I’ve had mine, same ones, for about a year. I really like them. Way brighter than the Silverstar 605s4 I had before. They are DOT also. Well at least say DOT on them.

Finally decided to put the Bullbar on the XJ. Got a great deal off Amazon, almost $20 off and free shipping with Prime. Not hard to install, clearances a little tight on 2 of the bolts due to my winch. Everything bolted up fine. Mounted 2 sets of lights but unsure if I'm leaving it that way. Looks great IMHO.

You know. I worried about the lights blocking airflow. But since having done my fan upgrade, and my engine temps staying at or below normal, during highway speeds, I don't think that would be an issue.

So when I upgraded my battery cables I kinda Mickey Moused my fog light ground and power to the relay.
Made it better today. If everything goes according to plan this is just temporary.
Next year I hope to have a central place for all relays and an aux fuse box.
A Quick squirt of Fluid Film on the battery cables is all that is left.
With some luck this is the last time I will work on the Jeep till next Spring.

One last thing to do.
Swapped out the summer air in my tires for winter air. LOL.

Were your tires made in the USA? If not you need imported air

If you have an ECM, it is up under the dash behind the speedometer

Cooper Discovery HT's baby.
Made in the good old USA.
The Tupelo, MS plant to be exact.
Nothing but the best domestic air for my tires. LOL.

So once again I could not stop myself.
$38 and whatever a 30 mile round trip cost me in gas. Found them on Craigslist.
Brand new. Funny thing is that Googling the part number nothing comes up.
And they are 5 ton. Which I find odd. Thinking jack stands come in 2, 3, 6, etc ton.
My boss at the store had an idea. May be part of a kit.
Maybe a homeowner thing sold through someplace like Home Depot.
I think I read that Lincoln Welders sold through Home Depot are not quite
the same as one you could get from somewhere that is not a big box store.
Similar thing maybe.
Hey they still say Made In USA. LOL.

Those are the good ones. I have both sizes, but I use the tall ones the most

Got it on the road for the 1st time since the build! Put about 50 miles on it just running around town, checking for leaks, adjusting brakes and overall giving it a shakedown. 315s goin on this Wednesday

Thanks @Gluckmysock @4.3L XJ !!

As you've seen alot of work getting to Here! Just finished some odd ball painting. Hit my exhaust with some high temp paint so it wasn't tri colored and painted a good heavy coat of that equipment paint from the framerail out to rockers where the floor is in a high impact area. Hoping to ward off any unwanted rust. Didn't do the frame since I plan on stiffners and the less I have to grind in the spring the better.

Rock and roll boys. 35s are next
