i believe you can get away with 100 watt lights if not checked. and i believe you can not run lights on the hood or roof rack unless offroad. i run my lights on the back roads and i am soon upgrading to ipf high performance 7" 100 watt lights.

Technically, you can't have any more than four lamps (headlights plus two auxiliary) lit at any time on the road. Headlights are supposed to be 24-54 inches from the ground. Fog lamps are supposed to be 12-30 inches from the ground. Nothing is explicitly stated about wattage, but rather the aim of the beam.

Reference Mich vehicle code: Section 257.685; 696; 699

~~~
Today's Jeep work: Painted the axle, made set up bearings. Going to give it a few days to dry, then it's time for some new gears.

Are your off road lights DOT certified for on road use?

Here you guys go to show you a better picture of my wheel spacers. I may have accidentally shown you earlier a picture of them without them on.

They are actually Dodge Nitro rims. I just put the jeep cap in the middle. Here is a picture of a nitro with them, but mine are painted black.

nice man. to post pictures you have to have a photobucket.com upload the pictures their and then copy and paste the image link.


to the thread i got a hi lift jack from my girl friend for christmas it was a early gift and i got a warn winch cover for my warn winch from my parents. and alot of other stuff that isnt related to the jeep. lol clothes. hope everyone have a good christmas.

i think i am going to start looking for lower adjustable control arms. should i buy new from iro or should i look for used?
