    Heck yeah!! I have been happy with how my milestars have performed on wet rock. Bad ass though man.

    Looks like you have an RCI skid as well? Poor things aren’t made for this lol

    lol yea im in the process of building a new front skid just been lazy lol. Im about 60% done with it. I started it like 2 months ago and it got put off lol. Ill probably finish this weekend. I reached out to RCI to see if they would do anything since all their welds failed but i smaked the shit out of it. Like i thought i cracked the oil pan it was so bad lol.

    Yeah I reached out to them about the rear skids as I mangled those up bad but just ended up making my own. That’s funny I’m in the long process of making my front. I’ll be chopping the front up higher as well.

    Got shamed separately by 2 people (best friend and father in law) about my hazing headlights:angrygirl::boink:
    I guess I need to re-prioritize some projects. I've used the mothers kit, and it worked great but of course once you remove the protective surface, the hazing becomes routine. Moved onto mag polish every couple months, but I may be beyond that at this point. Did the ultimate headlight mod a couple years back but never changed the housings. OEM TRD pro's are $200 each.....not syked.

    I suggest trying partsgeek.com. I bought clear replacements for the 2012 that perfectly match the oem for around $120 each. After 13 months they still look new. I also bought a pair of black bezel Sports for my 2008 for only $146. I have been very happy with them. These were the BROCK brand and I have bought this brand for several vehicles over the years. Very good quality. One thing I always do is add a bead of clear sealer around the seam of every headlight I replace just as a precaution. My 2008 factory stock headlights were nice and clear but one developed a small leak that left a water line inside the headlight.

    Try the Cerakote kit. I did mine back in April and they still look good.

    Dude, those are projector lenses that are an entirely different animal than a halogen reflector.

    I don't care who you are, you can't "adjust" LED scatter from a reflector. I'd love to see some pics of y'alls "cut off".

    Lots of folks buying new housings lately. Spend the couple extra bucks and get a ceramic coating kit. Makes them look like a million $ and protects them from future fading

    I was just showing how well they worked in my 3rd gen halogen headlights. No plans to try in a 2nd gen.

    Diy. There's lots of kits, really easy to do. Now that I've got almost a grand into my headlights and taillights, seemed an easy insurance step to keep them nice
