    Buy the 3M Headlight restoration kit. The one that uses the sanding pads and a drill..

    http://www.amazon.com/3M-39008-Headlight-Restoration-System/dp/B001AIZ5HY

    I use them all the time. It will fix that issue in a hurry.

    Do not forget to tape off the WHOLE AREA> get an additional roll of the painters tape. Go nuts, tape everything and leave the hood open when you use the drill. Tape 6-8 inches around and do a couple layers. Thank me later on the tape tip.

    Yes sir! Feels good in the hand. Just took a drill press and drilled a hole big enough for the nut that I found in the garage to fit. Stuck it in there and it was tight enough for me just kinda tap it in there and it stayed!

    Hey, with your lift, did you use your stock SR5 coils with the bilsteins set at 1.75"? How many miles did you have on them at that point?

    Crap! Sorry man. Just saw your post.
    My advice is read on this website a lot, then make an informed choice. I changed my mind several times before I finally pulled the trigger on my lift, wheels, & tires, & now I'm very happy. Especially since I did the install myself.

    Changed out the oil & filter, cabin filter, rotated the tires & had them road force balanced (much smoother ride), & trimmed out the front wheel wells to eliminate rubs from my new tires. This makes me happy!

    Nice! I took my cabin air filter that I changed this past June out the other day and it was pretty dirty/dusty. Surprised me, I may make that reusable/washable one on here soon

    Oh well then yes, much yuck. There were leaves in mine also, I'm putting mesh over the intake in the cowl asap, so annoying when leaves fly out of my defroster

    I really like this look. Thanks to spieler for his handiwork with the decal. Now I need to derp the badging and bumper to match.

    Put in the center console organizer - wow, HUGE difference.
    Got some help from my kids with building a deck.
