-Modified the factory swaybar cover to work with my aftermarket bumper, and light wiring.
-Almost finished re-wiring my Hella 1000 lights, this time using a factory dash switch in combination with an aftermarket one. This is so that I can manually control the lights, or have them come on with the highbeams.

That's a lot of lights to install a snorkel...why didn't you just wait until daylight?

As a big Rays fan you made me make my first real post by responding, but I also worked on the jeep today by darkening up the fenders with a heat gun, works great! Also sprayed my rusty undercarriage with rustoleum black and tried to unbolt my rear seatbelts but couldnt so they are soaking overnight with PB... also replac a brake bulb and front blinker bulb for inspection tomorrow (or today I guess it is now)
