I am just wondering if anywhere along the way you thought to yourself..."I have enough lights."? I mean dang...well...you missed a few spots just so you know. The top of your windshield could use another bar. The top of the tube on your bumper could use one as could the sides. You might be able to fit more under the bumper and fenders. Heck the side of your windshield at this point couldn't hurt either. Turn your black JK into one big white glowstick.

Nope. The thought never crossed my mind. Sure I have enough. I also probably will never need 100 feet of synthetic winchline, or the fire extinguisher in the back. Shoot, for that matter, the seatcovers were a waste too. Good golly, come to think of it, this vehicle was absolutely 100% capable of doing exactly what I needed it to do, right off the lot-- and I mean that truthfully.

Darn aftermarket.

QFT. Great vehicles off the lot but us little boys (and a few girls) are like kids in the candy store when we see those new products. I don't really have anything that I absolutely won't need but for almost all of what I do the mods are overkill. Nice to know they are there when I need them and also been real fun buying and building it up.

Amen

I'm admittedly a serious mod-a-holic. Many of you have seen pics of some of my past rides, but MOST of the mods I do are far from necessary I'm just a sucker.

Agreed. Nice ride all the way around. If you get on fire roads at night there is no such thing as too much light.

My problem living near him is I do get to that point where I say to myself "Self, you have finally done enough. Go take a break, since your work is done" and then GE2 drives by and I feel incomplete as a man...

Here's mine so far; I aspire to emulate my role model, ge2 but have a stricter wife:

I made the same mistake. Did you have to completely rewire the windshield lights or did you just swap in the new ones into the existing wire harness?
