I got rid of the 31x10.5x15s muddin tires, and Got some 33x12.5x15 BFG All Terrains.

Mounted already.



Turned out a bad idea, I took it mudding and banged the **** out of the fenders.



Now I need new fenders and to re-paint them...

A few days ago, I took the two baja fog lights off the stock bumper and added two new 6" offroad HID lights.



I then took the bajas and installed them on the rear bumper, Under of course.



It was the easiest yet, just removed the two bumper bolts and put the light brackets there and it was a perfect fit

I wired up both the switches.

Front-

I planned on putting 4 baja lights on the roof.

Instead my girlfriends dad, gave me two free brand new, Hella Baja style lights. BRIGHT



I added them quickly and installed a new switch where the stock Fog one should be.

I just ran it quickly, so I'm not even going to bother and show you, Loose wiring for now, I'm not too worried bout it till I get my lightbar.

I drilled a hole near the rack wall, and ran them down though.




I need new headliner, so it would be covered, but for now it just waits.

Allignment should be easy for a shop to do on yours. Nice build, however your rear lights may become an obstruction to your departure angle. Just a thought. Also trim your front fenders and add some bumpstops. You'll stop munching those up.

I'm doing the alignment myself, I'm 18 and broke, Got 15$ to my name right now. So trying to do it myself.

Spent all my money on that bumper -_-

I'm so mad now thought. My tackbar don't fit...
And I don't have 60$ to get an adjustable one.

My Bumper just Arrived minutes ago Looks alot sturdier then I thought It'd be.

A few minor mounting adjustments and all should be well
