Well, provided it is not his own eye...
Its nicely secured in the sheath. Put a bit of work into it. Stripped the epoxy coating sanded it to a nice finish and etched it. Cant see it so much in the pic but its nice. Had it laying in the door storage since i got this jeep. So glad i found a great spot to mount it. The knife is a Kabar-Becker BK-16.
I see you have the OME 927/948 combo... top plate and extra iso, looks about 3" overall in lift? Looks good.
I like how this KJ is turning out. Well done.
Got some leds from ebay. Yotamotor is the brand advertised as 7”. That dimension is the overall width. Got them in a flood style. I still need to clean up the wiring. To install them i removed the brushguard and drilled it mounted the lights extended the wires. With the lights on the guard i reinstalled it and ran the extended wiring under the guard to the divers side of the grill slots. Went into the engine compartment there behind the rubber stuff that seals the radiator to the grill. Once in the engine bay its smooth sailing. I got a harness as well with a relay and switch bought a add a fuse to make it real easy. Still have to mount the switch at its forever home and zip tie extra wires. I think it turned out better than expected. I used extra rtv around the lights lens and housing to better seal them.
I actually dont have any extras no top plate no clevis nothing. Looks tall cause i am still on stock size tires. But thank you for the compliment. I havnt taken any measurements since i first did the lift i was 3” to 3-1/4” over where i was. I can do some measuring later today.
Finished up the wiring and mounted my switch in its forever home. I have the switch wired to have a halo when on and no light when off looks really bright just the camera glare i guess.
So have you officially named your KJ Chiquita yet? :gr_grin:
The funny thing is just this year i became allergic to pineapples. So to find a chiquita pineapple sticker under the guard was kinda ironic. I lived 27yrs loving them literally my favorite fruit.
I got out and measured 21” up front and 21.5” in the rear. Might be a little higher as this was parked on the street and my street happens to have a pretty heavy pitch.
Separate names with a comma.
