Thanks, yeah they throw the light pretty good. Right now they have 55 watt H-3 lamps in them. But I have 130 watt lamps on order. They'll be blinding with those in.

Finished up an oil change on her a couple minutes ago. My last oil change was 11k miles ago. I had Mobil 1 Full Synthetic in it and that was it's first change with synth. I had to top off my oil with around 2 qts. in December, and today when I did the change there was another quart missing.

I remember saying to myself at 7500 miles "Ya ya when it gets nice out I'll do an oil change." Well finally we had a nice day 3500 miles later.

Filled her up with Mobil 1 Synth and a mopar filter. She's idling a little smoother now and it was nice to see some Golden, translucent oil going into her instead of seeing this come out of her.

Lol that will definitely get people to move over for you on the parkway.

What kind of lights are you running in your headlights/fogs they look super bright.

Installed an amp to power a sub that doesn't fit in the box I have currently. Amp is mounted under the 3rd row seat, sub box will be at the feet of the second row passenger side. Wiring is all in place, but no pics since it's not done.. waiting on a trim ring to push out the mounting depth of the box a little, and some wire terminals just to clean it up a little. It still won't be pretty but it will get the job done filling in the lows a little better than the stock BA system does. And I won't be losing any cargo space because it's at the feet of my kids who are still in car seats.

The lows are just standard silvania lamps I think. The fogs are yellow 65 watt 6005 hi beam lamps. I need to angle the fogs down a bit too. I never adjusted them after the lift so they're more like driving lights now.

Very interesting. How are the fogs holding up? I keep mine on all the time while I drive. Only problem with the extra wattage is I would think it could melt or warp the housing no?

I keep them on all the time also. If the lows are on , so are the fogs. No issues yet. I had 100w bulbs in there for a short while that would have destroyed the lense if left in. The hi beam swap doesn't seem to be an issue though. You just have to nip a little piece off the 9005 bulb to make it fit in the fog housing.

You guys won't believe this but I just picked up some new Mopar rock rails for a WK from craigslist. Here is the kicker, $35 ! No, I'm not forgetting a zero. $35 never installed!
