Yes right now I am just waiting for some front gear options to come out. I would LOVE a set of 4.56 gears in my diffs!!!

Thanks a lot bud! I am very pleased with how it turned out. The more I look at it though the more I think I am going to paint the plate graphite when I get home and finish up my rear end.

Looks like that SA slider saved your door back there.

Actually if you look at one of the last pics you will see the slider wasn't even touching the rock. A couple more millimeters and it would have been eating my door!

Oh My God, finally finished this thread in a week at work. I have always loved the way WKs looked but never have seen one so well modified. I also must say i am very jealous of your wheeling options. my nearest trails are both over an hour away and not nearly as senic as yours. Great build cant wait for the ARB.

Hey did you buy that arb a few pages back? I just put one on mine and I hate the amber markers on it. I'm thinking of doing some flush mount leds there but ridgid wants 200 bucks a light.

Were you just going to get rid of them and cap the holes or something?

Hi YoungGunZJ,
Here is a link to the LED lights that I purchased recently from ebay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SET-OF-2-...E:L:OC:AU:3160
Haven't received them as yet.
Here is a pic of my bar....


Cheers, Craig

Yes I did! My plans for it aren't exactly finalized just yet, I mean I don't even have the thing yet. I might just keep the signal how they are for simplicity, but my grand plans would be to replace them with 6 " units that Bright USA sells (the same company of my rear 20") The benefit with them is that i can use them as DRLs because they have a low lumen setting (DRL) and then with a flip of a switch they would kick to full power to be used as secondary fogs or off road lights. That being said i will probably just leave the markers as is because i will have enough work to do on it when I get back. Have you thought of just tinting them?

the problem with those is i don't want any amber in the bumper since i don't have it hooked up to the jeep. i'd rather use something that i would have as DRL or off road lights or fogs if i want.

ok, do you have a link to his site? i remember you telling me about him.

i could just throw a few coats of black plasti dip on them and see how that looks.

i know at some point i would like to have some extra off road lights or something there.

You can find them on Amazon and ebay. Here are the 6.5" one:

http://www.amazon.com/BRIGHTT-6-5-LE...I1SDOB1MCBDL7R

They also make 5.5" ones:

http://www.amazon.com/BRIGHTT-5-5-LE...sim_sbs_auto_5

There are cheaper LEDs out there, but they don't have quite the same features these ones do. Like I said before you can wire them in so they come on with the Jeep for DRLs (low setting) and then on the highest setting they really pack a punch for the size of the bars. The 20" I have on the rear puts out about the same amount of light as the 42" I have on the front. I would love to replace the 42" TL with the Brightt USA 45", but that sucker is expensive. $900 is a lot for an occasionally used light even if it does put out 35,000 lumens!!!

I saw those through snevey's offroad, he sells them for a little cheaper. The 5.5" is exactly what I want the only problem is 2 of those would be more then my 20" lightbar which I am just finally getting mounted.
