      Yes I was wanting to know about the amber fogs, such as why you use them, where they come from, do they work better in certain conditions etc. Thanks so much.

      The yellow is supposed to penetrate through the fog better than white light. Don't know if that's true but for me I prefer the look of it that's all.

      What do you all think about a hood mount? I can't decide whether it looks better on the roof or not.

      Definitely on the roof, maybe even to the front of the roof rack instead of drilling holes in the roof.

      Definitely the roof and I would mount it on the rack. That will get the lights a little higher so they can project a little further down the trail.

      How tight are those 15s against the caliper bracket and steering knuckle? Also how much lift are you going to use

      How are you on lift height with that combo? I have same spacers and tires, but also body lift. Not sure if I wanna just not do body lift or do 1.5 inch or maybe even 3". How do you like that height, plan on going any higher?

      I thought I'd finally post in here. Nothing special, but I'm just getting started. 4 piece billet grille, crazy bright LED fogs (a new one is on the way due to a defect)
      [​IMG]
      [​IMG]
      Spyder LED tails and license plate lights,
      [​IMG]
      LED interior and puddle lights (they light it up like its daytime. Here's the link http://www.hidextra.com/razir-festoon-2-smd-5050-36mm-white-pair/
      [​IMG]
      4th gen mirrors as well. Plans for the near future include: taillight and 3rd brake light tints and 3rd brake light LED swap, LED pods in for spot fog lights behind fog light covers (I got rid of faded plastic and made my own aluminum mounts, so it is empty behind the billets), stealth LED bar behind upper or lower grille (all controlled with a 3- gang switch from Amazon), flush- mounted LED switch- controlled reverse lights (where I dented the rear bumper I'm gonna cut out holes for them) possible can lights and tow hooks (thanks to the threads out there), and hopefully a full brush guard protecting black headlight assemblies. Also paint is needed badly and I have typical rusts over rear wheels.

      I have 285/50-20s on a 3rd gen. Had to use 5/16 spacers to get suspension clearance and they rub the fender liners. Had to use a heat gun to make the proper clearance.

      At the time all I had was 2"spacer up front and 1.5" rear. I did trim the front inner fender a bit though
