    Anyone have any ideas or know of a thread that goes through installing factory foglights in a steel bumper?

    I've got an All-Pro bumper and need some ideas on how to mount the factory fogs in it.

    Not sure if this is where this belongs: (Issue for 2nd gen) I recently experienced a headlight issue, everythime I hit a smallbump in the road my headlight reflector would jiggle. Searched the forums for a fix but, I was unable to locate a solution to the problem. It seems the common fix is just replace the assembly. So since I had a broken headlight and the new ones installed, I decided to disssemble the unit and see what the issue was.

    To repair a headlight reflector issue try this: Turn the vertical adjusting screw clockwise until you can't turn it any further, if you listen really closely you might be able to hear it snap back into it's socket.....Readjust your headlight and your done.

    Not sure this is the correct place for this but wanted to share a cheap fix for those 2 open rectangular ends left visible down low when you install a new bumper. I ordered these plugs online for $2.25 apiece. Shipping is high but maybe owners in the same area could make a big order. I just trimmed the 'fins' by about 2/3 on the long sides of the plugs, no trimming on the short sides. rubber mallet and voila.
