Thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely check them out. I want to get them on asap so I can paint my wheels.

So, I've been running the 75 program and I can confirm I've seen a few mpg increase. Great news, but as soon as I add bigger tires I'm sure it will disappear. Might just opt for a performance setting and sell a little more plasma..

I just installed two sets of off road lights and they work perfect BUT only when the engine is off! As soon as i turn the engine on they shut off. Any advice?

I figured it out. just need to read their instructions closer. i installed a pair of the Warn wireless lights. they have a control module to relay to battery set up. they say to run the hot wire to the low beam headlamp for ALL vehicles except Jeeps. (thats the part i missed). When i re-wired the line directly to the battery they work. Not sure if i like that they can be turned on now when the Jeep is off but oh well.

I'll aim them tonight and see how I like the output. They are not HIDs or LEDs

Happy 4th of July! Did some peak bagging and washed the Jeep...finally.

Got my camera working again. Here's some pics of my lights (and I also added some ARB D-rings with isolators).
Still need to aim them a bit and get a feel for the coverage.
