I actually it my own 3/16 steel and everything going to cut and box it forgot to mention the upper control arm mount weld snapped so going to make a new one right away

But I'd say heartbreaking especially since money is hard to comeby as a college kid with no job and tuition to pay 😞

Saving these links...might switch one of these days....with my KC fog replacements and my KC slimlights rarely do I have any issues...but for $100 it is almost a no brainer.......and can than use the "smaller" bulbs to replace...easier to store as well......

My new gas tank straps and skid plate were delivered today. Looks like a productive weekend coming up!

PaddysPub Last night got around to spraying my side/turn markers with some VHT Nightshades and repainted my headlight bezels gloss black. Dont worry, they're not as dark as they look, this is in the garage at work.

"Babe, the torque converter on the flux capacitor threw a heim joint in the emission control valve on the CCV in the gearing of the axles. What this means Love is that the axles are shot and the Rubi is unsafe to drive. Should only cost about $700 to fully replace both axles! Btw, I'm heading out to the woods this weekend. I'll fix it when I get back."

You don't think you are going to flip it end for end? Would scare the shit out of me.

I used those plus some 80/100 watt H4's (off road only......) and an upgraded harness from Susquehanna motor sports for less than $200 total. Honestly 100x better than stock. Pics don't do it justice. And I never get flashed.

I will have to change my bulbs about 10 times to get to the price of a set of trucklites and doubt it will happen. Still on my 1st set over a year now.

I was there with the encode route, but went w the trucklites since I don't have to worry about when a headlight will go out and the low amp draw of LEDs. I thought the difference was worth it to me. However, your route is a good one as well. Either way is clearly a much better setup than stock..
