The lights are like $94 a piece, the brackets are around $19 or $20 a piece. I got them from 4 Wheel Parts but I am pretty sure both Rebel Off Road and Northridge 4x4 have them as well.

I just tapped the wires into my reverse lights so they come on automatically when I put it in reverse. No need for a separate switch in the cab that way

Planning to do same on mine, did you cap the ends or leave 'em bare?

Sorry I've been out all day getting those tires and wheeling lol no I havent even heard of that. I live up in the North West so I usually wheel locally (A LOT!) and then wheel with my bud in Austin. I can't wait to get my Rubi MOAB wheels from him and get these tires mounted! My Lee-Roy is slowly becoming a man *sniffle-sniffle* they grow up so fast lol

I was going to cap them with the material I cut off but I don't have a welder so I left it. It looks good still. I designed a stinger to add on eventually.

Finally installed the Lange manual hoist. Due to my garage roof, in the 70's house I could't do anything else as I only have a single point to hang the system. The instruction was bad, so make sure you do your homework .

The T bar looks a little unstable but when the hardtop hangs with the hoist it is very stable. I did add some additional straps later to spread the load a little. After this it is very stable.

Also you need to be careful lowering the hoist, if you follow the instructions all will be well.

Also added a rubi rail I snagged from craigslist.

Discovered that the bank added 2500$ to my loan... Had them reverse that, then paid $12k towards it. Only 1500$ left till she's mine! And did an oil change.

Can't figure out how to embed the video. It is a one minute time lapse of the install.
