Ok before I post the pics just know I was in a hurry last night so the pics are bad!

What I have been running. It is a 63 LED cluster.



This is with the revers lights on pointing straight back at a garage door about 15' away.



Notice how there is a decent spread coming out the sides, but they don't have much distance. I was getting more red tail light glow off the doors than white (or blueish LED) light. Granted these LED tail lights are quite bright!



This was me standing on the roof shooting down.




Now this is with the new bulb installed in the passenger side. Shooting from the passenger side. (new bulb)



Shooting from the drive side. (old bulb)



Notice the very defined projection of light coming from the passenger side completely over powering the red.



From the roof.



Looking at the rear.




Then I installed the new drive side bulb. (New bulbs on both sides)





From the roof.



Then I repositioned and shot across the street. This was before with just a street lamp to the left.



And with the reverse lights on.



Shooting down the passenger side.



And lastly this is my shadow as I stood in the road about 30" behind the Jeep.




I would say these are worth every penny!!! It is like having headlights in the rear! Not sure how often I will need to use my aux back up lights now.

How's that!

Sorry I haven't had much chance to check in on these build threads... Between work, class, and my own build - I've been kept pretty busy. I'm glad I got a chance to finally drop in and see what my old mentor has been up to! haha. Every time I drop in, I find something new that I'd like to do. The sliders look fantastic on the WK... especially coughkhakicough hehe.

I'm finally getting mine put on this weekend - looking forward to that. I'm also going to be working on 2 other mods while at Sal's.

Yeah, going to have to pick these up! You may have posted it before, but where did you get these and how much did they run you? Maybe their official name again would be a big help - looks awesome!

Oh that place! I guess I will venture over there


In case anyone cares, this is how I routed my TB ground wire. I used the lower driver side bolt and ran the wire up the back of the TB, then along the wire harness to the fender.

What type of connectors are those on the end of the ground wire? I've seen them before but don't know the name. Do you just attach the fender end of the ground to any part on the fender?

Does the throttle response even improve with the ground wire over a programmer? Don't you have one? I'm getting an intune so I'm not sure if I should do/need this or not.

Looking awesome as usual!
