I just ordered the Bosch H4 e-codes and Hella 55/100 watt bulbs (78158) from www.busdepot.com. Total price including shipping was only $74.97. I can't wait to see how much better they are going to be compared to the sealed beam headlights.
Got my LED lights for the floorboard & dome light today from www.superbrightleds.com . They are basically the same size as the regular bulb, but even in the daylight the floorboard is very well lit. I can't wait to see it at night. It should be "superbright"
The floorboard has lights...I guess mine went out such a long time ago that I forgot. What were the bulb numbers for the floor and dome?

I think the part number on the bulb was 906. But if I were doing it again I would put a different bulb in the dome light. The 906 bulb that I used does great in the floorboards, but it just isn't bright enough for the dome light. Probably should have gotten that 30 LED panel that they sell.
I knew my lift was scheduled to arrive today so when I got home and the FedEx guy still had t come by the house I decided to go ahead & start the disassembly of the front.
Sure enough he finally dropped off my lift and I got started.
Everything went pretty smooth except that one of my front bump stops was deteriorated and no good. Because the spring has to be out to install the bump stop I had to stop for tonight, but the drivers side front is done.
Here is a shot of the difference in spring height from factory to the 2.5" spring.
I plan on finishing tomorrow evening if all goes smoothly. I can't wait to get it finished!
I finished up the lift last night at 11pm. I figured out while I was taking the front apart that the jeep already had a 3/4" spacer in the front, and the front still sat about a 1/4" low in the front. So I had to decide how to use the 3/4" spacers that came with the kit. I decided to just leave the spacer in the front, and add the 2.5" lift coils. In the back I didn't use a spacer, just the 2.5" lift coils. This maintained the stance it had before with the front being 1/4" lower than the back.
So I decided not to install the t-case drop until I had driven it to confirm it had driveline vibrations, and sure enough they were there so I plan on finishing that up this morning. The steering wheel was also cocked sideways after lifting it so I need to take care of that.
It's funny how just 2.5" changes the way it feels to hop in and out of the jeep. And I like it...
