New lights

It was cold here, -22c, so I fired up the wood stove in the garage and installed my 55w digital ballasts,xenon HID's.
Then washed the salts and dirt off it.
I miss summer!
Hopefully a winch install in the works soon.

In stalled my Smittybilt sliders. It was a pain. They didn't seem to fit. I had to do a lot of drilling and grinding, but non the less got them on. wheels, tires and lift coming "soon."

I could be wrong but they look like Quick Fist mounts.

They do look like they hang down quite a bit but they don't hang down past the frame. If I get a chance I'll post a pic from down low. They don't give you as much side clearance as some but I like the fact they were steps as well because my wife is kind of short and I needed something to give her some help before the lift.

On the passenger side the bolts didn't match and I had to drill out the hole on the slider itself. The other side just didn't fit so I had to grind down the sides a bit and then jack it up in there. I'm no master of mods so I may not have known what I was doing but I made it work.

Installed the Or Fab rear tire carrier. HUGE thank you to Brent_f70 for showing me how to grind down the AEV corners to make it work too!

Promissed it that I'd pull the doors off again as soon as I could. Doesn't seem right with them on anymore

Installed Smittybilt SRC Rocker Guards...it was a pain in the a$$, didn't want to seem to fit quite right. Used a rubber mallet to knock them into place. Overall however, I'm happy with the outcome.

YEP, we're in that short Winter right now though, lol.
They'd still be off right now if it wasn't a 20 mile trip to work. My max at 40 degrees is 5 miles
