Bob, those look just like the lights from Spyder. I think they look pretty good. I have the smoked tail lights from spyder. I'm just not sure about those 3 leds too. I feel like I need to do something with my headlights and fogs but I cant decide. I should get the matching spyders for the front but... not sure.

Otherwise, they look good on your rig. Sucks about the deer.

did you hook it up the with the correct polarity? someone correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure optima has a specific battery for our jeeps as the battery terminals are opposite on most of their batteries.

Really doesn't matter what battery you buy if you hook it up wrong because it won't work and will cause you problems. When you connect a battery it should be done by polarity not terminal/wire location.

Either more information is needed like did he then proceed to connect it to the proper terminals before jumping it, when the horn was going off was it constant or honking like the alarm had been tripped?

A little bit of wk towing action anybody? I had to tow my WJ home because while I was away my friend was using it and the fuel pump died. Oh well at least I was able to test out the towing power of the HEMI ha ha

Installed an OME HD lift. Started on it Saturday morning, by mid afternoon she had a new stance and a whole new attitude Oh yes worth every penny I was concerned about the ride being too stif... it's not. The ride is firm but not too stiff. I feel it's an upgrade.

Thanks Kolak for helping me to purchase the right lift. It's perfect

Just did the pinch weld mod! So glad I got it overwith. The drivers side isn't as good because I used a hammer to begin with. I bent the passenger side over with a wrench first which turned out to be much easier and took about 1 minute to bend the whole length of the pinch weld. Everything goes on tomorrow so we'll see how it goes.
