Thank you! I am super happy with it. I honestly don't even feel the need to make ANY changes right now. However, in the next year or two, a rear tire carrier is a must, so I have a place for my spare.

Added an ARB bumper.  Took way longer than I thought, but the plastic is cut perfectly.  Lots of little problems, but none were insurmountable.

Problem I discovered was the lights, when wired in parallel with existing lights (not headlights), caused the turn signals to fail.  I replaced the ARB bulbs with some LED's from Walmart (https://www.walmart.com/ip/UNIQUE-BARGAINS-2-Pcs-White-1156-13-5050-SMD-LED-Light-Bulb-Tail-Turn-Backup-Trailer-5007-1129/49026772) and they work perfectly.

Don't think I chose these bulbs at random - these bulbs require a shunt resistor to work as a direct replacement.  Their resistance is so high that turn signal systems will think the bulb has burned out - exactly what I needed when adding a bulb in parallel to the existing circuit.

So if we add a LED light in parallel with the blinkers it will function the same?
Do the ARB ones have 2 modes(low and high) as i like to run with the markers only on alot.

"It depends."

If the LED light is made to be a drop-in replacement, probably not.  Turn signal systems assume a high-resistance bulb is a burned out bulb and won't work properly (fast blink).  So many (most?) LED bulbs have a shunting resistor built-in (or optional) to fake out the turn signal to think it's an incandescent bulb.  I took advantage of that design and got a bulb that "requires a resistor to function" and put it in the socket which was in parallel with the existing signals.  And it worked.

Changed out the cabin air filters.  Finished connecting the lights and added a Blue Sun vinyl tat.

Don't tempt me - I can put another 32" bar in the center and the wiring is already there :)
