    Yes they are enduro's. and I picked them up at Discount Tire the other day. They never said anything was discontinued. I heard the rumor also. I think they are just not making anymore so they are selling what they have but idk. I got them for super cheap

    2nd gen as in 01-04 it's the model that came out with the redesign. Really the 05+ are the 3rd gens but no one on tw calls them that.

    Depends how you clasify the "Generations". Most people clasify them on their chasis. Being as the "first gen" chasis went unchanged from 1997 to 2004 (for the most part), it has been called "first gen".

    So Here are some updates: Got the light bar done and on. The 5 HIDs are on order so we used the 3 off my bumper for sizing. It will lay down flat and is fully adjustable via heim joints and support rods. THis thing is so strong and built so well that I can grab it and shake the whole truck. Big thanks to BOVAD fab for building it for me. Also through on my sdhq Racing decals to get ready for the race this weekend.
