Will do all four with extra in case you want abit more.

Clean the plastic liner with 90% and stick it on. GTG.
Could scuff the plastic with 0000 steel wool before alcohol cleanse for a even better adhesion.

LED's in your fenders will show nothing.... your levelled with tires. Can't see anything. If you want lights, put a lightbar behind grill.

I have use the led strip lighting and I have also used led pods. Then other people I know used the rigid rock lights.

I personally like the led pods so far the best. pretty cheap and easy to install. I bought 100 off of ebay for 50$

These are them, I search 4 led module.



The reason I switched to these is because I kept having the led strips go out or random leds in the strip would go out. So far I have had zero issues with these pods.

The rigid ones are nice just super expensive.

If you plan doing any serious mods to the suspension soon I would wait so you can place them correctly and remember you want to see the glow from the light and not the actual light
