    A little late but PLEASE tell me you spent the extra coin and that Firestik has the adjustable end....;)....I recently had antennas go bad on the "Mack office" and tried a plain 3' Firestick....SWR would not come close..paid the extra $$$ for the adjustable one and SWR's came in sweet :D.....Mounting in an area like you want...any help with reflection with an easy adjustment will save you headaches...

    NICE BUILD also....:cool:

    I purchased the tunable tip firestik II. I am glad I did because I have heard the others can be a headache! My decision was based on the fact that I know nothing about tuning them so I went with the easiest choice lol. Thanks!!:)

    I love the way your wheels came out. I think I might try it on mine. I wanted to go with all black, but i got a steal on these wheels and couldn't pass them up. I love how your truck is coming along.

    Hey thanks! I just couldn't decide if I was going to paint them black or leave them original, but now I want to go black for sure. I love the wheels you chose, they look awesome.

    Installed some LED flexible bars under my hood last night so I can see what I am doing working at night! Makes life much easier now. Installed a switch for them today

    the truck looks great! do you still have the one-piece headlights? if so, how are they holding up?

    I'm looking to get some soon and really like the clear/black combo of yours. :cool:

    Thank you! Yeah I still have the lights and I love them. I did have some problems at the beginning with them leaking, but I have since added some silicone around all the seams and no problems since!! :)

    I have to agree, these lights are awesome. I have the same stile just smoked. did you change out your tail lights as well? I haven't had any issues with them leaking yet (knock on wood).

    If i recall, you said you were going to mod them; what were you planning to do? I've thought about Halos
