I mounted mine on the bumper, they are "trailer" lights from Tractor Supply. The two outer lights are wired as blinkers, and the inners as brake lights. All four come on with regular lights

I didn't mount mine to the rear cage i mounted mine higher up. I used LED lights (same size as crestfallens) only difference is they are dual filament so mine act as taillights and brake lights. Easy install (we bent a piece of aluminum angle iron and drilled up into the support right above them) and they sit higher up so i am very happy with them. Brighter than crap too, When i hit the brakes at night i can turn around and see the red glow on everything within a few hundred yards lol. Laughing

heres a link

Not from california, but use photobucket or another web hosting site for pics.

Upload and copy the "IMG code" and paste in the text boxes of websites to post

The FB link is not working.

By "Prundale" do you mean "Palmdale" or "Fresno" or ???

I need some coilover shocks that will lift my bug 2-3 inches
Does anybody know of any?

My brother lives in Ben Lomond and works in Watsonville, but I'm not familiar with Prundale.

There are cheap and cheesy EMPI and Latest Rage coilovers that bolt on stock mounts. The coils are poor quality chrome and the shocks are even poorer quality. If you will only use it on pavement, they will serve. But don't expect a whole lot of lift or shock performance from them.

For offroad use you're better off rotating the torsion bars and putting on some real socks. At least KYB Gas-A-Just that cost a little less than the coilovers.

Also
I need to mount a spout for my gas tank
In the front
through the fiberglass tilt hood
So it need to be able to still tilt up
So I can work with the electrical
What is the best way to do this?

Also Hood clips
What are good hood clips for the side of my fiberglass hood?
