seanbarg Finished my lighting conversion last night. At this point I have replaced everything but the fog light bulbs. These iPad pics are likely a little exaggerated but I'm worried the turn signals might be too bright and annoy other drivers.

-H9/9011 low/high headlight bulbs.
-Interior lights are 15 SMD LED panels (with smaller LEDs in the doors).
-Same 15 SMD panels were used for the license plate lights.
-Samsung 2835 15W LED turn signals and tail light bulbs. (with Flasher relay replacement)
-Cree LED Projector reverse lights.
-Parking/Side Marker lights are 5630 6 SMD LED bulbs which are very bright and give the front end a great look (note that no headlights were on in the pics, just these LEDs)

Overall I'm real pleased with how it all came out. And its easy to justify a lot of the bulb replacements for safety reasons.

Blue Fox Well, finally got the warranty debacle done with BFGoodrich. New set of 4 new BFGoodrich All-terrains for $308 installed. I still maintain that I shouldn't have had to pay anything for a defective tire with 2 others showing signs of the defect as well, but I was done being on the phone constantly.

Put on the new tires, re-installed the roof rack, re-installed the front light bar after needing to re-fit it and readjust the LED lights, and installed the sump guard which I'm releasing a video for here soon.

Acedrinker Don't mind at all. A good friend of mine owns a speed shop and does a lot of 4x4's. I'm not sure of the brand (I'll find out and report back). but the 30" light bar is the perfect fit and a lifetime warranty. I paid about $235 installed. I like the output far better than me buying the factory fog lights. I cannot stress enough how f*%king bright it is, straight ridiculous

91Yota Did an oil change and randomly decided to paint the Cooper logos on my snow tires. Figured why the hell not.

Wakawakawaka1 Today I got around to installing Curtis hitch (class III 2"x2" receiver) along with the wiring harness and had the car detailed and waxed.

In the past month, I have also installed the Rokblockz mud flaps, weathertech liners and full Primitive Racing under body armor.

Jgilber0 Checked the oil for the first time. 770 miles on the clock, and the dipstick is 1/4 above full. So far so good.

Acedrinker I'll let you know tomorrow what brand it is as the box is at my shop. I've had nothing but issues with aftermarket HID's. This led set is pretty nice. No warming up or flicker. Nice, crisp light that's really bright without annoyance. Some drivers still flash me but not too often.

thanks.

edit: i went on amazon just to see what would come up. there are conversion kits with the ballasts and wiring that are a direct plug-n-play. even the ones with dual beam are affordable. i just need one door a d2s socket. i only see ones for the convectional halogen sockets.

i wish i had seen all this before my HID retrofit.
