Craigslist score.. Only things I had left to source are fog lights, lightbar, and winch, so I almost didn’t check craigslist last night. So Glad I did. It is a 3 piece bar, so it may need shortening, as typically these are a bit tall. But that easier then building one from scratch. $40! Also once I got it home I tried lining up the holes, and they do not match the existing bolts, so perhaps this was from a TJ? I can deal with redrilling correct holes though.

I managed to pick up three Jabsco 135SL searchlights from eBay for the lightbar on the Jeep. These are the real deals as found on Jeep #12 in the movie. They are fully motorized and able to rotate and sweep almost the entire area of the Jeep! They normally retail for $200, but I managed to pick up these three for about $120 each. I just need to find one more.
I have decided not to do the go-lights, simply because they cost about $250-$300 each, and there are four of them. Add that to my hesitation of putting anything that can be easily unbolted and walked away with, and no fucking way. I’m already terrified about someone stealing my winch, to the point of asking a buddy to leave tacks of weld on the bolts once I get it on. I currently have two light bars, the one you see in the pictures will have lights attached to it, and the other will just be a bare-bones bar like in the opening scenes. The one in the pictures is a little taller than I’d like it to be, but from my best estimates it is the same height as those in the movie.
