    Well I got home from work and saw that Brown Santa came by today and dropped off some goodies for the Jeep!
    I ordered up a new grille and a couple cans of plastidip

    Before anyone asks why I ordered black plastidip for a grille that's already black is because the grille isn't painted, so if I just stuck it on my Jeep it will fade pretty fast. So I picked up a few cans of black plastidip to help protect it so that I don't have to worry about it fading, and it'll also help with chipping.

    So I've been a little busy lately and haven't been able to update everyone on my build but since today is a slow day I'll update you guys with everything that's happened to the Jeep lately.

    So I decided that I don't really like the dark that much, so I figured a light bar would help me out lol. So around Thanksgiving I saw that a lot of companies had their LED light bars on sale and figured there's no better time than now to pick one up. I found the company Tough Lights, a company based out of Cali with a background in off road racing lights, and decided to go with their 50" Pro series LED light bar. The light is 24,000 lumens and is 288 watts...so its bright as hell! Since the company didn't make any light bar mounts for a Jeep, I went over to Rough Country and got their light bar mounts for the JK.

    Here's a pic of the light bar mounted, which is pretty hard to do by yourself lol.

    The mounts were pretty easy to install, all you have to do is take off the 5 bolts on the windshield and then hold the mounts in place and put the bolts back on. I liked that the Rough Country mounts came with this little rubber backing for the mount so that it doesn't scratch up your paint. And the stock bolts are long enough to hold the mounts on and not fall off or anything, even though I've seen where some guys will go get longer bolts.

    Mount_wires[1].jpg
    The mount doesn't sit flush the entire length of the mount, so I just tucked the wire behind the mount to give it a sleeker look.

    I took off this little plate to run the wire underneath, all you need is a 10 torx bit to take them off.

    This is where the lights wires and the wiring harness come together. Tough lights also gives you about a 2 foot version with exposed wires in case you have a Spod.

    Fuse_thing[1].jpg
    I had to mount this little fuse that came with the wiring harness and the only place that I could find was in the battery box....it was a pain in the you know what to mount that little sucker in there because it needs to be as vertical as possible.

    Firewall_light[1].jpg
    Since my Jeep is a 6-speed, I couldn't use the same hole as everyone else does thats in the firewall because of my clutch, so I had to find a different path. This part probably took me 30 minutes to try and run that wire...I may have through around some cuss words here and there lol.

    Switch[1].jpg
    The wiring kit also comes with little switch to turn the light on and off, and since I couldn't really decide where I wanted to permanently place it, I just decided to zip tie it to the steering column for now

    The entire install took me about an hour maybe a little more. The majority of the time was spend running the wires for everything.
