    I don't have quite that much bling bling but I am picking up a 4x4 Iron Rock Rod, and a Warn Winch bumper. My buddy down in PHX picked up my Warn 12K winch I scored the other day for me. So this month has been good to me.

    Acutally I got the whole kit for 575 shipped, including the bulbs, ballast, and the H1 Conversion. I'll try and take some pics when the come out. It wasnt terrible, considering the fact that a good set of offroad lights would be about half that, and extra visability is priceless if it can avoid an accident.

    Nah, no richness, I've been eyeing that winch for like 2 years! Just finally decided to get it, and 4wheelparts was willing to match the online prices I found...I've been stuck twice, both really bad (You know the k5's ... we dont get mini stucks, we get the BIG stucks). And unfortunately the little jeeps, sami's and yodas never seem to be able to really get me out. Figured not being stuck for 10 hours is priceless.....

    To add to the list, I got the 1 cent 102" fiberglass whip from Radio shack, and 29.99 200 channel scanner...

    lol, being able to spend $575 on lights is rich to me!!! If I ever get offroad lights they will prolly just be the sub-$75 types. Combine that with a all-4-head-lights-at-the-same-time setup and it's all the light i need. I dont wheel at night anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
