Can you post more info on how you attached the led bar to the roof rack. Also is that a 40incher?

Yes, its a 42". I made some L shaped brackets and mounted the bar to the pre-existing bolts to the side rails.

Haha you just can't figure out where you want those Duallys can you Why would you tint a LED bar and reduce it's efficiency? !

I think I'm satisfied for now lol. Im sure you noticed when driving (morning/dust) towards the sun the nasty glare these bars give off. Some nights when I'm driving home I think I might kill someone by blinding them... I know I made a cover but I hate killing the look of it. Plus I use the bar 6 mornings of the week.
I did try some spray on night shade (light coat) before the 35% tint. I couldn't tell by the light out put the night shade was even on.

After doing pads and rotors on the wife's Civic, I decided I'd try and tackle my Gibson Cat-back. I had an easier time with the exhaust than the brakes! It looks and sounds fantastic! Thanks again Kolak!

An all around bad day of carnage for me and my buddies. Let me tell you a little story about a TJ and an XJ went into the trails to explore places no jeep had been before, the TJ threw a rear shaft, and the XJ found a really bad ditch, stuck in the middle of no where they decided to call on yours truly... While trying to recover the XJ I slid into a rather large rock with my drivers side rocker/door... It was a very wooded area, slid into some brush, scratched everything, dented my fender, and I'm pretty sure I knocked something loose under the front end! Not a good day but we got him out. Here are a few pics, not looking forward to calling my ins rep tomorrow
In the pic below you can see the roof rack of his XJ just barely above my dash! Guess rock rails are in order!

Just used it to haul parts around. Had a hell of a suprize today, parked to drop waste oil off and 2 spots over from me was a nice blue CRD WK. First one i have seen on the road, other than the 2 i know about in town.

Got the Hypertech 52001 in the mail today (thanks jester 1415!) and ran the regular tune.
I'm still a little confused on this thing. Is there a performance and economy tune for each regular and premium? Or is there just one tune each for regular and premium?

Do you really think they would send it back to me lol. That would be so funny. Well to get back to it. Do you know if they they keep the stock file or am I poop out of luck.
