I took my daughters out for some test wheeling yesterday (Mira was on camera duty...nice work, Mira!).


Tackling the tires.


We climbed the wall successfully a few times. Not too bad, especially given how wet/muddy the tires were. Quote of the night (from Mira): "You're not going to die, Maeve. And if you do, like Amy (my fiancee) always says, it's less mouths to feed." LOL


Poser tire shot.

No he has money obviously... He did stuff right like I wish I had the money for but I don't. Sorry if my jeep doesn't have 10k wrapped up into it... I'm fresh out of college and building my first jeep. Yeah I did some things I wish I wouldn't have but who hasn't?

yes and no, 2 light is tasteful and look good, 4 your pushing it, but 6 looks dumb
especially with the places you put them, it just looks stupid, im sorry
and you probably could of gotten just as much light out of 2 tastefully placed quality lights
imho the jeep on the right looks 100 times better then the jeep on the left as far as lights go

and you could at least straighten up the lights you have

Definately correct on the 6 lights is tooooo much that is why those grill ones are gone but the are just as bright as his KC lights at half the price. If you don't like the lights say it don't say it's Bc they are Walmart lights.
