    Couldn't remember where I got this idea until I looked back far enough in this thread. Thanks for the inspiration, sir!

    I did something similar on my Scion. I live on a super twisty road with no street lights and I leave for work at 4:45AM. The head lights on this car suck. The high beams converge about 100 feet in front of the car. There is zero light around corners. the head lights are only udjustable up and down, not side to side.
    The lightbar fixed that.

    Matt, that looks awesome and I'll give you tons of credit for pulling the trigger on cutting the head liner!! I'd be nervous as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs cutting into the head liner.
    Again, great job!!

    Thanks brother :thumbsup:

    Believe me... I was sweatin it pretty good when I was cutting. But it was suprisingly easy to cut with a good sharp exacto knife... Like, kind of alarmingly easy lol.

    Sorry, never got a notification that you asked this question.

    The right stick is low / high range
    The left stick is 4x / Neutral / 2x

    It gives me ability to be in 2wd low without spinning my CVs (I'm manual hub). I also think it's easier to shift between low / high range... and I also just think it looks cooler than the Jshifter lol.

    It would take more than a shifter to do that.

    ive heard some people say high range in front and low in back to help turning a locked truck on rock

    also to make a ghetto pto system that uses the front drive shaft...

    disenguage front hubs put the front driveshaft in high or low the truck wont move anywhere but will turn the front driveshaft which could chain drive or be a pto
