Yo that info on the wj stuff if you wanna do it on a budget. Use a factory tie rod and draglink from a wj. The o.d of the tie rod is 1.375 and there is a common pipe size with 1.375 as an I.d to sleeve it with after it is cut down and re welded back together. The drag link is 1 inch o.d which is also easily sleeved . Thats the cheapest way ive found.

PILLAR LIGHTS

I got my mounts done today. They still need some work but, this is what I have so far.

Pull the weather strip and the metal dealey with the 4 screws in it. You wanna mount the light mounts to to actual A-pillar, not over all the weatherstripping.

I used 1" angle for the body side but needed to trim it. I would recommend 3/4".

I tapped the bolt holes, they hold GREAT.

The welds are UGLY.

Im gonna get smaller lights soon. These look like big 'ol elf ears or some ****.. They arent anything fancy but they work well and the price was right. Im happy with the mounts.
