    Removed 4 lights and Lighrack
    This last thrusday I went out to my truck to go to the store to buy my girlfriend flowers... I went in got the flowers and came back out and noticed that there was something loose hanging from my truck. I go around to the back and someone took the liberty to rip all 4 of my rear hid ballasts off the truck... So at this point I'm like WTF!? :goingcrazy: welll those are now offically gone, police gave up so the rack is for sale and I'm instaling a Truck Covers USA Tonneau. ​

    Pre Theft Picture....
    [​IMG]

    _________________________________________________________________

    After the ballasts where stolen I rocked just the front light bar for a little while and also added some other mods:

    • Day Time running lights

    [​IMG]

    Next I started a small hydrographics business:

    [​IMG]
    I didn't install these if any one wants to shoot me an offer for these ;)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I then got tired of the bull bar and upgraded to an N-Fab street bar and replaced my ballasts that where stolen so I could run all 6 lights:

    [​IMG]

    This lasted about a month before someone backed into me and smashed the lower lights :mad: So now I'm running just 4 Hella 500's. I also picked up a set of 4300k hid's for the headlights. This was after the last ice storm:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Well that same week some one hit me outside of my dorm, didn't leave a note again either, and I had to pick up a new tail set then:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Next came the retrofit bug... I sold all the hella's when my 700FF's (55W HID) finaly came after being back ordered for months, and I got my self a stage III FXR kit from the Retrofit Source. A friend of mine who is a vendor for retro's on a cobalt forum hooked me up:

    looks good

    that bull bar looks like you loose a lot of clearance at the front though if you offroad at all?

    Very nice! I am not usually a fan of the bull bars but it looks good on your truck. :thumbsup: . Why did you go with the 500ff not the 700ff?

    Alex, I just ordered the Ultra Drifters for my '05 Silverstreak TRD Sport 4DLB Tacoma to go with my new lift (Toytec Ultimate w/ Billie 5100 Coilovers, UCA's, AAL's in the back).

    Did you have any clearance problems with the Ultra Drifters? What size tire are you running? What lift do you have?

    Thanks for your input!
