    Ordered them this past Friday. Got 8000K fogs and Bi-Xenon for the headlights. They will also be experementing with one of my KC Slimlites to see if they can retrofit all four of them with HID's as well. I want to have the look of a comet coming down the interstate when I am through. If they can't retrofit the KC's they will be for sale so I can replace them with HID offroad lights. Anybody think they might be interested???

    I might be down, BUT you know it comes with the light bar. :D LOL. Take a picture of your HID lights on when you install them. That should be a sweet set-up.

    oh dont worry, putting PNP HID kits into your headlight and foglights will create so much glare that you WILL look like a comet coming down the road!!

    let me know if you need a hand with the install. I have the 5100's installed and love the ride. I also put a 1 inch block in the back. Had Revo's but my truck hated them so I went with a smooth riding highway tire non 4x4 here.

    you know I am not sure about the extra weight of an arb bumper you could go with the 5100's and some OME springs to get the desired ride height. The thing with the OME springs is that you can't preload them so you need to set them at the lowest setting and be done with it.

    mine are set at the top notch. 2.5 inches on stock springs. I was never able to get the TSB done because I was over my mileage and I already put the 5100's on.

    I got a brushguard just like Ben's sitting in my garage if interested. Wow, Mobile is starting to look alive. 3 people now. I'm down for the shoot. Got my new camera and all. Lets just try to find a cool place.

    I am interested in a set of your lights. The reason I asked Benca where he got his brushguard from it because I had one and I sold it to a guy with a white dbl cab tacoma from mobile, thought he was the same person.

    Benca- for gaines would be cool you might not be lifted but I am riding on hwy tires due to a sheky steering wheel so it all works out in the end.

    I am down for whenever you all wanna get together.

    HAHAHA, thats funny dude. Didn't that guy trade you his bull bar for it. If I remember right, you even put it on for me, or I mean him. Small world huh. Glad to see you made it over from Customtacos. This place is much nicer. Thought you were getting transferred from Mobile?

    benca-

    Thats awesome. I would really like to get the TSB done if we can work it out. The vibe was really bad with my revos it shook all over the place around 62 mph and shook like hell when I hit the brakes. I got the tires at Firestone on Schillinger did the 30 buy and drive and on day 29 switched them out for the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza. Not exactly an agressive tire but they ride nice. I was told the vibration was due to the fact that my truck is 4x4 it is to light in the front. Whatever it is nice not to vibrate down the road when I go somewhere. Other than that never had an issue.

    They use an H3 but there is some question weather or not there will be enough clearance in the housing for a H3 HID bulb. Any ideas on HID offroad lights. Which ones are good?

    Traded the white one in for a red one. I guess I liked the color of this one better. Oh, and 0% for 36 months was good also. Where about in Pascagoula are ya?

    I was going to get the Nitto's and wanted those so bad but the issue I was having kind of backed me into a corner. If I bought tires on the internet and had an issue who backs them? I was backed into a corner at least I know if I have any issue Firestone has my back at least for the next 30 days. My truck has almost 98,000 miles on it. Is that going to be an issue for the TSB? Who is Norman and what do I tell him? I live here in West Mobile I jsut commute everyday to P-goula.
