New rack

Just picked this 06 Commander with 4.7, 84k miles up yesterday. Already had parts waiting. Installed rack today. LED lights are sitting in garage. Waiting for it to cool down out here and then time to do some camping. Added some new junk to the back as well.

Looking good AZJ.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Nice Rack! I said that out loud when looking at your pix, and my wife is wondering what I'm looking at on the Internet now.

I'm not arguing, I'm just explaining why I'm correct.

Still waiting on a few more items. Need to figure out where I will mount this as well. Should be able to get all the relays and fuses mounted tighter together.

Nothing name brand. Believe it is "cutequeen " off Amazon. 36 watt cree. Believe for all four it was around $60. I have a budget and just don't want to break the bank on one single item.

Yep, I understand.

Whenever you order any kind of LED Light pods or bars - always try to make sure they have some kind of built-in venting, so they don't get condensation inside the lens a few weeks after you install them.

That's typically what happens with the cheaper light pods/bars on the market.

Got it. I figure for the price. If they don't last long then lesson learned. At least the wiring will all be done.
