I don't think you'll be disappointed... I'm only running one and it's extremely bright.

Now to find some used brackets...

Install was easy. Had to drill a 4" hole. The reverse portion of the light acts as a mounting flange and they do stick out 1/2". Only problem I had was I overtightened one of the screws and cracked the plastic housing on the reverse portion. As a result moisture got in and some of the leds went out. Lucky for me they have a 5 year free replacement warranty. Overall I love em!

I have the same tail lights, since mine aren't cracked I've been nothing but pleased with them. The reverse lights are nice and bright.

If you can't stand behind our troops feel free to stand in front of them!

Last winter I was having issues starting the jeep on cold mornings. I had the battery tested and it passed (2 weeks ago i left my lights on and killed it, the auto parts store replaced it for free). During the coldest day in January I pulled my started to get it tested. The starter passed the test in the auto parts store.
Symptoms: when the temperature outside is about 70* there is no hesitation before the jeep starts.
Below 60* and I have to wait until the buckle the seat belt finishes its beeps before I can start the jeep. I call this the Electrical "warm up"
When it is below 50* and I try to start the jeep with out letting the electrical system "warm up" the starter is slow to spin and wont always crank the engine fast enough to start. After 3 or 4 tries it will not have enough juice to even turn the starter.
Does any one have any ideas on what to check next?
Oil is correct viscosity, less than a month old battery.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Check the heavy gauge wire (6 gauge) going from battery to the starter motor, look for corrosion and/or loose connections...

Spray some grease inside the tube that houses the throttle cable. Help a bunch.

Replaced my exhaust header and created a vacuum leak somewhere. Damn now I have to fix something vs want to fix.
