I had to redo my under carrage lighting. The lift crushed some of my LED's. Move them to the under frame to avoid damage next time. These light only come on when I unlock or open the doors. I love them so much I had to do an encore posting. I am doing a strip of Hi-temperature in the front grill tonight.

Very easy to do. Go to the ebay link below to get them.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Cool-Whi...item4854dce3c0

Tap into the courtesy lighting such as the light under the dash and you are set to go.

I understand now. Next year I am looking to install a lift kit on my Cherokee. I need to do some research on them to decide what is best for me. I only want to do it once. Thinking of doing a 4 inch and throwing in a couple of Dana locker front and rear.

After doing this....I regret not going 4...I woulda spent close to the same amount and been higher up too...it's worth saving the extra in my opinion.

What is the max PSI of the impact wrench you are using and tank size?
