They are made by xenon. They have a blue tint to them but their classified as iceberg blue. My friend has 6000k on his wrangler and my old jeeps 8000k were way brighter and looked about the same just a small trace of blue

6000k is brighter than 8000k. 4300k is brighter than 6000k. 4300 is the sweet spot but doesn't have that flashy luxury car HID hey look at me look. Priorities

Yeah... I held both... it's the only way to get it off, otherwise it would just spin.. my problem was the not was rusted pretty good, and the bolt had been bent a little... She sure feels great now with the new SS though!!!

Well the death wobble has to end before 2-24-12. pops is coming to go on a ski trip and is taking the wj. 4" stock arms and dw go figure. Ball joints, tie rods ends, ss are all good. some play in the tb bushings and need to check the control arm bushings. Going to get this solved in the week. Also tomorrow ill be lengthening the front sway bar links.

Why not lose some lift? I'm assuming you have spacers of some kind... Isn't 4" on stock arms kinda pushing it? And my money is on the track bar bushings, I thought there wasn't supposed to be ANY, even the slightest there...

Can't loose lift, i have coils. I found some wallowed out holes, 1/2" bolts fit perfectly. Although i can't decide if i should weld on a washer and keep original bolts, or drill out the bushing sleeves on my jks tb. Any opinions?

I would not drill out the bushings unless you plan on getting new ones... I would lube and press the bolts through before I did that. I just feel like you'd still have play if you files them out...
