    Finished light bar wiring. For less than 150 bucks total. I'm happy with this thing. Been raining for 2 days straight, no water intrusion so far.

    What size did you go with on you lightbar? Just read through everything in your build thread. Coming along well for sure.

    Thanks. I've enjoyed building it. I went with a 42. It fits just perfect on the roof rack bars. If you end up doing something similar, hit me up if you need some tips. I made my own brackets for mounting it and ran wiring down the windshield rubber.

    With the prices on their bars it is hard not to. Definitely on my list and I liked the pictures you showed me of the brackets you made. I will definitely hit you up whenever the time comes. Probably going to be a bit but definitely on my list.

    Is this the one you ordered?

    Yep, that's the one. It does not come with wiring though. I got the wiring from Rigid for like 30 bucks. I don't remember the part #, but just look at the wiring for a similar light bar on their site. Rigid's light is almost the identical specs to the eyourlife. The only thing I didn't like about the harness is that the switch wiring itself was very short, I had to extend it to make it work.

    Good to know. Thank you very much for the help. Definitely going to add this to my list on ebay and hopefully get there sometime.

    Did you do any thing to the head lights? My low beams suck. High beams are ok. Its just a daily driver but out where I live it still gets really dark.

    I wanna see the photos of you shoving the 10 pounds of shit into the 5 pound bag, i.e., you installing the winch rope onto the drum of your Zeon!
    I'm going to attempt that tomorrow. Looks like lotsa fun!

    I didn't mess with the headlights. I did get a generic buffing wheel kit for my drill at Sears that came with rubbing compound. I cleaned them up and that definitely helped, but I agree the low beams suck. Most of the other guys with WJs say they've cleaned them 3-4 times and eventually replacing them was the only thing that helped.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
