    So the day before thanksgiving i was backing up at my ex's house (pissed off thats why shes my ex lol) and i backed into her dumpster needless to say i was thrilled not only did i lose my girlfriend of 2 years but i screwed up my truck (i was more upset about my truck though) long story short where can i get a cheap stock replacement tail light online? i've looked and the best i can find is 50 plus shipping and the local junk yard want 65 for used is there anywhere that has them cheaper? i don't really want to spend a bunch at the moment although i will be saving a ton of money by not being in a relationship during Christmas lol Also does anyone know where i can get new inner axles and lift springs for reasonable?
    Thanks in advanced -Matt

    You will find lights on e-bay - either used OEM or new aftermarket. Aftermarket is usually cheaper, but might not be the same quality as OEM. I have found that my headlights are acceptable quality for the price. New aftermarket is always available, while OEM will be hit or miss. Sorry to hear about the bad luck, (congratulations on being your own boss again:cool: )
