Has anyone set up a marker light behind their Metalcloak "M" on their front fenders? I am trying to find a light that will work and fit behind it. Preferably something I can flush mount right behind the plate.

Check out harbor freight, they have a bunch of light. I am going to run marker lights behind the W's on my bumper

No luck on that end...This is the closest thing I could find

I need something that is about 2.5"x1.5" in order for it to fit behind the plate with the "M".

Why not just build something? Put a clear lens behind the "M", fab a little box to hold a light socket. Put some reflective **** on the inside.

That's most likely what will happen, if I plan on doing that....I was really just trying to drill the two holes needed to mount a lens, but I don't want to hack up everything on those fenders

There's no need to hack up the fenders. Find a lens of some sort that will fit reasonably tightly with pressure. Fab a small box with two mounting tabs. Pinch the lens between the box and the "M" cutout, then bolt/screw/rivet/duct tape the box to the fender so that it pinches the lens between the box and "M" cutout. You could even put that little corner marker you have now on the outside of the box so it points outward more toward the side, vs. where it's pointing kinda down right now.

I'm going to figure something out, this isn't something I NEED to do. Just an idea I had.

On another note, looks like another 10" of snow is headed this way within the next few days...better fill the Jeep up today. Too bad I filled the car up yesterday.

I need to get my exhaust done so I can drive mine off my road before that hits.

Wow, awesome jeep man! It's come a long way.

There saying 18" here in Traverse over the next couple days should be fun!

Eh. There's usually way to much snow to actually wheel any of the trails. I'm just up for the weekend to snowboard.

Do you go to school up there or something? I might go to Petosky, just because I might visit a person up there
