Maybe some day... I was so deep into this rack with time and money, I just wanted the project done a month after it started. I ended up taking bed liner to it. The white would look great if I found a decent match for the jeep. I also like that the black stands out a bit more. Shows off the work in pictures a little better. I feel like the bare aluminum was hard to make out what was going on in a lot of the pictures.

What brand are these?

I fixed my LEDs from Spyder tonight, again. They are super flimsy crap. The solders are shot or the contacts aren’t done well. I have to take the lights out and reseat the connections.
Bought a new pair but they send me “clear” ones so I’m sending them back.
I bought them off ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/184078900227

The housings aren't the best, but not awful, but the connectors and lenses seem good. Only issue I had was that the reverse bulb socket was too narrow for the led bulbs that I had, but I fixed it by trimming down the sides of the wedge on the bulb itself

I backed into a new Dodge Ram 1500 while parallel parking yesterday...left the guy a note and he texted back to me saying it was OK. I only marked him a tiny bit but not too impressed with myself. I only hit things when I'm at crawling speed.

Finally found some decent Molle side panels and got those installed. I was able to get my kits mounted and out of the way.

Please?! I would love to know more about these as well. How much weight are you comfortable putting on those with them attached to the trim like that?

I have less that 10lbs on mine and the only complaint is they kind of just screw into your ceiling which isn’t it the most secure , but they were the only options I’ve seen. I thought about buying some larger screws and spacers. To just slowly see if I can get into just part of my roof but not go through.

I finally swapped my partly broken passenger mirror for a new one, and in the process I think I found the source of the occasional rattle in the door which is nice. Then I swapped out my sometimes noisy blower motor, so hopefully my commute (when it starts up again) is a little quieter.

Installed a Goliath Off Road front skid with shackles. Love the way it looks and really protects what it needs to. Install wasn't necessarily fun but got it done with a friend and a 6 pack.
