I received my lights today. I'll install them tonight. Night shots will have to wait until next week when I wire them up.

Utah is so damn beautiful.


Your jeep looks great. Please keep us up on how those lights perform. I need some sort of aux lighting, my headlights just don't cut it.

Tonight I wired up the lights. They are incredibly bright. I really don't need 2 more but I can not find a reason to justify not buying more.

The very last pic is a HDR pic.

those lights look great! I am in the ogden/layton area! just barely got me a toy, a 2000 cherokee XJ. I love it! Do you get most of your stuff from Rigid? Fat Bobs Garage just opened up a store right across the street from my work, my wife wasn't very happy to find that out haha

This is from the fire road up Bountiful canyon right? I love going up there. My buddies and I love going all the way to the top and camping.

My bumper and sliders I bought from Terry Tucker @ Rigid in West Valley City
The rest of the parts I bought at work using one of our suppliers I paid cost.

I have never been to Fat Bob's but I hear good things about them. My wife did not like when I got a Job at 4 Wheel Parts in Coppell Texas a few years ago.

Welcome to JF btw, I have a thread in the Utah section for a wheeling trip New Years day feel free to join us.

Yes that was up at the B in Bountiful

The only things you'll be able to see of what's next are the diff covers all the other stuff will be on the inside of them
