Well I kinda like the hood scoop, Ill probabily get it whenever I order the lights. Im going with the KC Slims and that same scoop on the white jeep or one similar. It Should be fun finding a can of chrysler steel blue metallic paint. I bet a small bucket cost more then the scoop itself.. blah

Awesome thread guys! I will admit I am new to Jeeps and actually am still in search of my own. But for Xmas I want to buy my brother some KC Daylighters, brackets, and stone guards to mount on his windsheild and these pics all look great! I am not really sure how I want to run the wires yet though so could you guys maybe snap some close up shots with how you routed the wires and where you had to drill (if you had to)? Thanks from this newb....

Functional hood-scoops. Originally put in for snorkel-effect, but, found that water still poured in through there. Now just for cooling (forces air down the back of the engine) and looks. Two turbo Firefly inter-cooler scoops - one from a wrecker, one I had to buy the whole car to get ...

Silver 2006 TJ Unlimited, zombie ready as the daily-driver
how did you get the brackets that color, did you just paint them with a brush and the touch up paint?
I can't speak for the original poster, but I would recommend paintscratch.com. It is the exact match. When I first bought the Jeep there was a nick on the grill. The dealer gave me a bottle of traditional factory touch-up paint. It was night and day. When I did my mirror relocation brackets I wanted to repaint the bolts and bought a 2oz. touch-up bottle. It was perfect. They recommend getting the clear coat (and I did), but you don't need it. My color is Flame Red.
A few quick questions:
1. Is there a true purpose of the light or is it more for looks? I don't plan to do any night wheeling and they are useless on-road. If you have a set of windshield lights, how often do you use them?
2. What type of light do you use and why? Wattage? Brand? Slims? Driving, Fog, Long Range?
Finally, to those of you who are planning this project, be very careful with the windshield bolts. For a 2005 TJ, I had a heck of a time getting them loose. In addition the windshield frame is not tapped. There is a backing plate behind the windshield frame that the torx bolts thread into. If you remove both bolts at the same time, there is a chance that plate can drop!
I figured it was but just wondering. I have a yellow jeep and when I bought it with black hinges all around and black relocations also so i didnt want to much black on it. It is for more offroad but i dont want it to look terrible like i explained because its my DD. I have 2 KC 100w foglights on my front bumper and i bought work utility lights for the brackets because i found them online for something like 11 bucks a light or something low and thought what the heck. They're a driving light so i figured there would be less glare. I went ahead and just left them black and they dont look too too bad which is a good thing. But i hae torx thats for sure, i had to drill out about half of the bolts holding it. Im glad thats done
