Well,
Finally got my new Wrangler, picked it up 70 miles north of where I live, and on the way back got an insane 23mpg haha

Specs as follows
2012 Jeep Wrangler JK Sport
3.6 Pentastar
15k Miles (when purchased) full warranty
6 Speed
Dana 30 and Dana 44
Soft top

Spent a lot of cash on this so I won't be doing anything to crazy right away, but I will be able to enjoy a Jeep again!

I'd definitely look into some Smittybilt stuff. They have some sick fenders and bumpers and grilles for Jeeps. It's crazy how nice you can make those Jeeps look with a few small mods.

Yeah, its super easy to make them unique so I'll definitely take a look at some of their stuff.

 

nice color!!

First one I've seen in person in this color. Definitely something different, but I really like it. :)

A couple pics of the interior. I'm hoping the JL subs will fit to the left and right of the black "Jeep" mat in the back.

Got my HIDs today...

55 watt Hi/Lo 6000k

55 watt Fog 6000k

15 watt reverse lights 4300k

 

Installed all of em and tested em that night.

Fog lights are so flipping bright I may not be able to use them during regular driving, regardless they need to be aimed down quite a bit, right now they're aimed in line with my high beams. Got flashed 4 times and shut em off.

 

Low Beams are so much better than the stock halogens, however they need to be aimed as well.

 

High beams are a billion times better than the stock high beams, rarely used them. It would be better if I could run the fog lights with them, but whatever.

 

Reverse lights are better than stock, but I'm still not sold on them. Before I bash them too much I will wait and see how they are over the next couple days.

 

Hi/Lo/Fog lights were all purchased from DDM. Yes DDM. 4th order from them and still 100% satisfied. Total order was around $120.

 

Reverse lights were purchased from an Amazon store, BlackWater MotorWerks. $49.99. These are yet to be justified, but we'll see.

 

I have ordered quite a few other items, for the Raptor and the Jeep, that are going to be here sometime next week so be sure to check out the build logs in my signature.

That looks awesome. Just lift that bitch and get some bigger tires and new rims :drink40:


 

The spot with least resistance LOL.

I would ground to a rubber dildo if it had less resistance than a run of 4/0 wiring.

 

 

 

how many poeple work there 3 or 4 lol

 

At crescendo HQ? probably 2-3

At the sweatshop in china? 30,000 children
