I do not have the fog lights yet but am working on getting the time to pick some up. it looks like there are some factory wires already in place for them. I just need to cut the holes out of the bumper.

Put 4.10 gears in. Find an axle with 10" brakes, even better. You WANT limited slip, too.

You won't regret it.

i acctually did some measuremnts and they are 10 inch, but i dont know whether i want a 4.10 because of the decrease in gas mileage that may occur. How does yours do?(on mileage)
