Man... idk about you guys but cigs+gas ain't a good combo, I don't care what they say on Youtube. I'll never find out though cause i dont let cig smokers within 20 feet of my Jeep just for the sake of smell...

As for my under $100 job... I took the front roof rack bar for my XJ and pulled it off. Got two sets of baja lights from wally world for $40 total. Spaced them equally and then I drilled holes through the metal of the bar and mounted the lights. Smaller holes next to them drilled out and lined with a rubber grommet each let me thread the wires through the bar. Add a little bit of wire loom b/w back of light and bar and end result is a clean looking inexpensive, professional looking light bar for your Jeep. As for grounding, I grounded each light to its mounting bolt through the bar, and the bar to the roof rack at the torx screw in the front holding on the plastic end cap. Power Wire runs through drivers door jamb insulation and under the trim, all is covered in wire loom

here it is on top my XJ:

I'm very interested in this.

Where did you buy what?!?

while i agree with wbrett1027, his explanation was.....lacking. (don't get your panties in a bunch, i'm not trying youuuu)

the auto-ignition temperature of gasoline is ~280*C. That means in perfect conditions, if gas (liquid or vapor) comes in contact with a surface that is ~280*C, it will ignite.
Real world testing shows auto-ignition temperatures to be several hundred degrees higher.

A typical butane lighter (big) has a flame with reaches 1977*C.

So yes, a lighter will ignite gasoline (liquid or vapor). But as mythbusters proved in an episode, the cigarette itself will not ignite gasoline liquid, but it will ignite the vapors.

SO NO SMOKING AT THE PUMP

*disclaimer* gasoline gives off vapors, which explode, don't try this yourself, just watch mythbusters

I never said anything about "No Smoking." I think you got the wrong number.

Please try again.

I guess you missed it the first time I pointed it out to you. THERE IS NO 'E' IN THE WORD USING. GOT IT? So before you get all high and mighty on someone, try remedial English.

So, aside from this silly lighter arguement,

I went to the junkyard and found an autodim mirror out of a Dodge dakota (the same one they used in the grand cherokees) I bought that for a slim sum of $5 and hooked it up to the old mount. Splice the wire w/ green stripe onto the wiring harness above the roof onto the white w/ black striped wire and the black wire to the black wire in the harness. I capped off the purple one because I saw no use in hooking up a wire that turns off autodim while you're in reverse

I was going to tell you to grow up, then I checked your profile and realized your age so it obviously makes perfect sense now. Your mother should have swallowed her mistake but unfortunately didn't and now its too late...and to think...out of all those other little swimmers you were the one who made it through.

Awww is the newb angry because I made him aware of the fact that he's slow? Perhaps you should educate yourself. You see, that way you just might look more credible in an argument.

Oh and while you're all brave n' stuff... How about you shut me up?
