Got my cargo led light mod finished up. And realized I'm too impatient to use hot glue haha.
Got these lights off amazon 16 ft. For $15 hopefully that last a while but not bad so far I'll change them with better ones if these go out.


Trimmed the tabs and the slots to put the leds lower


Got the lights cut and soldered together


Got them glued into place I used a little bit of super glue to hold them in place while I used the hot glue




And they are in

Isn't this the best mod? Definitely one of my favorite ones I have done.

All my door handles where broke so I ordered new ones and got them replaced









if anybody does this take your time with the drill and let the door panels warm up a bit if the are cold. I also didn't use washers on a lot of them because the screws wouldn't grab

My jeep started just fine as far as I know but it sounded like it had a supercharger later that day when my remote start wasnt working so I drove it while it was still cold

Hopefully you will get your bumper and idea done soon! Not to many people here on the Forums like to wait haha As far as a spare grille I remember seeing someone selling a couple on here but I can't remember his name at the moment

Well here's my idea it's based of the rigid industries grilles but they don't make them for our jeeps


Going to use 1/8th" sheet metal for the border then the expanded metal for center
