thank you.

i need to come up with some other ideas for the turn signals. i placed the dual leds on the front and side of the fender, and they are insanely bright by themselves at night. you could actually work under that light. but in traffic with the headlights, you can barely see them. and during the day you can't see them at all unless you look directly at them and pay attention.

i also would like to find a different marker light to put in the grill. i used a round little 3 led light that i found at the parts store, and it works ok, but it's also very hard to see at night. like if i'm driving in front of her and look in the rear view mirror i can only see them sometimes. depending on how the jeep is moving on the road.

yeah i just thought about cj lights a couple days ago when i was laying in bed thinking of future "free/cheap" upgrades. so when i'm back up and around, i'll have to check that out.

do you know what size they were??? i think the once we got in there now are like 3" or something like that.

i also looked at the new JK marker lights when i was looking for lights since they put the markers back into the grill. but they use a wacky mounting bracket and i didn't feel like trying to make it work. sure would have been nice though. it uses the TJ style socket, so i wouldn't have even had to rewire anything.

did you weld the tube directly to the grille or did you put a piece of steel there?

hey hey hey. don't give me to much credit. those are tnt customs tube fenders.

i just had to make some slight adjustments, and then i took the whole front apart, did the light wiring. did the marker/turn lights. and stripped and repainted the entire front clip.

when i finish learning how to weld, then i'll start making cool stuff like that. lol
