    You might find that the word "complete" in any sentence referring to your truck doesnt really mean complete :D

    LCA skids, bumps, spanner. ICON doesn't screw around--I went to open the skid box and there was 9 of those giant staples closing the box then the parts were TIGHTLY packed in protective styrofoam. If you're shopping for LCA skids check out the beef on these, I bet the rocks cry uncle before these things land on them:

    I was debating getting that one--kind of pricey and I think the All Pro cover would suffice but it is a sweet piece

    Those things are beefy. So you are going to be running secondary shocks, i was wondering how they mount to the LCA, looks like they mount to the lca skid, thats a really cool design. Damn your truck is going to be badass

    The S3 is suposed to be awesome, IMO the note is way to big. I say go with an Iphone, especially if it is your first smart phone, they are alot more user friendly. Although i haven't had an android for almost 2 years now so i am sure they have improved. Queue android vs. iphone debate :rolleyes:

    First wiring question of the day, and there will probably be more. My light is 234 watts so i think that means it draws 19.5 amps. I am planning on getting a 20 amp inline fuse (maybe a fuse block depending on what they have and price) and 14 gauge wire. Because it is so close to 20 amps should i go with a 25 amp fuse and 12 gauge wire just to be safe?
