Installed some LED entry lights, thanks to omelet for the idea.

They are tapped into the interior lights

Do you have any pics showing the install of the LEDs?

looks great!

how much light do the LEDs give off relative to regular ones? Most LEDs I've dealt with seem brighter to look at, but dont seem to illuminate as big an area as bright or well as halogens.

Thanks!

I chose the Spot lights which do direct the light in a beam thats about 3-4 feet wide.. so nowhere near the coverage of your headlights or fogs. The diffused show to have a similar beam pattern as headlights. Guess it depends on your application. They are 1300 lumens a piece at 15W in a 3" package, I have xenons and the LED's are about twice as bright as those. The D2 Duallys have twice the lumens in the same package. For the size you cant really beat it. Although I have no experience with off road halogen lights for comparison. :confused:

Rigid Light Mounts
 
Here are some pics of how they are mounted. I made two brackets out of thick steel to extend the bumper rebar. This set up gave me the flexability to adjust them left/right and up/down. Given the grill slopes up towards the top, the way i have them now are about as high as they will go.

Hypertech Max Energy
 
Got the Hypertech Max Energy yesterday and went with the premium tune.. Adds a nice power gain across the board, as well as a nice 1st to 2nd gear boost. With the 3.7, every little bit helps.


Unknow what the MPG difference will be, but I imagine a bit better since I've got a little more power in the low RPM range. Next step- Fastman.. :thumbsup:

Removed the top air box and replaced it with the liberty intake tube. Also wrapped the 77 metal CAI to keep some heat off
