What's this weekends project??

This weekends project is my fog lights. I bought lights from xenon depot. I have a set in my headlights and there great. Can't wait to install these I'll put some pictures up of the finished product.

Re: What's this weekends project??

Sounds like a lot more fun than my weekend project (continuing)....

Ripping up old layers of vinyl flooring down to the sub-floor.
Getting that last layer of paper/glue off is a real bitch.

Re: What's this weekends project??

If I was able to find a pair of Mopar Black Exhaust Tips for my Altitude that aren't priced at $300 (J4J), then that would be my weekend project. I found matte black aftermarket ones on Amazon for $60, which has the right measurements, but not feeling the matte look so much.

Re: What's this weekends project??

For the new-to-me:

Doing a thorough cleaning on the new-to-me on the inside top to bottom...

Figuring out if, and if yes it is plausible, where I want to mount a CCW holster (the door, the storage bin, underside of the dash?)...

Deciding once and for all which of the 4 running boards I like I want to order...

Maybe picking up some roof rails from the dealer, but that's not a major priority.

If time permits on Saturday - going to the local 4 Wheel Parts store just to walk around and oogle all the possibilities.

Re: What's this weekends project??

Have company coming on Saturday that we're picking up from the airport and then evening out for dinner for the little ladies birthday.

But on Sunday off come the snow tires and rims and on go the summers. Kind of a mixed feeling about the whole thing. Those black spoke rims look really good.

It'll would probably be much cheaper to get some no name tips sand them and spray them yourself. That's a nice dyi

Under the dash on the left would probably be best. I was in my local 4x4 shop just spit ballin ideas.

The install went by very smooth. It took me 2 hrs, could've been a lot less if a buddy didn't come over with beers. Everything is strapped down to the back of the bumper with zip ties. uploadfromtaptalk1459810446038.jpguploadfromtaptalk1459810457977.jpguploadfromtaptalk1459810475178.jpguploadfromtaptalk1459810484302.jpguploadfromtaptalk1459810493892.jpg

Thanks!
After poking around the cabin cleaning I kind of came to the same conclusion. I'm a ambi-lefty dominant shooter so I'm thinking right near the gas door release - back just a hair further.

Re: What's this weekends project??

My running boards showed up 2 days early - so I went ahead and installed them.
(1 hour job my lily white behind! )
