Can you get a picture of them shining down the road or something else flat? That'll give us a better idea of how well they light up.

Still haven't taken a better pic of the lights yet.

Got a little dirty today.

Up on the ramps looking for a couple sounds. Fixed the heat shield that was rattling me crazy. Still can't find the cause of a metal on metal clunk in the front drivers side wheel area. Happens almost every time I hit a bump. Almost sounds like something loose shifting bit I can't find shit.
Image

Pulled my rear bumper ends tomorrow on my lunch break ill rough it up so I can bed line it tomorrow night.

Still haven't tackled the lift. :(

The clunking up front is probably either the shock or a bushing. Check out

Well my shocks are about shot but no problem there, got new ones in my lift kit about to go on. Bushings look good. After more inspection found the problem. Inside the coil there's a shock like thing I believe its a dampener, well there's a rubber bump stop on it. I'm missing the one on the driver side.

Well since I was sad I had to back out on wheeling this weekend. I treated myself to some K&N and started my "cold" air intake. :D
Image
So far..
1. K&N cone filter.
1. Cone breather filter.
1. 60° angle.
2. Hose clamps.

Tomorrow after work ditch the rest of the air box, make a air dam and a bracket to hold it still.

Plan is to do the white trim and down.

Should look less clumpy after the second coat.

Well haven't got the lift on or the 31" tires yet to mpg is normal for a Jeep. Around 14mpg. I'm hoping the intake will help a little. As is left and go with bigger tires it will drop. My buddy gets about 7 with his 34s. :shock:

With the 4.0 and proper gears, you should still see at least double digit numbers. I had an old Mazda on 35's and I got 14mpg with a warmed over 4 cylinder.

I believe improper use of the skinny peddle has something to do with his low MPG.
