    aidenhardcore needs our help installing his lift.
    This will be happening next saturday 3/10/12 not sure on what time as of right now . Ill be having it at my house in stoughton Ma .
    I live in a townhouse and have a small 1 car garage so it will be pretty much just working on his lift but if any of you guys have little things to do to your trucks feel free to use my tools . aidenhardcore is buying some beers,burger and dogs . i have a grill so bring food etc etc .

    If anyone has a set of jack stands and a floor jack bring them .
    I have both but if we can get 2 guys on the front and 2 guys on the rear it should move along pretty quick and the next person can bring there rig in .
    im not going to post my address on here but post up if you can make it and ill pm you my address.

    LETS pull together and help this guy out!


    Edit - 9am 3/10/12 if I didn't sent my address just pm me . I'll also include my phone # Incase you get lost .

    If I'm around, I'll shoot down and help out. I won't know if I'm free until this weekend though.

    What kind of lift is it?

    AJ, if you're talking about the fog light anytime mod, I need to do that also so next weekend might be a good day for it!

    It's because you're supposed to have your headlights on when you run your fog lights. I want the mod so they'll stay on when I turn my high beams on.

    If you're looking for bull bar lights, I've got a set of PIAA 540 fogs looking for a new home... :spy:

    Yea fog light mod is very simple to do. I have everything right in my truck so you guys don't need to bring anything to.do it. Takes like two minutes. Pugga I've talked to you before about other wiring jobs and i didn't get a chance to check out your truck at the meet and greet. Hope you can make it. Anybody put in an alt fuse box?

    I used to have a cheap set on a bull bar before, I think they were called Navigator lights? I ran a bead of silicone around the perimeter before using them and, for what they were, turned out to be pretty decent. They lasted 3 years on my last truck before they finally crapped out. The pattern wasn't the best, but I never got high beamed with them, they acted as pretty decent fog lights. I can understand, not everyone wants to spend hundreds on their lighting, I think I went a little overboard in that department.
