How well does those lights hold up/how much did they cost?

Direct bolt in correct?

I paid a little over 200 on sale a while back. I had them on my last Sahara Tan Sahara and loved them. But not a direct bolt in. Heres the cutting I did to both. Plus the wiring harness has to be spliced as well.

Ok. Corbeau seats as per my seat install thread!



Now it finally going in for some roll bar work!! I decided i want it all to fit within the half cab. At first i was going to add some bolt in bars for show but thats out. I want it in the style of the mopar jk8 roll bar but with more support. Brian , "the roll bar guy" as he is known in the household here said he can do it. The idea is to go with his heavy wall 1 3/4" pipe. It will fit into the existing support with the seat belt bracket and welded.



It will then direct 90 degree on a slight angle to the plates in the floor once utilized by the back seat.



I would then like a bar like the mopar has along the bottom except welded in as a bar slightly above the bulkhead for the half cab.



Heres a pick of the mopar bar being installed buy a dealer I believe.



This is the angle it will take to the plate for welding. With the cross bars added it should look pretty good!




Heres is the mopar cut off point inthe top bar



and the bulkhead placement markings



Tomorrow we strip the interior!!
