I also like how the fill plug is slightly slanted upwards from what I can tell.
here ya go! Almost 2 3/4"

I hope that's just the artificial light of the camera flash. Almost looks pink. haha Thanks for measuring that for me! Looks like the Poison Spyder cover is the exact same thing with a different logo. And 2 3/4" as well. I'll order this one since JF has a vendor here selling them.

One thing though, I don't suppose you would make that same measurement for me on the stock cover after you get it off? I tried to get an accurate measurement the other day I was welding underneath my bumper, but it can be a PITA for me gimping around under there. So, if you don't mind? I'd rather get a more precise measurement with it sitting on a bench. Please and thank you!

Got the rear lights mounted and the wiring ran through the roof. Still waiting the switches so I can actually hook them up!

Got my new lights hooked up today.. Since I already have pictures of the light mounted I wont add more.. However I would like to show off my wiring, I am quite proud of it. I moved all the relays to the firewall and lined them up as neat as a could.. I also added a relay for my switches, this one was kind of an experiment for me. I liked how my previous switches were powered by the ignition wire so that I could only run the lights with the Jeep being on. Now I knew that I couldn't just keep splicing into that cable without worry about drawing too much power from it so I decided to relay it as a switch. So now all 4 switches are powered directly from the battery while keeping the ability to only turn on the lights while the Jeep is on..

Ok.. Bought a Rough Country RS9500 winch the other day. So far its been awesome. I'm really satisfied for only $300. One thing that pissed me off about installing it was that the solenoid box was a little over sized for my bumper and the way the winch is mounted inside the bumper. So I had to make some brackets for the solenoid box. I bought a piece a aluminum bent it up, drilled some holes and bolted it up. Unfortunately I also had to cut into the grille a little, cut more then I would have liked but I'm getting used to it. I actually got to really use it like a day after I got it installed and working. My friend called me up and needed me to use my winch to pull this guy out cause it was too slick for his truck to get traction so I went and the winch performed the way it should have and pulled a 98 TJ deadweight out of the mud hole with ease.

The Brackets




The Grille




And the finished product.








Oh and my bender! Well at least I found another use for it my bumper
