Headlights to Bright

Man I never thought I would have an issue with my lights being to bright but man I have got people flipping me off in the mirror jamming on their brakes getting behind me and putting their high beams on it pisses me off all I am doing is driving down the road with my lights on and they get all pissed off as though I have my high beams on . I am gonna look into tinted light covers I hate the way they look but I have had enough I am gonna end up smashing into somebody one of these times when they jam on their brakes !!! anybody else experience this problem

you might just have to re-aim them...
have you done a lift or had the TSB done recently, they might be off from that

freaky! I was just about to say the same thing. I'd get the suspension TSB done first and then readjust your lights.

people flash at me too. I get behind them, they slow down so I pass. Then they turn their damn brights on. I have a lift on my truck, but they were doing that stock too!

I own a regular cab and I dont think the tsb covers my truck although I think it should as I am not at all happy with the way the truck sits especially with the cap on it the rear is lower than the front when I put just a little weight in the back and its common for me to feel it hitting the bump stops when I am on the beach

I get the same thing it drives me crazy. I have a stock '08 Access cab, with the rear spring TSB, that should have pointed my headlights farther down, not up...

It is annoying huh I am not exactly the most relaxxed driver anyway so when people start f ..... g with me I get kinda pissed quick it has not been pretty a few times like tonight on the way home from philadelphia this lady in some fancy bmw wont get out of the left lane when she finally does she decides after I pass to get back behind me and put her high beams on .This had to be the third time in like a 20 mile stretch with people high beaming me well lets just say I "tapped " my brakes lol she got the hint we were down to oh I would say 25 mph really fast from the usual freeway speed of well you no LOL unfortunately for her she happen to do that to me after a few others and I took it out on her oh well she will think twice before she does it again !

Happens to me every time I leave my house and go down the hill to work! I looked at the diagram on adjusting the lights....looks like a pain in the ass. I need to find a big garage where I can put some tape up and adjust them.
