Bankrupter is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Midnight I know you like the higher head light pattern of the lifted truck but you need to re aim them so your low beams are not blinding to oncoming traffic. Looks good!

The truck went up 2" in the front and 2.5" in the rear. I don't the low beams to be about the same distance away on the road. The headlight pics are after the HD harness and the lift. There's not much of a difference. Here's a before and after at about 20' away from the house. They are basically the same height....

It's still pretty close to stock. I'm thinking the 1/2" higher in the rear was enough to make It lower. ( I might not be in the exact spot in both pictures. But in the same distance back as I backed up to my shed)

Took me bout an hour to wire the lights in not hard to do.

The bulbs are not the stock ones. They are suppsed to be "white" light, got them as a gift so I'll use them till they burn out

thats good, i suck at electrical. I did silverstar ultras on wifes car an the results between our 2 almost look the same. Now i'm thinking about running the lights on her jeep to the batt. Trucks looking good, a small lift like u did makes these trucks look so much better, just enuff, an not too much.

fount out that my inner tierod end at the pietman arm is loose. looks like the nut backed off but the cotterpin is still in it. so i just ordered a full steering linkage kit of ebay with both outer and inner pieces and the adjusting sleeves. now to order a pitman arm as well i think the hole is worn.

guess that would have caused my sloppy steering

also getting a steering stabilizer kit for next to nothing from a guy at work. he bought it 15yrs ago for his ranger and it didnt fit so its been on his shelf.
