Smile scrambler winch brush guard kc lights added

well filled in the low spots a little but still have some more to go before final paint so welded in a coupe of light mounts and just had to try them to see how they looked... here in the midwest lucky no body bothers you on additional offroad lights... as long as you dont turn them on with the state guys coming at you your be fine.. i only would use on the road the very bottom lights with are yellow fog lights.. all the others only off road... what do you think.....

Looopking good. Now you need a 120-grit flap disk for your angle grinder. It will slick up those welds.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

I think they won't last long in the woods or on a gravel road. And when you need them they will have been pushed out of alignment by brush. And that they'd work better if they were mounted to shine towards the opposite side of the Jeep so that the light could spread out more.

I also think that your brush guard is looking good with the paint on it.

i would mount the lights in the bumper ends.. where it is angled back towards the tire.. that way they would shine out at what looks like a 45 degree angle.. might have to go with smaller lights.. but that would be tight.. recess them in there..
