Alright since the new bumper doesn't have places for the stock fog lights, mine are melted anyways, I ordered a set of 2, cheap, 6", fog lights and H3 HID bulbs. Should swap right over and be able to use my existing ballasts and my OEM fog light switch.

Nice bumper! I had cheap LEDs in my fog lights and my bumper didn't have a place for the factory fogs so I ran a 15" LED light bar to my fog light switch. Just wish there was a way to override the turn off with the high beams! :-(

Failure is an event, not a person!

Yeah I know! The TJ has an override. But no love for us.

Alright so the bumper was back ordered 2-3 weeks, but its still a steal so I figured what the hell. Gonna order the Warn VR-8000 in about 2 weeks.

Fog lights are here. HID bulbs should be here soon. All that's left to order is the brake pump relocation bracket and the winch.


Looking at the Engo winch as well. Any input on the VR8000 vs the Engo is appreciated...

Okay so we got some snow today (6-12" depending where) and the Jeep did insanely well!! Here are some pictures...
Just after it started


My friend's 13 Rubi


Stuck F-150


The Raptor got some action today as well


Pulling the battery out of my Karmann Ghia for the winter with my grandpa


On my way home from work when it was pretty much ice


Scariest part of the day was when a truck decided to take a corner way too fast and slide directly for me. Luckily I acted quick and accelerated out of the way just in time.

Be safe out there!

HIDs are in the 6" fog lights. Bumper is expected to ship in a couple days.
