I prefer the generic 4" round LED ones for brake lights and some little 1-2" white ones for back up lights.

The Savvy lights would be my first choice but LiteDOTs are also nice. The LiteDOTs have been redesigned and, as far as we can tell, eliminated the failure issue they had in the past.

If you don't want a flush mount the Savvy's are definitely bad ass.

I really like the look of stock taillights, but I feel like I'm in the minority on that one.

yesterday I finished up my lighting, I used JK front signals and mounted them in the grill. For the rear I used a set of the trucklite LEDs from Napa. I also install my safari top and tonneau cover.

Lightforce lights are on, mounted my fire extinguishers so I don't have a repeat of last year. I also pulled the factory rear bumper and tire carrier so I can install the swing out tonight.

Just out of curiosity, how did you mount the JK turn signals?

Drilled a 3" hole with a hole saw then used a carbide bit in my dremel to make it bigger until the pushed in. The nice thing about the JK lights is that the TJ bulb holder pops right in so you don't need to re wire.

I have the ACOS set to about 2" right now but I will probably go with a claytons down the road. First I want to do a tummy tuck, get the cage beefed up, lockers, front bumper and winch, upgrade the D30. So for now I am going to rock a LCOG jeep.

So a few weeks ago our very own kjdavis contacted me about a new company that he was starting KD Fabworks, So last Sunday Kim and I went down to Oregon City to pickup a couple of his new products. I had a little time to prep, paint and mount it today so here his new bumper and winch fairlead.

The product is nice and solid, and I really like the clean design. Stay tuned for new products coming soon. Also check him out at www.kdfabworks.com.
