No, I didn't do a write up for the front blinkers. I also haven't replaced the side markers yet. That will come when I purchase and/or fab up some tube fenders. For the front turn signals, I made a template on the computer to the exact dimensions, then traced it onto the front clip and used a body saw to cut it out. Went very smoothly and the grommets allow for some error.

I finished the body lift recently, now I just need some new shoes. Running ~3.5" of lift on 235/75R15 is a funny looking stance. Right now it measures out at almost exactly 22.5" to the rocker. That's just about 3.5" of lift with 1" extra for the 235's vs 205's.

Blacked out my headlight bezels yesterday. They now match my turn signals and I love it.

Thanks for the kind words guys. Got some more parts in the mail today, replaced the steering wheel with a 1" smaller wheel (diameter) thats a bit thicker than stock. It fits my large mitts quite well. The draglink needs to be adjusted to center the steering wheel, but I love it. Had to spend the extra $15 and get a MOPAR horn button

Lookin' great. I like all the extra lighting you put on. You plan on putting some TJ flares on? How big of a tire do you want to run?

I'm lookin to skip flares altogether and go straight to flat fenders. Also aiming for 35's (Preferably Kumho KL-71) on a set of American Racing AR-23's. I think they look sexy.

What location did you use? I'm torn between using the TJ location, or just putting it in a suitable place in the YJ body. The reason I would use the TJ location is to eventually use TJ corner guards and/or TJ flares in the rear.

Not much of an update, but I switched back to the NP-231 for winter. I have 4x4 and RWD again... running in FWD sucks so much in a jeep. I don't have a speedometer though, because its a 231 from a chevy.

Also ordered a set of Cragar V-5's in 15x8 ... very soon I'll be on 35's. For half the price of the AR-23's, I couldn't say no. Plus I decided to go with black wheels.

I like the wheels. What tires did you order?

Those V-5s are sweet. I almost pulled the trigger on a new set then found a set of 5 D-Windows on Craigslist for a steal and got them instead. Black wheels on your white YJ will look sweet.
From the pics you will need more lift and/or tubes to fit 35s.
