Did not realize there was that big a difference between the 99 jugs and my 98 jugs. Yours are much nicer.
I wouldn't take those rear lights very far off road...

I have a set designed so no welding or reclocking needs to take place, and should have adjustability in it to work with TC drops. Been running it in my jeep for the whole spring, lots of 4H and 4L shifting, and not an issue.

I made a set of removable front sway bar disconnects. Buy using a rear lower shock adapter that is found on 00 mustangs or so. The part could be used for a front shock adapter too. I used sway bar links from a wj, they are a double eye style link. And for the lower axle side bolt you use a 12mm grade 8 bolt with the head cut off. Drill a hole cross ways through the bolt for a pin. And double nut the bolt inplace of the factory torx boltz.

Wonder how they will hold up to dirt, water, and the usual stuff the underbelly of our rigs is subjected to? How long have you had this setup?

Here is the video from their site.

And I haven't had them long, or off road. I installed them about a week ago. Where they are mounted seem to be pretty safe. They have a sticky back plus screws. I'd advise getting longer screws though.. I still need to hide the wires better in the rear.

But I like them. And the cops don't seem to mind either. They are bright enough to see what's under me and where tires are going and such, but not too bright. In md the law says under glow can't be seen more then 500 ft in front of or behind. And only mentions blue and red. We'll see haha

Yeah, nice. I have the jeep's hardtop on right now, and it has an interior light. I'm thinking this series of linked LED truck bed lights would be a great set-up to run along the roll bar for interior lighting when I'm using my soft-top or safari top. Hard to see anything in the tuffy console or rear storage boxes at night. Just a simple white light, none of the candy-colored lighting that seems so popular on that site.

They are way bright. And I think would be over powering. If I were to do interior lighting from these guys, who have good customer service and fast shipping, I would get solid white led tune lights and just wire them to a switch
