This is what I did all weekend......
Finally pulled them apart and painted them and put Halo's in them.
These aren't Oracle's. I made them out of side emitting LED strips. I purchased 16ft of it, and ran my own halos for about $60 vs the $200 Oracle charges.
I gnarled my lights up pretty bad taking them apart though. I was worried they wouldn't go back together, but they did. Hopefully they won't fog up. But I put some weather sealing on them. Only time will tell.

Finally got to play in some mud so I guess what I did was got it dirty! That's what you're supposed to do to a Jeep right? Please excuse the breeze.

Haha I got bored the other day and was looking on Craigslist and there were three different superlifted wks between like hickory Boone Craigslist pages. I just found that odd, yet cool

Having my Magnaflow muffler and polished resonated tip from Kolak welded up to my WK 4.7L V8. Needless to say I am excited to be getting out of work and picking it up!!!

Also, they are changing my transmission fluid and two filters and replacing with new Mopar ATF +4 fluid. Has never been done before on my 78k mile Jeep.

Let me know how it sounds brian. I decided not to use the Magnaflow since the shop advised me it would be too quiet, still had the tip welded on though

Will do! I decided on magnaflow because I dont want it excessively loud, just louder and meaner sounding when you actually punch the throttle.

I equate it to sounding sportier at lower rpm's then when you are accelerating on highway it sounds more like a growler. At least from what I heard on youtube for differences between magnaflow and flowmaster. The flowmaster has the more classic muscle-car sound all the time. Magnaflow seemed a little sportier sounding to me with still a growl at higher rpm's.

Did I mention I am excited to hear it and see how the polished tip looks with all the chrome on my limited?

Vid please! 8)

I've been trying to figure out what route I want to go on the exhaust.

Eastern skies, what tip did you order/through kolak?

The polished tip looks real good, I love the look of mine. Seems magnaflow is a good choice for you then, I went with flowmaster the muscle tone its not obnoxiously loud either just a steady tone and opens up when you punch it.

Edit: Pancake I got the same one as brian also check the previous page I linked you a vid of my exhaust.

Trying to shrink the pic but the 70th Anniversary badge (off a wrangler) fits the GC grille exactly...a good mod IMO.

I know I saw the video. I wanted to just get a comparison between yours and the magna flow. I think I like the throatier, deeper sound of the flowmaster. But well see. Just curious, Brianj, how much was the total check for you if you don't mind me asking.

Thanks guys

Just the headlights. I'm thinking about doing the fogs also. But I'm not sure if it will be too much or not.
