Are they any better ? More light on dark rainy nights ? Where did you buy them ?
Also installed Bilstein rear shocks. Waiting for the front ones to arrive so I can install them also.
Who has a write up for the front ones ?

The front sucks real bad. The big bolts were frozen on mine at the bottom so I just undid the bolts for the shocks on the top and bottom and hammered up on the old shocks until they came out.
I used the Jeeps weight and a jack to push the new shocks back in.

This past Saturday, I changed the engine oil/filter and the transmission fluid/filters.
Anybody know if the trans pan is sealed with black RTV from the factory? I thought it was supposed to be a gasket. Mine had sealant on the pan and no gasket. Just wondering.

Fluid didn't smell burnt, but it also wasn't a bright red color either. 171k miles and adding up quickly! Trans fluid change was about $85 worth of peace of mind!

When I did mine there was just sealant on it. When I put it back together I used a light coat of RTV to hold the gasket in place. I also bought a new trans pan with a drain for the next change.

Well I was doing pinch weld until it started pouring wondering if the rain will get to the pinch weld and take off all paint I put on to protect from rust

I put mine behind the grill and a couple below pointed out to the sides to see smaller animals with.
I've replaced the grill lights with much brighter driving lights from superbrightleds.com.

PolkaPower I really like what you did, it seems you switched out your fogs too.
I ghetto installed the switches in the center console, I will post a picture of it. They fit perfectly in place and I added just a tad of silicone to fix them in place

For the fogs I got some LEDs I think either from Amazon or Superbrightleds.com. Can't remember.
I also trimmed some HIR bulbs for the headlights and they are quite a big improvement over stock.

I need to add a Main power switch, so that I cant activate by accident the axle locks. And I will add another light switch for some LEDs.. I found this space pretty useless to be honest

Yeah I put my wallet there but otherwise it's useless.
That would suck driving down the highway and accidentally locking an axle lol.
