Just a couple pics of me wheeling/playing/flexing

Painted my headlight reflectors and shrouds black this weekend, and also added a 20" LED light bar to my front bumper, planning on remounting my HID fogs a little lower on the bumper this week or coming weekend!

Finally got the HID fogs mounted below the light bar, added amber LED strips for blinkers onto the bumper filler plate things right below the headlights.



I also added white LED's in my corner lights so all my front facing lights basically match at a more cool white 5-6000K

I Ordered a couple OTRTTW switches that i will be installing this coming weekend. Planning on doing a plate below my aftermarket single din stereo like a few ppl on here have done. I only have two switches to put in at the moment, but will most likely cut openings or at least leave space for 2 or 3 more for future

Ill post pics when done

How do you like the Eibach spring rate? I went 881 as I wanted a soft ride, but when I pre-load them later to get more height, I guess that will come at a cost of travel (springs will bind before suspension runs out of travel, or am I wrong on this?) later- would have been nice to get 3" of lift out of the box, but I liked the 881's spring rate.

I'm digging All Pro's hybrid Baja bumper, but not liking that I need to buy their skids... how do you like the whole package? It might be a blessing in disguise I have to run their skids anyhow as the threads on the body for the OE skid are ruined.

The eibach's ride really well on the road, i like a stiffer spring. they're not bad offroading, but def not the best. I really don't have anything to compare them to besides stock.

I really like my All Pro setup. Installation was easy and everything fit perfect. The only problem i had was rusting bolts when i needed to take the skids off, but thats part of living in Maine.
