    I say go for it. Would look better with the black trim on your truck. Your trucks looks great btw. When you gonna level/lift it?

    I haven't done it to mine yet but I like the looks of the BHLM. I do think it would look good on yours as well.

    I say go for it. It seems like you're already heading down the road of red/black with the painted wheels, tinted tails, black fender flares and black grille. I think the BHLM will look good.

    It would probably look good on your truck.

    But what a PITA to do.

    I'd just get a set of OEM tinted head lights.

    maybe a slight lift when its paid off, but as for the level, i kinda like the slight rake to it. especially since the rake disappears and looks level sometimes depending where i park.

    as long as you're even remotely confident in your ability to do the bhlm, i'd say def do it, it'd look good on your truck and if you read the how to thread its really not that difficult...I just did mine last week and the most frustrating thing was getting the headlight housing off the truck

    Go for it, it will match up good with ur trim and tail lights, im thinking of doing mine soon, or either buy some from ebay, but dont do the headlight covers, i think those dont look as good, but that just my taste.

    no, the output is still as bright... I still get people flashing their headlights at me at night thinkin my highbeams are on... the only thing i can think of that might get altered is the aim/angle of the light... just make sure to doublecheck it and adjust if needed once you put them back in

    eh yes and no. it was the longest i've ever had a car. sold her with 172K on the clock, bought her with 64K. lots of time and memories in that car. i dont miss her because a lot of things were starting to wear out (like brake lines and suspension bushings and other labor intensive things). i put a lot of time and money into the motor and various other things. sold her, bought another motorcycle sooooo i dont miss it because of that either haha.

    i know what you mean. i bought mine with 72k and when she finally died it was just over 180k. blew through the stock transmission, a rebuild, and finally replaced it with a new one, then started having alot of motor issues that were just too expensive and made no sense (financially) to keep fixing. She was my first though, and boy was she sweet
