    It's about time I contributed something useful! I owe this forum--it is one of the reasons I bought my truck. I thought, "if these guys/gals care this much for their truck, they must be good!" And they are. Anyway, the pages don't exactly match up in the manual, but with a little quick math, anyone should be able to use the table of contents to find what they need (if anyone besides me ever uses those anymore). Search works, so that should take care of the majority.

    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.

    I know your rifle wont fit in this but if your pack'n a pistol you need to check out this link. There is a thread about this here in TW, but I think this is the lowest price I've seen. Definitely worth the money.:quickdraw:
