You are going to have a hard time fitting Day Liters on the bumper. Go for slimlites instead. Otherwise nice list you got going.

it is well worth it my friend and is probably cheaper than the 4" lift you were looking at. i have this same lift on my 92 and it is sweet.

Wow... first few things... if your going to do it, do it right.. Go 6" cause the 4" isnít really that big... go 33x12.5x15 not 10.5 if you want to still have handling. Rule of thumb when you go UP go OUT with the tires...

Next you CAN fit daylighters on the bumper unlike what "91redranger" said obviously he has never owned a set of daylighers before. The mounting stud is all the way in the back of the light.

Now on a personal preference I think daylighters look goofy on the front but they will still fit...

Next those mirrors are REPRODUCTION JAP mirrors of Ford Factory mirrors i had to buy one after one of my Ford one's got hit.. They SUCK ***.. The adjustability of them is about 1/2 what real ford one's are, and in a few months the mirrors get lose and vibrate like mad.. In other words find REAL Ford mirrors...

I said he would have a hard time because I did. They look goofy and dont have much adjustability. I have the Hella 500s.
