The rear coils and springs aren't in yet. That's why the rake is there.

Ah. I was about to say those must be some really high rate coils and you must be really light.

Nevermind.

Rock lights came in today back home. 20 Cree 3W LED lights. 12 are mine and 8 are for a friend.

Just want to say to those that opposed them, the strobes came in very handy tonite. Came across a couple stranded in the middle of the major road up here so I pulled up and asked if they needed help. Needed a tow home so I pulled in front to hook up. Strobes were great for awareness until RPD showed up to block the street for me.

Strobes are a good thing for some, have had them on my last few trucks and have some on the shelf for my jeep, just need to get a controller. What controller are you using?

Hey man, the jeep is looking great! Where did you buy the reverse LED's for your rear rampage bumper? I have both the front and rear rampage bumpers and would like to do something with LED lighting in both. Right now i have had the bumpers on my jeep for about a year and a half now, and i have never installed lights in the rear bumper. As for the front bumper i installed the "fog" lights that are specifically made for the bumper but i have grown sick of them, they don't really help that much even when there isn't fog. I was just searching on google and found the thread you started here on the forum specifically about the LED lights. They look great and look much better than the others. Any info would be great!

These:
http://www.amazon.com/Backup-Reverse...ight+10+global

But they are strictly backup lights. They throw some good light to see to back up but that's about it. They would be completely useless as actual lighting, especially in the front. Mine are held in with a large amount of electrical tape. I was going to build some brackets for them, but they are so solid as it is I never got around to it.

Not sure what you've seen so I'll leave some pics for you.

I'm not sure if this is old news or not because I don't keep up with your build thread but I think I saw your jeep on the Chive today....
