    Yeah I've got them located on the outside of the inner headlight support. Here's the passenger side one.

    Well the UCA deboggle is over. Took me a month to get everything worked out. The original set they sent me was really bad and the replacement was even worse. I couldn't believe it.. I have no idea how they're in business.. (I really want to blast the awful companies name here but decided not to. But of you really want to know, you can figure out who they are in my older posts. They are a umbrella company of :poking:.)

    Check this crap out

    I guess that's what I get for not following my strick policy of "buy once cry once". :facepalm:

    I ended up going local and chose SD Dirt Kings. Which is what I should of done in the first place. They mirror what a successful business should be. Tyler over there helped me get what I needed quickly and I highly recommend checking them out if you haven't yet. Super stoked to finally finish what I started over a month ago...

    The 3rd gen back glass will fit also. But the attachment is about 1/4” smaller all the way around. So you'd have to clean around the opening good before installing it.
    I plan on installing the power slider from the 17-up someday

    Ah damn I was hoping it was a fluke but guess they just reinforced the reason why their UCAs are $300. Glad you had a positive attitude and found someone else that gave you something worth your hard earned dollars

    Thank you. It took everything inside me not to rip them a new one throughout the 37 emails and 15 phone calls. After everything was said and done I was kicking myself for not going local. Some of the best shops are here in SD lol. My recently stressfull life clouded my judgement man :D

    Upgraded Sumosprings blue (SSR-610-40) to black (SSR-610-47) for camping, towing, etc. no pics—nothing to see here, move on. The drivers side does touch because I added a 1/2” spacer many moons ago for Taco lean. Also added, long time ago, Toytec AAL after adding ARE camper shell. No noticeable difference, in ride, when truck is empty and not towing camper. Will find out later on next camping trip as I’ve added tongue weight to my camper.

    Just a thought.....I saved $36 by buying from Autoanything (Sale) over Amazon.
