^^^ That's awesome man! Must steal that one and do something similar, thank you!

Swapped out some bulbs for LEDs. I did 2 different kits to cover all bulbs, and 1 white 1 blue, so I can mix it up.

The pics don't do them justice at all, they are way briter than stock. A bit strange to get used to tho, lol

Nice! Haven't done my Wj yet under the hood, but have the LED's to do it. Definitely gives tons of light when you need it. Have you tried adding a strip to the back as well? I've got one there so can find anything easily. The stock one just isn't anything close to enough light.

took all of 3 hours time and saved me 70 bucks or so by fabbing them myself instead of getting IRO's. All they cost me was some time, welding materials, and 10 bucks for a foot of 3" exhaust tube.
Good Work, Thumbsup, seems like the lower spring perch Are shhhh design,,,,

You can switch the superchips between vehicles? I thought it had to be reset(sent back to superchips) once you programmed a vehicle with it?

You can switch vehicles but the program has to be set to stock on the original vehicle it can only be used on one vehicle at a time

As long as the prior vehicle was flashed back to stock you can.

So you can just keep jumping from vehicle to vehicle? That's sick. Is it bad to flash a vehicle more than a couple times?

When they put on a snorkel, do they also water proof the spark plugs, etc? My father-in-law owned three Austin Champs and the ones with snorkels also had water-proofed everything else. When he died, I had my wreck a half year later and was never able to do anything at his estate auction. I wanted one of his Austin Champs, the one with matching body and engine serial numbers, but never got the chance. Great fore-runners to the WJ's, even though they were British.

Well was going to get the rear springs switched out, but tired, and sore. So bought groceries, cracked a beer and going to do nothing all day. At least the steering isn't all over the place now.
