    Got my BHLM done today and they survived the first wash without getting any moisture in them.

    notice the missing rear slider...

    [​IMG]

    and now notice the new "window"

    story behind this, girlfriend drove me and some friends to a party in my truck and was not drinking. When we were leaving she realized that the keys were locked in the truck.
    So instead of calling a locksmith, in our drunken state of mind we tried to slide the rear slider open to crawl in. Using a knife we got through the seal and almost unlatched it and then it shattered everywhere...

    So now the whole rear window has to be replaced for around $900 :facepalm:

    Should still be able to purchase my lift in the next couple weeks though
