Memorial Day Weekend goodies

Finalizing the parts search for the Jeep. Mods purchased for this weekend are:

1. H&R Lowering kit
2. Rancho RS9000 XL Dampening Controlled struts
3. Airlift 1000 rear air suspension bags
4. Airlift compressor and in cabin monitoring/control
5. Window vent visors
6. Jeep OEM Slush mats
7. 120 Watt 24" 6000K Lumen LED Cree light bar
8. Flowmaster Super 44 Exhaust
9. Kinetic zinc plated Cross drilled and Slotted brakes with Ceramic Pads
10. Red Caliper Paint
11. Red Brembo Brake covers
12. ARB Rocker Switches

Lastly will be wheels. Only after I get my broken Skyslider taken care of. Got them to work with me on price at Buhler Chrysler to $1900 replacement.

Waiting for drop to determine what width spacers for OEM 18" Chrome Limited wheels for tuck.

The sound is throaty up until 2500 rpm. After that these engines do sound a bit raspy a lot of city driving allows me to keep it at that 2500 rpm

Wired this up today in the lower grill. Had to take front bumper off to secure to the front bumper support. Wiring was simple, used some rockers front otrattw. Wired up as a secondary fog and the other rocker is for my FU hid rear tail lamps. Pics of those will follow. Really looking forward to seeing the output of this light tonight.

I'm looking forward towards them. Do you have anything wired to your back up lights yet? I noticed you had a toggle for them.

I am waiting to receive pen tail light sockets. I have an h4 vixen on kit for the reverse lights. The one with two bulbs. The low beam bulb will be the reverse light and I will control the xenons with the switch. I have to wait to get the spare parts from factory because I have to fab the bulbs into the unit. Not as easy as I thought it would be. But the size of the housing for reverse lights is optimal for throw and output with the xenons. Next time people refuse to put their high beams off after a break check or two, ill flip the switch

I've only seen someone on here(forgot his name) make his euro spec by fabricating it up himself.
