Not the high beams, I had to unplug the factory bulb and connect it to the built in harness.

Not sure about the deer whistles, I think they attract deer!

I hit two in a row just after putting deer whistles on a car years ago.
They seemed to wait at the side of the road until I just got into range, then nailed me.

Since taking them off, no more deer strikes.
They're probably invented by the fender manufacturers!

Put back together my back seat and cargo area. Took it apart and down to the metal to allow everything to air out from spilling the gas. Not sure how the smell will be now, because it was pretty bad. Hopefully it'll be better now after airing for a week. Keep you updated.

Did the cargo area led mod today. Very pleased with the results. Although it makes my factory "yellow" light look terrible.....lol. Now I have to upgrade them I guess. Thanks to omelet for the step by step

Ordered Steel Armadillo sliders for my rocker panels (get in on the group buy if you want a pair!)
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/p...iders-1419223/

Ordered 4xG belly skid and rear diff cover.

Once those pieces of kit are installed, I officially no longer have excuses for not hitting the trails.

Did the door lock mod. Pretty excited I can now hang my arm out the window without resting it on the door lock.

Just because they have projectors doesn't mean they were made for HIDs. If they were designed for Halogen bulbs (which I am guessing they were) then installing HIDs in them is no different then installing HIDs into the OEM housings.


Bob keep an eye on those white LEDs, they are known to burn out.

Thanks, I figure ill treat it like anything else, I'll use them till something better comes along or they get smashed!

I debated changing to the 08 front clip but dodnt want to lose the fogs when I cut the bumper cover down. In making that decision I found these lights and figured I'd try them out., love them or hate them they are there and are 100 times better than the busted down oem lights.
