Installed Bright Sky LEDs on a suggestion from Vince Lucas (thanks man!). Reviews are not as good as JW Speaker, but they are 1/5 of the price. Very pleased with the performance thus far. They definitely light up the night!

Added some Spydertrax wheel spacers to the mix............it helps fill out the wheel wells and makes it feel more stable.

Went on the New River Gorge ride this past weekend and the Jeep performed well, didn't even use 4wd.

Got my strong box installed yesterday. Lockable, but also completely removable.

Moreso in the Gauley Bridge area.

When you get back, I will be glad to show you the area where we went!

Installed a new multi-function switch on the column last week to fix my fog light issue.

Works great.

Also mounted my 12" light bar on my bull bar, but haven't had time to get it wired up yet.

Progress, nonetheless.

Got my SRC cage, BedRug liner, antenna mount, winch solenoid, light bar, auto-dimming mirror and some other goodies installed thanks to some help from Corey Cunningham. He also found and fixed my mysterious oil leak.

Replacing the dome light(s) with LEDs is a cheap, simple and very effective upgrade.
