Finally got the gumption, and, since tomorrow's a holiday, for me, to add some FM to my rear diff, because it has been groaning on left turns. I also installed my Fog light LEDS.
They are supposed to be

"One Pair (2 Pieces): LED 18 SMDs Bulbs
H10 (Fog Light Only)
Compatible with 9145, 9140, 9045, and 9055
** Light Color: Super White 6000K **"

But they don't really look all that much brighter than my regular bulbs, just whiter. I'll know at night, I guess. I had to remove the whole fog light housing on the right side. Body shop put a junker of a fog light in there the last time they worked on it, about three years ago. I hit a big dog and he broke everything under my right bumper. I was too tired to mess with trying to drain and refill my TC fluid. I also considered swapping in my JK Moabs 255/75/17 GoodYear Wranglers, just to see how they'd fit under the wheel wells. Another day. God, I can hardly walk, now, even WITH a cane.

Continuing TAG Rock Slider Saga

So I made another attempt at getting the Rock Sliders on this morning and still no joy. The U shaped brackets are just not quite right and I am fed up with fighting with them. I got close, about 1/2", but the U brackets won't let me get the location and tightness I want.

Plan now is to cut the L shape part of the bracket off, so I will just have the plate (outboard side) the tube mounts to. I will cut another inch or so from the top of the bracket to get closer to the pinch seam - currently sitting about 2" below the pinch seam. I'd cut more but that would be getting deeper into the meat of the gusset from the tube to the mount plate.

I was also not happy with the front-to-back location the U brackets mandated due to the shape of the unibody frame rails - I had about 2" clearance from the back tire but 4 " from the front - it was more than enough to see and it was bugging me.

Once I get the cuts made I'll mock it up again.

Ha ha ha! Key in ignition turned off, then turned it to where shift lock disengaged, applied ebrake, then shifted safely into reverse, walked around back and took a pic. You have to look under the sellers other items, that's why I posted the link. I am gonna try tomorrow night and see if these will work in the turn signals and brake lights. If they work with out issues I am buying two more sets.

You'll need a couple of load resistors for the turn signals. I don't think they'll work in the brake light, as they only have one set of leads, whereas they need an extra lead for the tail light, but check the site, they might also have them for the brake/tail-light, too.
