Wired up my oba on/off switch and ran the air line to it. Also cut more of the front bumper away. And I replaced the cabin air filter.

Really liking the look of the bumper now.

It doesn't seem to affect it at all. All of the structure is still present. Lets just say its refined.

So I picked up some IF roof light bar mounts from AZGeorge a while back waiting for the day to buy a light bar. Well that day happened. I picked up a 43" curved bar.
I was dreading the install though. I knew from when I had my Xoskel light cage that my rivnuts were all striped out. So I had a slow day last week and I figured that Id take a crack at it. Dropped the headliner and removed the rivnuts. I hate those things. I replaced them with bolts and mounted the brackets and light bar. Not bad I must say. Holy wow is it bright.
