What is the beam pattern? I do not care too much for pencil beams for night drives and have found a fondness for the Euro pattern which gives you good range and width and like flood for side and rear lighting. My LED is a euro pattern and it lights up the down slopes like a footie stadium. :D I use to use cheap lights but have replaced so many due to rot that I save my pennies and fils for quality now. See if they can give you a night demonstration of them before you buy.

That is a good question. I am not sure but I think they are euro, I had a little look in the shop during the day and it seemed to be pretty spread out, he has the round ones and some rectangular though so I will take a look at both first and see which has the best beam pattern. I will get back to you about this matey, I am going there later today to take another look.

Cheers Eric

Tintin....which shop on Salaam are ou referring to ? Black Tiger also has some nice lights.

Me personally I would go for the KC round ones !

What is the price.

If you are looking for LED's then our friend Overdose has some great contacts that will get you a very good price.

BTW I hope you don't have a joint account with the MOI ! :D

The lights were bought from Hi-Cool on salam street, very nice guy who said he will give a discount for club members. Many little nick nacks for FJ losers too!!!

They are roof lights, not the greatest but will do for now mate.

Fitted my rear crown adjustable lower control arms yesterday at a 1/4" longer than stock. So much smoother than teh stock as they are flex joints at the frame end so no binding at full flex. Plus teh adjustment levelled out the pinion angles again, mucho torqueo!!! Time for the front ones next weekend I think!!!

Seems I am the only one interested in sharing my mod info here eh?
Recently I flushed and burped my Radiator as it was showing strange heat symptoms. Sorted that one.
I also built a storage box in the back that will stop my tools, recovery equipment, compressor and general offroading stuff flying around. I will be carpeting it tonight.
I still have to fit my front control arms and front bump stop extensions as it got a little too hot now and I am in no rush as the fronts are still in OK condition.
I just ordered a Stant 180* t-stat and gasket, and will be ordering a JET stage 2 performance chip at the end of the month.
After that will come my 3.5" lift with steel braided brake lines extensions, double shear front adjustable track bar, adjustable rear track bar, extended sway bar links front and back, doetstech 8000 shocks.
Hopefully that will be all I need to get the beast where I want, but then again, I do own a ZJ so more is probably to come.

Oh yeah, and I got a new airfreshener. COOL!!! :D
