I get that a lot.

Yes light covers are prototype customs as is the rear spoiler, originally we just had an aluminum Gurney flap. You can see I experimented with Airtabs on the roof as well.

Thanks, not really, there is a bit more throw away light, but the lights seem to work just as effectively; and we drove under moonless skies in the desert.

Yeah, I have an 86 AMC Jeep
a 92 Chrysler Jeep
and now a 91 Comanche, that I will be fully and extensively aero-modding...taking it to the extreme.
