Re: Off Road Lights

I haven't. I'm not sure if they would fit, but it sure would be bright.

Where did you get those side light markers or did you tint them yourself?

Any DIY thread on that?

Thanks, nice WK!

I wanted a set of stillens, and was going to have them painted to match the color of my Jeep. But I didn't want to drop 120$ on the stillens and another 100$ to have them painted. So I had some plasti dip left over from my wheels, and I used that to make my own. I used blue painters tape to tape the lines, and covered up the areas around it, and then painted it with plasti dip. I wasn't sure how it would come out but I love the look of it. It kind of goes along with the rest of the black accents on the Jeep.

Awesome, I wondered how feasible that would be. Did you sand or anything prior to paint? It looks awesome. I love that color WK. A rare breed here in NC. Only seen one or two, maybe.

Nice vehicle.

Re: Off Road Lights

Thanks man. I've only seen one other this color up here in my hometown. It was super easy, and a lot cheaper than buying Stillens. The only prep I did was to clean the area I wanted to spray, then I taped it off and sprayed away. Its held up great and if I ever get sick of it, I can just peel it off.

Thanks guys.

Any L bracket should work. I bought one from Lowes that was about 10" long and just cut 2 pieces off.
