    Just got my Saturday project today slowly but surely my bad boy will be looking pretty swell! I got these to put on and when the weather is warmer my 1.5in avid lift kit I'll post pics of what my renegade looks like when I put the eyes and grille covers on!

    Do you have a link for the grill covers? Are they just stick on over the existing covers or do you have to remove the originals? I am looking forward to your thoughts about the install of the 1.5 Avid lift. I am thinking of doing the lift and getting the contour bumper. I want some recovery points for my Latitude when driving on the beach when I go fishing.

    Honestly I just bought em from amazon, they are stick on so hopefully all goes well. I'm pretty excited about putting my lift on although it wont be for a few months probably due to weather >_<

    Thanks for the reply. I like the black look on the grill rather than the chrome.

    So my Saturday project was interrupted but here is before and after with the eyes on. I suggest getting some more double sided 3m super strength tape though. 20190112_150648.jpg 20190112_142617.jpg

    Thanks for the photos. I definitely like the black look rather than the chrome. I will order a set but without the eyes. I am looking forward to your thoughts on the lift install when your weather warms up. Thanks again.

    Finally got time to install these bad boys I pick em up at autozone and they work great, I have had em on for about a week with no trouble. I purchased the valkyrie off road ditch pod light holders since the lights didnt come with any. It was easy to install and took 45 mins to get it all set up here are some pictures in daylight and night time, the night pics arnt to great as my phone camera isnt to great but I promise in person it looks great! 20190319_175422.jpg 20190319_175445.jpg 20190319_175511.jpg 20190321_224851.jpg 20190321_224921.jpg 20190321_224934.jpg 20190321_224947.jpg

    What's the origin story behind the one colored grill piece?

    To be honest I'm not to sure, when I first saw it though I immediately knew I wanted to do it. So as I waited for my grille to dry from being cleaned I spray painted the one red. I honestly love how it stands out and like it better than just having a flat black grille. Not to mention I'm the only renegade in my area with mids like this so needless to say it's pretty unique to me.

    Ah, more LED additions. This time I just upgraded my drls to lumen led lights, next will be my headlights. Hopefully I'll get the time off work to finally do my lift as well. Sorry I dont have a before picture but here is how my drls look now.

    can you speak a little regarding installing those particular ditch lights? Did you wire a toggle switch inside somewhere? Can I see how you did that?

    They took about 45 mins for me and my buddy to.install. I purchased the valkyrie ditch light holders and the install was very straight forward. As for the wiring, I didnt have to do a toggle switch, the lights are bluetooth activated so they can be on or off by the press of a button on my phone. I'll take some pictures up close so you can see where the holders are placed and how they go in. I lost the instructions but the holders were like 45 bucks I think? Maybe more so I apologize if it is more.

    What size are the wheels? I am searching through your posts and haven't found it. I may be blind though....
