    I just mounted some S2's for my rear facing lights. I'll probably repurpose my Cali Raised pods to ditch duty but would rather put them off my rack than hood.
    Baja Designs are the shit though.......

    Get the Rago ones.
    They have an adjustable bolt hole. So you can adjust the lights in or out on your hood.

    I have the BD S2 pros.
    If you’re going to go with them. Get them both in flood.

    Personally if I were to do it over I’d probably get a set of Rigid lights.

    I like them because they have LED’s on the “sides” as well. So you almost get a full 180° pattern

    Yeah, my Cali-Raised rear facing lights are sideshooters as well. Nice to have that which is probably while I'll relocate mine.

    Are there any plans anytime soon for a work day get together? I have (shipping next week) a Bruteforce Fab HC rear bumper I need to install. Also if anyone is super savvy on wiring (Im electrically handicapped) I have a bunch of wiring and alarm install Im looking to work on. I can pay in beer, cash or turning wrenches on non electrical parts. Thanks!

    finally got my upper radiator hose leak fixed so assuming the work i did holds i am good to go out of town again without having coolant leak worries
    i am headed to north KC Tuesday to JayWolfe to get the decent oil change coupon that is much less than here in Bellevue/Omaha area
    and I am also going to see what they have to say about a proper and thorough frame inspection
    the local dealers here I have asked are either clueless, ignorant or just don't give a rats shit about my old tacoma anymore
    that is probably why i see very few of the old '90s Taco's around town anymore, not sure where they are hiding
    perhaps the KC area has a larger population of the pre-2K models and know what to deal with, i shall see

    i am more concerned about what is going on in the insides and what to properly do about it that is the most effective course of preventative action
    i visited a local salvage yard here recently and got plenty of pics on a truck a month older than mine of how far one can get on a bad frame :(
    this had 239k miles on it

    I’ve been running Rago fab brackets for about a year now and they still look new. They sit more outboard than some others I’ve seen which give you a lot of room for adjustment so you get light exactly where you want. @Cav_BluTRD switched to these and it took care of his hood glare problem.

    I’m running rigid dually SS (the ones Cav linked). 120 degree beam and plenty of lumens. Zero issues with water, fogging, etc that you’ll get with cheaper pods.

    chunks is a pleasant way of putting it i suppose!

    somebody with the last name of Rivera/Torres was driving it when i guess it just fell apart (current insurance card was found on the seat still) and no noticeable collisions or impact anywhere from an accident
    the original or 2nd owner (3 of them per autocheck) probably had no clue about the frame issues either that started last decade :notsure:

    Anyone in the metro have a bigger shop press? I'm fixing up an old bronco and my 12 ton wont press on the bearing retainers for the rear axles. I had one lined up but hes been to hard to meet up with.

    Alright guys.....I got roped into the fantasy football league at work again this year.
    I forgot the draft so it autodrafted.......usually the guys I pick tear their scrotum or some shit anyway.

    Need a new good name and running a little dry right now.....

    Last years is still currently in

    "Heinous Anus' Crotch Lobsters"

    Let's hear some ideas.....obviously PC doesn't really apply here.

    I may see if I can borrow 10 minutes on it. I don’t know what it will take to press these, but 12 ton was fine on bearings but won’t budge the retainers, even after heating.
