    I know what you mean! It can be addictive lol. I tried to get a shot of the lights against the tree line but my crappy cellphone could not get a good pic. I have a good spread and will try to get one before work in the am against the back wall at work

    Put some plywood on the floor of my bed boxes. Figured it would help reduce wear and tear from all the other metal stuff sliding around in there and deafen some of the noise. Also, turns out my exhaust studs that bolt the section of exhaust before the cat up to the headers had come loose. Now I finally know where all the racket was coming from when I would get into the throttle. Tightened those up and its a much quieter ride.

    Got back from a boarding trip to Wolf Creek to find my off road lights on my bed. I tried to install them behind my Satoshi and ended up cracking my Satoshi to find out that the lights don't fit behind the grill because of how close the radiator is and also some little pipe things... :annoyed: so i guess I have to mount them to the bumper

    a sheet metal bender that was out at the college, it didnt give exact angles so it was a trial and error till i got it right.

    its pretty thin metal and has quite afew dents but has held up much better than i predicted, even hit it on acouple things just to test it[​IMG] im not sure on the exact angles and it will change for everyone, i didnt have the factory mounts because i bent those, so i just mounted a piece of angle iron to the factory spot and drilled holes for the bolts

    Do you have any output pics? I have the same housings and was wanting to pick up some hids and then retro it later (since I can't really afford to do it together). 35w 5000k or 6000k?

    Installed a K&N fipk intake Friday night. Im happy with it. I can feel a difference and I like how my plugs and coil packs are little more accessible.

    We should meet up. I'm hopefully putting on a new suspension this spring or so, so maybe I could keep up on the trails with you. :)
