Installed Rock Hard 4X4 lower control arm skids front and rear.

pro tip. Rock the front wheel if the control arm won’t align properly with the frame bracket holes. It was a PITA before learning that technique here on the forums.

190ft-lbs is not fun to apply in such a limited space. If you didn’t torque these bolts with a properly rated torque wrench you probably left them too loose.

I have a Next Venture FDS and front diff covering on order and it looks like I'll need to cut down the front driver's side LCA skid quite a bit to fit that system.

I may be in the minority but my favorite thing to do with lights mounted in that location is to angle them outwards so that they barely overlap with the front headlights to provide a 150-180degree across light zone. For me, the outward pointed lights really help in trail identification, location, and selection after dark.

The model numbers would be very helpful if you gotta sec...
Sorry about the delay, had some crazy family stuff going on.

Anyway it’s the infinity ref-3032cfx

I love them; they are solid and therefore on the heavy side (which to me is far better than flimsy.) The nylon screw tightened right up and I don’t believe there’s any movement since the installation, at least that I am aware of. Since putting them on, I drove from Northern California to Moab, did Shafer Road in Canyonland and have put maybe 3000 miles on the Jeep since I installed them..
That's definitely a good endorsement of them holding up!

Well been neglecting the JL lately between work and family. But gave her some love yesterday and today.

Washed her, removed the air dam, fluid filmed the underside and decorated 😁

Thanks, planning on painting the front hooks to match. I installed the front covers as well...really like the black accents with the Willys

I too am enjoying adding black accents to my Willys (and hopefully body color accents to where there's a lot of black). Can't tell if I should be appreciative for everyone's answers here cause every time I ask something I end up buying more stuff lol
