I don't have the KC Xcross bar, I went with Road Armor, but I have similar to your question.
Thoughts after having them installed for a bit, random order:
1. I prefer the lights being above the windshield, doesn't block your view this way.
2. It's a pain trying to line up multiple...
That makes more sense, I was thinking it was some type of adjustable ride height thing.
Sitting here wondering why you would do that to get the tire back in contact vs just locking the axle and not coming up with anything.
Just go to a local muffler place and have them weld in some pipe to make the exhaust exit out by the rear bumper. Hate to say it but for the melted hole, I'd caulk it up and put the cargo cover back down myself.
My only experience with Rough Country was a 4" kit on a WJ. Once I corrected the death wobble, the lift wasn't horrible, a bit floatie feeling on the highway though.
I know WJ to JL isn't really comparable.
I hit the opposite problem with the Road Armor mounts, the upper portion is tight against the windshield frame. I need to add some felt/rubber behind it this weekend when I finish tidying up the wiring (the molex connectors for the lights are driving me stupider rattling against the window frame).
No Jeep horror stories yet, hoping to keep it that way.
Parked my first Miata with the windows down and top up while at work. Had a stray cat get inside and piss all over the plastic rear window that was unzipped and laying on the back deck. Somehow didn't get it all over the interior but...
I did 4x KC on switch 3 and the other 4x KC on switch 4.
Mainly because I thought I might want to run the outboard wide angle stuff without the spots in the middle being on.
In practice, it'll probably be run everything all the time.
I wanted individual 6" round led lights and greatly preferred something with a single element look (as opposed to multiple CREE showing). Didn't leave me much choice. I hope to have it all wired up this weekend or next, depending on when lights 7 & 8 ship in.
Wanted to get some comments/thoughts on 6 vs 8 lights across the top light bar. My plan was to only run 6 (4 spots in the middle and 2 driving on the ends) but it kind of feels like Road Armor is pushing me to go for 8 lights. In the picture, I'm mocking things up using factory mounting holes...
