Hey freaks, I finally made it home from the deployment and tomorrow I'm picking up the 2014 jeep wrangler sport dune. Looks like all the parts ive put on order have made it to the front porch so tomorrow is going to be a long day, just a quick teaser of things to come in the following days.40005

Congratulations on the soon to be toy! Good to hear you made it back here in one piece to enjoy the pleasures you've been waiting for.

haha sooo for the bumper I have I can put in a 20'' light bar, buuuttttt in my infinite wisdom I forgot to order the light bar, anybody have any good suggestions on what to go with? I havnt even began to look around for one and I dont want to spend 660 dollars for one either.

Sounds like an Ace pro series up front! With the JW speakers I doubt you'll need a high dollar light bar. I went with a black box logistics bar.

Skip towards the end of 'jw speakers, worth the money' thread to see what your lights will look like.

haha yup ace engineering it is and I love the look of these headlights more pics of all the other parts will show up in a little bit once I get back home. How do you like the black box logistics bar?

10-28-2013, 09:25 PM
It's bright for what it is- a single row 10" bar in the spot mode. I would go flood if I were to do it again but certainly give black box a call. They were spot on to responding to questions when I sent an email at 8p Sunday night.

the black box are right in price range i will be giving them a call in the morning, just wondering how quick were they on delivery

They're in Louisiana and I'm in Virginia- they sent the bar out Monday morning with tracking info and it was Wednesday night that I had it, standard UPS shipping.

I know that a few of the important things arent here like lift kit and tires so before you say something I do have a plan for these but I am waiting until after I drive to California, just thinking about gas mileage and the engine break in period do want to put to much stress on the jeep right away plus those and gears will come at the same time.

So sorry for no pics yet guys everything is put on but somebody broke into my jeep the other night and stole my tools, camera, and cowboy hat... Who steals a hat. Anyways sadly there will be no before and after pics just after, once I get some things fixed.

That's horrible, sorry to hear that.

Not sure if you ordered a light bar yet but olympus offroad has their zeus light bars and they are coming out with a single row that should work in there pretty soon.

I did order one but rigid industries lost my order but they replaced it and I had it two days after I called them great customer service from them.
