    They replace just the headlight part that presses onto the adjusters.
    I did break one of the mounting parts on the adapters cuz I'm a dumba$$ and was hammering on it to get it to go on instead of sanding it down ever so slightly 100% my fault on that (See pic)
    Otherwise they pop right on, fairly straight forward after that.
    Heres a quick video of how they mount from the designer.

    Here are some more finished pics of the new headlights.

    You can barely see the white body that is behind the headlight assembly unless you're up close. Looks pretty factory.

    My quote must not have gone through, I was asking the guy who said they were thinking of making a start to finish video series on the build if they ever did so.

    And thank you! Love the color, canít decide between matte black or this kind of white for mine. I think Iím more of a fan of the black accents and not the full black out of black on black.

    Oh ok lol no the video was never made but he did make a pretty detailed step by step thread that outlines the whole build and what all goes into it.

    Yea black accents on white really do it for me.

    Installed some new rear sway bar end links, the end links I had were shot, they didn't like the slight offset the factory bar has.

    These are from clayton offroad. They are adjustable, anywhere from 8.6 to 13 inches (cut to size), I have mine set to 9 inches, i don't think these will work for stock rigs.
    Here is the link. https://www.claytonoffroad.com/produ...justable-front

    Yeah, probably not for stock setups. Just measured and both front and rear are about 5 inches center to center. You'd need rod that is threaded all the way I think to get it to fit, or at least threaded more than they have theirs.

    Agreed. You can probably fine some or fab up your own. IMO unless you want quick disconnects or something similar (or are lifted) the factory end links are fine.

    Installed the Schwarttzy skid plate. Since I have the SAS I only did the t-case plate. Had to slightly trim a couple corners, otherwise easy install.

    Made a quick hi-lift mount for the roof rails. I needed a place to put the jack, and it's too big to fit inside. I've seen other do this and figured I'd give it a shot.

    I also have a spare tire mount that goes through the center bore, unfortunately it's about an inch top short and the jack hits the tire before it can seat on the mount. I'll have to cut and re weld a longer piece of tubing on to make it work.

    Met up with some of the midwest offroad group at the badlands ORP in idnians today. Super crowded as the NAXJA winterfest was also happening there, so hundred or so jeeps and buggies all over the place. Fun day anyway!

    One a side note my service 4wd message came on. Everything shifts fine, so I'm not sure what's wrong. Plus it went away for the entire drive home and then showed up again after I washed the h3.
