So here are the photos from the rock light install.

Started with the light pods which I received from Miner49er and went to town. The lights are LED pods that are made to go in to stop lights. They have an aluminum housing that first needed to be drilled out, first with a small bit and then with an 11/16 bit in order to slide a nut and washer inside the holes. I then used some angled aluminum from Home Depot and made little brackets to mount the lights to existing bolts under the tub.

Got half way done one night with Sparrows help and finished the next day with Turbineguy.

Ran the wires from the battery to a relay then from the relay to my on/off switch and then back to the battery. The ran the wire from the relay for the accessory down to the first light on the drivers side front. Tapped both lights into the lead line and the ran the lead line across the front of the jeep to the pod on the passenger front which then was tapped into for the passenger side light. I soldered the wires together in the front for a strong hold and ran the wire in flex tube and then through the frame to come out to the sides.

I have not placed any lights in the rear just yet as to see when the rear bumper is built where the best place for them will be. But it turned out pretty sweet.

Last night installed the Quadratec rear cargo liner but now cant get the rear seat to lock in to place.

Also installed my new poison spyder hood louver just as a snow storm started rolling through. The Rubicon is starting to look like my jeep, finally. 

Loved working on the hood of my rubicon on top of a Barbie Jeep box.

Thanks Sparrows for all your help!

What Qtec said about the rear liner

the rear liner you can move around until you get the seat to lock down. the liner will then form to the lock fitment when the seat is down.
guess ill keep trying.

So here it is, got it to work. With the rear cargo liner in and the rear seat attached with the front hooks I pulled the mat towards the rear of the jeep.

Then while the rear seat was in the "tumble" position I leaned it back far enough to put the seat in the upright position, so the seat is leaned forward but stood up like it will be when attached to the floor.

This still left the rear hooks open and does not trigger the latch until it engages. by grabbing on to the the top of the seat between the head rests on the rear seat and keeping the mat underneath taught i slammed the seat down and it latched into place without any additional cutting needed.

Sometimes its just the little things you guys. haha Stoked they fit and work. Now cant wait to get the carpet out in the spring. haha

Got the Bully Dog GT Tuner and with a little help from spudmedic got it installed. Came with a fuse tap but opted for a better solution to tap it in to a keyed fuse. Had to drill a small hole in the fuse box housing to feed the wire through and will touch it up with some silicone to water tight it. This is really cool and the performance output is greater than my superchip flashpaq. Can really feel it especially from a take off. Look forward to seeing how it works on the trail.
Heres pics. Even the packaging is awesome.
