    If I add a new crush washer, do I need to just drain it all and refill? Since I'm losing Oil I can't just drain it and add the same amount of what came out right?

    If you really wanted you could just drain it out into a clean container and put it back in since it’s pretty new.

    Ive seen them, but not tested them. Difficult to say for certain, but from online comparisons to Morimoto in 3rd Gen form and many online photos the beam pattern looks sub-par, too much foreground light and not enough distance light. The peak intensity in the pattern looks way to low, when it should be right up at the cut off.

    Welp just found out I don’t own a socket big enough for it. Looks like it’s a 21 or 21mm, biggest I own is 19. Gotta go to the hardware store in the morning. For now, I cleaned it and put cardboard under to see how bad it is.

    They look fantastic, just way too expensive. They change the whole look of the truck for the better.

    It’s 24mm. The deep impact socket set from harbor freight has one. Pretty inexpensive set. Good luck!

    Manual trans has no temp sensor. So, no.

    Also much less risk of overheating heavy weight gear lube vs much thinner ATF.

    Don’t forget to get the fill port opened first!

    Finally getting around to doing my 5100/885 AAL set up after it sitting in my garage since Christmas. But I've got new hubs/bearings going on up front as well. Slow moving when its just you and it's Florida in the summer :bananadead:
