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.

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.
