Oh, I'm also getting custom storm chasing sillouttes done for each side of the Cherokee and along the kick panels for the doors in a color that matches the paint it'll read weather chaser. Then along the bottom of the tailgate I'll have, smile you're on camera, since people like to tailgate.

Alright, took my rig to the guy that was going to install the lights. I warned him we don't have a "frame" or even frame like things underneath. So when he crawls under he looks up and goes, well this'll be tricky. But, he has a plan. He actually makes the pods and strips custom for each application, like down to each diode. It's really cool. So he's gonna do strips down each rail protected by an acrylic bulge type thing? Then in the front he's gonna put pods on the crash beams and the rear he's gonna mount pods on the rear sub frame. He guaranties his work. If I light fails, he will replace it. I break a light off, he will rewire it AND replace it.

Turns out he ships his kits nation wide. So once he figures out how to do my Cherokee he should have a good idea what would be required for any TrailHawk with RRO sliders.

Had to change the way my cherokee was sealed on the roof. The old way leaked really badly and I had to have my interior treated.

Just ordered this kit for the airbags so I can keep them filled all the time. Got tired of filling them by hand every few days. Got it on amazon for only 200$ and there is currently a 75$ mail in rebate which means it's only 125$! What a steal.

Well, I got my air compressor kit and Tuesday it gets installed. Kind of stole MFCs center console idea but going a different route. No fault of his I just need it done sooner. And instead of using rocker switches I'm gonna leave my area blank for now and buy barrel switches from like plasmaglow.

Saturday my rock lights get installed so I'll have pictures up soon of what that looks like.

Then also next Tuesday I'm getting Whalen strobes installed to replace my current strobes that keep going out. I'm getting model number TIONA. 8 of them. 4 on the roof and then 4 on top of each wheel well to cover the sides. Only the roof ones are getting done on Tuesday. The others are gonna have to have mounts made. I'm doing side strobes for side viability.

Amber strobes I hope. Keeping things legal. Of course depending on your state and occupation.
