I got an hour of free time earlier and got the lights mounted. Getting the carriage bolts out was a pain in the ass. Thankfully I had an elbow extension for my cordless impact wrench. Your mounting method is pretty cool but I feel better with a bolt in the bumper, haha.

If it isn’t too much to ask, can you post a pic of the ground? There’s a lot of bolts. I’d love to see what you picked.

I’m thinking of running the positive up the frame rail as well. The only thing I can’t see right now is where it goes from the frame rail up to the battery compartment. I’d like to run it up the right (fender) side of the battery right to the AUX wires rather than the left (engine side). Just need a clearer view. It just started raining so wiring is going to have to wait a bit
I chose the small one near the tow hook. I need to get some heat reflective tape to cover the gorilla tape but that will need to wait until next week because we have ice now and a blizzard starting in a couple of hours.
I put a work light underneath the engine compartment where the battery is and looked down to see a slender opening where the wire could go. I ran a long zip tie up from underneath next to the inner fender where I could see light from above.

All credit to her for making for making that an unintentionally funny Kodak moment. ;)

Put on the Mopar roof racks and replaced the plastic keys with a Yakima set and painted the Jeep logo

rdrjohn, I would like to get these Yakama key locks for our Mopar Roof Racks as well. I looked on Amazon but wasn't sure which ones to get. Could you possibly post up a link for me to them?
Thank you, Bob
