    Appreciate ya'll stopping by !

    Yes, My car was already on jack stands but still i had to drop the suspension and then use jacks under each wheel (LCA) to jack up the suspension while fighting with it to get things to align. I found I had to jack up both sides LCA to get this to fit on at the same time for both sides. But on my passenger side the the hole near the passenger door was not lining up and that back portion of the plate was raised which didn't allow the bolt to come up through high enough to get a nut on. I'm sure the bar was level, so if anything this bar will show you how crooked your car is :P :P

    I actually had to use some wood/blanket and a hammer to force the passenger side on, and I sure didn't want to strip the bolts of the strut tower (Tein Super Streets). Now i need to mark the holes on the firewall which looks equally as challenging and remove it again to drill these holes, etc.

    So ya... , this bar is a really really really tight fit, which is great! But if you have to remove the bar to remove something else below it, ohh my. It will be a lot of work. If a mechanic ever has to work on this car I feel bad for them because you know the bar will be the last thing they add only to realize they need to take a bunch of shit apart again

            Update:
            Well I got all of the doors installed again and all the wiring LEDs are installed. This weekend I'll test them out and pray that everything works. I need to finish the JDM to USDM mirror swap and then wire in the relay for these and then I can test these too! After this only thing left to do is get the ESP front upper strut bar fully installed and then work on that fuse box extender wire.

            Oh... ya, going to have to finish that transmission too

              I'm not going to lie, but i just spent 4+ hours installing this traction bar. Seriously difficult to have every hole lined up perfectly. I had to widen the holes 2mm on one side to get the shocks up and through. Then you have to drill the perfect holes into the firewall section. Lowering the suspension each time you want to mark and drill a hole, I even tried lowering that corner of the car, but it didn't help. I found I had to put my passenger side on first, then the driver side. So difficult to install, but so stiff to get on it will make the car super great! It really feels like the car is crazy stiff now.













              Cheers!

                Yes!!! Good job!

                I struggled and failed to put mines on. I have to give it another round of fighting.

                    Part of me thinks i should of had it painted green, meh. Latest I've been wanting to paint the car all green. The lips, skirts, spoiler, and have the car all green, then add accents (wind visors, bra, etc). Right now the lips and skirts are the accents.

                    But tonight i went at it agian. Finished splicing in the relay for the mirrors. Also wired up the LED door light switches, and any power needed for other items. This all comes together behind the stereo, each wire lengthened, with a proper connector, hopefully no issues. Thinking tomorrow I am going to hook up the battery and cross my fingers that all electrical works. Was a lot of work.

                        Sooo another night. Tested all the LED lights, mirrors, etc. Connected the battery and two front door puddle lights did not work and when folding the mirrors one would go out when one was coming in

                        So an hour later and things were solved. Had the two wires for the mirrors connected the wrong way, de-pinned the connector, switched them and problem solved. Also had the wires backwards for the puddle lights in the front. In honesty I probably soldered the wrong wire to the positive for the LED, but problem solved.

                        On a negative note, when i connected the battery tonight, my boost solenoid started ticking. Loud enough that it sounds like I have a cigg tire pump under the hood. I'll have to look into this as from what I'm reading this is a normal sound...... but I've never heard it before. I guess it only activates when needed.... dunno.


                        Picture does not do this justice...




                        Also finished this spidery looking thing, kind of. ...

                          Nice, job on the puddle lights. I put mine in a similar place, but I think yours are a lot more intense.

                            Thanks, still not what i thought they would be. I was hoping for a larger circle of light, more spread out. Like that jeep picture a few pages back, that is what i was hoping for. Oh well, maybe I'll try some others another time.

                            And these.................

                            They do not work in the door lights. They fit, they work when connected to 12V. And the reason is the resistor built into the OEM light. I should of thought of this before. The resistor drains the power slowely to the light to give it that fade when you close the door. But because of this these LEDs do not work in the door. Oh well...

                              Finished the JDM to USDM mirror swap. Turned out great and now I have Power folding OEM USDM mirrors

                              I must admit, finishing this mirror swap was a chore. From getting the mirrors, relays, and switch. Then to figuring out what wires to use for what mirror function. Then wiring the 2 extra wires required for the folding function. De-pinning and re-pinning wires, finding the right location for the relay box, running power to 12V ignition, swapping the guts into my mirrors (oh, the rusty screws will not come out without an impact screw driver), etc. It was nice to finish this one!

                                I ordered some black door handles for the car. I may try the other fenders again, i"m not sure. Currently left on the list before summer is
                                - Put stereo back in (stereo, speaker pods, amp, subs, connect everything)
                                - Find a way to secure the cd5 side skirts better
                                - Put fenders and bumper back on (connect all lights)
                                -
                                - figure out what to do with that dam fuse box....

                                and probably do an oil change...
