yea it kinda sucks its 2wd but hey it was a gift I never go offroad but said what the hell lets do it, and to my surprise I didnt get stuck (maybe cause i got some decent offroad tires for the back), even tho the place wasnt all that muddy I had some fun, I might do it more often. Also my bad if the pics go to another section of the forums still new around here :P and hello from puerto rico

She is mostly stock, I have only changed the sound system. would like to do a lift kit in the future, paint the bumpers and rims and maybe a locker for some occasional fun.

So the other day I went to a Jeep show and got some lights for 25$ (the pair)


began by taking off the grill, making the holes for the mount



then I mounted the lights



and to power them up I just hooked them up to the fog lights below



finished look
