on the big screen.

the new HIDs and rear lights are extremely bright. last night was the first time i had the jeep out in a while.
heres where i picked up my lights. the price is for the pair. i didnt know that and bought 2 pairs. originally i was just replacing my flatbed trailer lights lol.
Super Bright LEDs - Submersible LED Trailer Lights

the rear dust light i picked up from dezertnation.com like rubic03 said. its for when we are out and the dust gets bad. its saved us from a few bad collisions a few times now. deffinataly a must if you and ur buddies want to go fast

I was cleaning up the frame and noticed 2 cracks on the upper shock mount..... hard to see in the pic but theres 2 crack about 1inch long. i plan on welding up the cracks then plating it. should be better then new when done. i dont know why they cracked............... hahaha im suprised it hasnt happened sooner

Ouch. Probably from jumping and the rough desert running.

Sounds like you need to fab up some thicker ones

(Any excuse for some more fantastic fab-work!)

I talked with T&T about a truss for the jeep but IMO they just want too much $$ they make a really nice product but i cant justify 300 bucks on a truss. I went to the shop today and dropped off the dana 30. Ill hopefully have some metal welded to it by the weekend.

heres a pic of some templates i was cutting out for it.
