    I am still trying to learn a lot about trucks I had an old 87 rebuilt the whole truck. I am having problems with knowing what some of the after market parts are and what they do. A few of them are:

    HID's
    TC UCA's
    blacked out headlights ( i know they are for looks but I am tying to get a set with HID's)
    and what brand to look for?

    I will post more as I see them if you can let me know what the difference from stock and the benefits of having these parts that would be great. :confused:

    HIDs are just very bright and efficient lights. The real benefit is having a much greater light output than stock bulbs

    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    TC UCA's are aftermarket upper control arms that aid in alignment after a lift is installed.

    They replace the stock UCA. If your having troubles getting/keeping the front end aligned, TC UCA's would be a good idea to fix that. However they run around 600 bucks.

    I have a lift, but do not have the TC UCA's. Haven't had a problem with alignment...yet...
