    2nd Gen Skid Plans

    This all makes a lot of sense. I see how having a full set raises the comfort level and obviously gives the most protection. Like I said, I don't wheel much, but if fully skidded I could hit trails I normally wouldn't do when wheeling. Appreciate the advice all.

    2nd Gen Skid Plans

    Skid plate question. What are the most important ones? I'm thinking radiator and transfer case at a minimum? What about engine and transmission (auto trans)? A full set runs about $1200 plus shipping. That's a bit pricey. I don't wheel all that much but do want some protection so I can...

    Aftermarket Rear Bumpers for 2nd Gens

    Hey all. Having a hard time finding some rear bumper options. I had a full set of armor ordered from Black Widow in Canada, but their fabricator got sick and they closed up shop. Now I'm looking for something else. Looks like Hardcore is on hold now due to the increase in steel prices...

    LED headlights

    Thanks again Prime. I didn't think fog lights mattered, but it was just easier to swap the bulbs. I need to check if they are DOT bulbs, I have the original box. Probably not as I didn't know it was a thing. I just grabbed them from Amazon so likely not approved.

    LED headlights

    Thanks Prime. I assume the same for HID Xenon bulbs? Basically no more than 4 forward facing white lights. I wonder how they determined mine were not DOT approved? Maybe they pulled them out to check?

    LED headlights

    Another question on these. Are they DOT approved? I just did my vehicle inspection here in Virginia. I had put LEDs in my reverse and fog lights. The shop said they are not approved. Luckily I still had the old bulbs in the glove box, just swapped them out and passed inspection. I asked...

    These are high and low beam?

    Roof Racks

    Thanks for the feedback. I don't see the adhesive foam offered as an option anywhere. I'd like to order that to prevent any paint damage. I'll probably get the universal 40" light bar fairing. I don't have a light bar yet, but I think that's what I'd like to run.

    Bought a part-out vehicle! (Story - not a "for sale" thread)

    What price do you have on the Warn winch? I'd be interested in the seat covers as well if they are the right color, any pics?

    Roof Racks

    @Pro-4K, did this get to you? I'm ready to put in my order but wanted to know how you like yours? Any feedback?

    Not a bad deal at Home Depot for this set, discount of $410, I grabbed it. There is a more powerful impact wrench (2767-20), but the one in this package (2663-20) has 640 ft/lbs of breaking power which should be plenty for my needs. Lots of other goodies with this kit too...

    Tool advice request

    I was looking at Milwaukee and Ingersoll as well, they are both recommended often when searching the Googles. I like TerryD's advice to standardize the battery pack, great idea. With that in mind I think Milwaukee has more tools than Ingersoll.

    White Spoke Wheels

    I was thinking this as well. Maybe some black steelies and make them white. Those are nice looking wheels. I thought bead locks aren't street legal?

    Roof Racks

    That cutout looks nice, must be the 40" universal. I think I'd like that better than the multiple cutouts for smaller lights. I'll be back to VA for about 10 months, then overseas again.

    White Spoke Wheels

    Didn't think of that. Anyway, looks like the 6x5.5 will be an issue. I should have looked up stock pattern first, it's 6x4.5.

    White Spoke Wheels

    I know they aren't the most preetiest, but I've always loved these wheels. I've been trying to find some that fit the Gen 2. I found these, do they fit? I know they are 15" compared to my stock 16's, but I need new tires anyway...

    Roof Racks

    Yes please. I like it. And...bookmark. Just need to factor in lead time and order so I get this when I return state side this fall! Did you choose a light cutout? I think I want one but not sure what would look best. Or, how to make sure I get lights that fit.

    Any opinions on this? I need a new impact wrench and came across this that also accepts bits to be an impact driver. Too good to be true? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07N3CQLRP/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

    DIY Roof Rack

    Unfortunately I didn't get to try it out for long. I got in wreck a little over a month later. I did attach my Thule cargo box to it and loaded with three sets of skis and all the needed gear. Probably 80 pound of gear. It felt solid and I kept the spacing between the bars small so weight...
