    Sorry, never really been a fan of aftermarket fender liners. IF I needed to remove the factory ones for any reason, it'd be for something like coilovers. Not sure about price point but I'd can almost guarantee you that it'll be more affordable than what the competition out there is selling theirs for.

    They really do have a nice factory look to them.

    Unfortunately, I don't know when but it should be soon now. We wouldn't have gotten these if they weren't almost ready to go with them.

    Thanks! I've been slowly cutting them away to accommodate things like our coilovers and now the DRLs but making sure to keep as much of them in place as I can

    Being able to keep the inner fender liners or at least, most of it was definitely a feature that I LOVE about these Rugged Ridge DRLs. I have to say that I also really love how they designed their brackets with the base and lower lip or edge on them. It really helps to complete and define the DRLs in a factory kind of way.

    Not sure if I missed it in the video but do the RR ones give that error for removing the factory DRLs? I ended up with just going with AEVs prosnap and not the Tazer so I dont think I'd be able to eliminate that.

    Cool DRLs and detailed video. What I dont like has something to do with the fender liners, which I think is good to keep. The transition from the DRL to the outer black framing of the fender is not that nice looking so far. But this is hard to fix....really hard
    Anyway, the chopped look from the front looks amazing!

    I've been told that production kits will NOT have the bulb error.

    Okay, I just spoke with Rugged Ridge and got some info on when these will be available and what they'll most likely MSRP for. Rubicon DRL brackets will start shipping late April and ones for Sport/Sahara will ship early June. Expected price point will be $299.

    Wow Eddie you did it again. Your drlís are a game changer for me. Way better than stock. I sometimes felt the oem look was unfinished. Donít be surprised if Mopar ďupdatesĒ a new design because of these. Iím sure they are watching. Great job.
