    After spending a considerable amount of time on this site the past few weeks, I have learned many things including what to do, what not to do, how to do it and why. Just to share....

    1) 6000K HID's are the ONLY way to go
    2) 6000K HID's suck

    1) ToyTec lifts are the best there is
    2) ToyTec lifts suck

    1) Spacers are the best lift for a cheap price
    2) Spacers will eventually lead to your death riding down the road when they fail

    1) Camper Shells have no use anymore
    2) Camper shells are good to throw rowdy kids in to keep their damn feet off the back of the seat

    All in all, I have learned that people have their own opinion about everything and very FEW are educated, but for those of you that have taken the time to give me some educated advice, THANK YOU!

    Obviously I need to be educated on how to spell LEARNED....

    My husband explains it as "Fan-Boy Mannerism." Basically, we defend our choices because we don't want to be caught being wrong, or to be told that our choicse are wrong.

    I would say, a safe way to express an opinion, is to say "yup, that worked for me" or "nope, that configuration didn't work for me/faulty model/poor design/over promised-under delivered" etc. Because, IMO, if a business was 100% shit, they wouldn't be in business for long, right? It's similar to Relentless owners bashing TAG bumpers. TAG isn't a BAD bumper, but it isn't a high-profile off-road bumper either. And there's a fan-boy mannerism right there, since I'm a fan of TAG and prefer their near-OEM style and low mall-crawler design.
