Rust Oleum Brand from autozone.. Its more of a textured paint and less of a bed liner but i love the stuff, gives me a none slip finish.

Got the axle installed today! It put up a fight trying get it all aligned up but I finally got it all hooked up. The clicking of the locker isn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Actually they're Hella 530 fogs, the 550s wouldn't fit in the bumper. The 530s are $99.99 on Qtech

Thanks man you too. Yeah I bought 550s to go on the back of my rack and before I installed them I did a test fit for the fogs.. they would fit just not on the given light tabs. The 530s fit on the tabs but they are a little more close to the inside then I would like. I might make a bracket later that mounts them a little more outside.

I've been wanting off-road lights for my bumper for a long time now except I never knew what is good. So those Hella 530 & 550 sets are really good for the money? I don't like to buy junk, but I don't necessarily like to throw my money away either.

Oh I agree but yeah I love Hella. I cant really give you a review on the 550s or 530s at the moment.. I haven't really used the 530s yet and the 550s are on the rear of the rack, they do give off a lot of light though but more in a direct beam which would probably be better for a front facing light. I love the Rallye 1000s so far they are the best lights i have as well as the brightest. The 500s are a good broad beam but aren't that bright. I mean I just personally like Hella, So yeah if your looking for a recommendation then yeah I recommend them. But if your going for some easy lights to install and buy then go with KC. Hella gets a little expensive when your going for specialty lights cause they normally sell the lights and the wiring separate.

Why? You seem capable enough to use the airspace in the right 1/4 panel area. There's about the same amount of airspace in that spot as what you're building.

Yeah I know but I want it on that side of the Jeep and I want to do something else on the right side like a compressor or a fire extinguisher, not sure yet. But yes I did think about doing that, this just seemed easier.
