Well here is today's pile of new parts. I also received my putco h4 harness but it's still at the leasing office for the apartment complex I live in, Which closed before I came home from work .

I had finally got around to installing my AutoPal E Codes and Putco H4 harness today, It took me about an hour to install the harness and Headlights along with adjust the headlights. I never took any before shots because it was an after thought. Here's the pics of me Putting the Jeep back together and Light output. The lights are noticbly brighter and more white even with the Autopal 55/60watt bulbs which I've read that the bulbs suck. Once they burn out I'll install some Piaa Xtreme White bulbs. Sorry for the poor quality pics I had took them with my cellphone since the battery's for my camera are charging

Yesterday I had ordered my Rock sliders form Terry at Rigid ( www.rigidco.com ) They only ran $200 and no shipping since I am local. Once I get them I am going to spray them with Napa's 4004 Stone guard, along with the body below the molding

This is what they look like: (Pics are from Tery's site)

The easiest way I can explain how bright they are would be The low beams are brighter than the stock Hi Beams. But be warned I also have a Upgraded H4 Headlight Harness . If I remember I will take some pics at night tomorrow to give you an idea of the light output.

I had talked to Terry from Rigid today, He said my sliders are welded together, All he has left to do is clean up the welds, An treat them with chemical that leaves a Zinc coating, He said they will be ready for pick up on friday. I will pick them up on Saturday after I get off of work I won't have time to do it on friday. I should have them installed by the end of next month after my Lift gets installed. In other news I might order my new wheels tomorrow If my wife gives me the ok I will have them installed Saturday while at work !

I bought the 4.5" RE coils from Mudflaps last week. $80. Free shipping. Not too bad.
