Zip tied my soft top windows shut to keep the dbags at school out. I can use a razor blade to undo the ties when I take the window off so I don't have to cut them and waste them.

Sold my bumpers and tire carrier for a nice $125. That will go towards a Redline shift boot and maybe Tuffy under seat lock box.

I did the same thing you did with your lights back in the summer. A few months ago I wired up all the LEDs into the wiring for the courtesy lights under the dash so every time you open the door the lights come on and you can turn it on with the multi switch on the steering column. Put a blue LED in the roll bar and probably going to put more in the back. I have the LEDs in the gauge cluster and HVAC.

That's a brilliant idea to put them behind the 4x6 speaker grill. So doing that

Will do. And for the rails, I'll probably just stick them directly on the tub.

That probably won't last long. I stuck mine on pieces of wood trim and stuck tge wood trim on with double sided tape. Both adhesives no longer stick well.

I would use black zip ties and go through the holes along that rail. I did that for the sub wires since I have no carpet to hide wires with my jeep being rhinolined

Yea, I'll see what I can come up with. I want to play around with the angles of the lights first to see where's the best spot to mount them.

Half the reason I used the trim. Puts it at a nice 45 deg angle.
