If you are talking about the lack of icons and having five of them in the dock, then yes you need to jailbreak it. Jailbreaking has its pros and cons but if you enjoy tinkering and customizing then it is worth it.

You really should these Jeeps are amazing! I loved my XJ but this one is even more fun. Especially if you enjoy being unique.

Well I am still waiting on the last bit of info which I should know Mon. So in the mean time here is an update. I got a couple of goodies in the mail today. First of which is my new 4x4 badge that was for a Ram.




I will be painting it up this weekend and apply it this next week after removing the driver side badges. It is a bit bigger than I was expecting at 9" in length. This will certainly help change the look of the rear end.


I also received some new reveres bulbs!




I spotted these a little while ago and have been wanting to give them a try. I ordered them up earlier this week and they got here fast. They are equipped with one 7-watt Q5 Cree and twelve 5050-SMD LEDs that put out a total of 880 lumens! As you can see the Q5 is equipped with a projector to fire the light straight back while the 5050s provide a spread that the reflectors will catch. I have seen some pics of the light output but I am excited to see for myself just what these will do! I will do a comparison of these and my current LED clusters this week. They also make these in amber so if I like them I might order another set in amber for the front to have more visible turns.

Those reverse lights look awesome! Did you get them on eBay? I'm curious to see the difference. I think you have eBay wheel spacers as well. Can you tell me (or pm me) the seller you bought them from?

Thanks man, your jeep is a beast.

Yes I picked them up off ebay. Here is a link to the ones I bought:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/180805027450?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p398 4.m1439.l2649


I also got my spacers off eBay but it has been too long to remember the seller. This is basically what I got except they said made in the USA which I don't see here:

1.25" for the front:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/280828158778?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p 3984.m1436.l2649

1" for the rear:

I can vow for those ebay spacers too. Put the 1.25s on mine. Awesome. They're solid. And hubcentric

Everyday, something new you want to do. Disease of Jeeps.

I hooked them up to a battery in the garage and man these things are bright! These most definitely have more distance than the ones I have now.






Once it gets dark I am taking them outside for another test.

Thanks man, I ended up ordering the same ones before I got a chance to check back here. I went 1" all around. Do you think that will be enough for the front? I was thinking about getting the 1.25" but I didn't want them sticking out. I have the stock 17" chrome moduflex wheels with 255/75 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains.

To be honest I am not sure. I have never messed with the stock wheels except for right after I bought it, but as soon as my lift went on so did the Moabs. With the 255s I would think you would be fine though. I was running 255s with .25" spacers and the Moabs with minor rubbing.

I didn't get around to testing the bulbs again once it got dark so I will have to do that tomorrow. However I did get my skid design drawn out onto the aluminum! I will cut it out tomorrow.

It will cover from the lower radiator support to the bottom of the bumper. Basically the entire lower grill. If you look a couple pages back you will see where I started the project.

I haven't installed them yet, but yes they will plug right into the rear socket.
