Should be able to spray water in there to clean out from behind.

Did you get the problem leds solved? It looks nice, doesn't take away from the windshield shape too much. How does it look from the side?

I bet they really shine. Look forward to some night shots.

I called jeep add ons and they referred me to paramount, so I sent them an email and await the response. It's not a real big deal to me but it does look bad on their part when someone asks what brand it is and then notice the unlit 3. It made my jeep look like it has a unibrow and could work as a sun visor during the day, overall I like the look of it. Pictures cannot do it justice, it can throw some light and doesn't have the glare that the kc's had on the hood. It is insanely bright.

Nice, the light is were you want it. Projector technlogy over the "million candle power" of the KC's LOL. Speaking of which, what pattern did you get? Did you get a lumens rating? I would love to do LED, just need to get a few more projects done before I can "justify" the $$$!

Just got a pm from Chris at jeep add ons, he said that if I don't hear back from paramount to let him know and they will make it right.

Did they take care of you yet on the LED light bar?
I am hovering over the buy button to get one for my CJ as well but was wanting to see how they treated you with your issue.

I know I have said it before but I really admire your CJ.

I especially like your wheeling pics!

So far Chris is making sure it gets taken care of, I just got back with him the other day since I waited a week for a reply from paramount Offroad. Chris told me as of today that they are going to swap it out and he sent the info to get an rga to ship mine back on their dime, should hear back from him tomorrow. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them at all. Anyways hope that helps your decision and thanks for the compliments.

Jeepaddons.com replaced the light bar for free, the new one came yesterday and I installed it tonight. Works just as it should (blinded myself a few times on accident). Anybody on the fence about this setup should go ahead and order it, the customer service at jeepaddons is top notch. Chris even threw in $20 store credit for the trouble! Now I'm trying to decide how I want to route the wire.

I like them and they seem to be holding up well but if I did it again I would probably try mastercraft's new value seat that's $199
