Led's, even high powered ones run quite a bit cooler than halogen. Correction, they are 2000 lumen LED's:
H11 5K CXA 2000LM | 1 PAIR (backordered IN-TRANSIT) B/O
Front end portion of my build is complete!
The front end build turned out even better than I expected. I put a standard shop towel roll in front of the tire to show the front ground clearance. It is now 18.25 inches! There is also a side view showing the approach angle, which is quite dramatic as well.
For added stability off-road, 1" wheel spacers were installed. Cutting twenty heavy duty lug bolts is quite a fun time..
The plasti-dip blue of the fog light surrounds in the sunlight actually is a lot lighter/baby blue than I thought it would be. I will most likely peel off that plasti-dip and turn it black like the rest of the trim, or go with the darker blue of the tow-hooks. I like the darker blue.
Really the only thing I am not completely satisfied with is the RRO bumper set up against the Summit bumper cover. There was a whopping 3/4 inch gap between the two, making the fairlead install quite annoying. Not sure why such a huge discrepancy, I guess the Overland bumper cover might not stick out quite as far as the Summit's? Anyway, I made up half that gap with 2" stainless steel washers. I didn't want to go too crazy with the bolt length, as a fairlead has tremendous forces applied to it laterally and vertically under certain winching circumstances.
This precludes one from using too long of bolts, or they would just snap with the sideward pressure. So the bumper cover is slightly "pushed in" from it's normal resting position. The only alternative would be to cut out the entire edge of the fairlead, which IMO would not work out too good. It would almost be impossible to get a perfect cut on that. The bumper cover is such thick plastic, and if you do any cutting with a Dremel it melts. Then you would have a gap between the bumper cover and the edge of the fairlead which wouldn't look too good, and/or would need to be sealed with silicone or the like. This meeting half way with spacers if the best compromise that I could come up with and still keep a nice clean look.
I tried to get the Factor 55 Pro-Link centered up, but that just wasn't happening. The 100 feet of synthetic line really takes up the winch spool, and in order to keep the winch thimble tight against the fairlead that precludes it being centered due to the line spool.
The radar detector and laser jammer turned out really well semi-hidden in the grill's.

Anyways, what are you guys thoughts on the fog light surrounds. Change them to black like the rest of the trim or change to the matching dark blue of the tow hooks? I am going for just a "hint" of blue around the vehicle to go along with the "arctic" theme and don't want to "over-do" it.
I hope you guys enjoy the pictures as much as I've enjoyed working on my baby.
