the hellas are glass lenses and plastic housings. for the price they arent the cheapest but not the most expensive so if they break no big deal. i got one set at pep boys and one set at wal mart.

thanks for the advice on the lights!
i was wondering if any one has used the HID lights that are sold at checker
While we find your parts, please enter your ZIP Code at CSK Auto
i would like them only in the 4 in but i cant find them on line
if any one has used them or has any input please let me know

and as far as the tire gate goes i think i can get by with selling them at a base price of $150

and thanks again for all the input and advice

-Andy

fair enough reason, the actual tiregate has mounts that go across it, but wouldn't a big enough tire get in the way of it?

can you explain in more detail how to have a switch to turn on and off the ABS? I know how to deactivate it, but a switch would be sweet!

basically what i did is cut the light blue wire with the pink tracer that plugs in to the #14 fuse in the fuse box in the dash
i cut it about 2in from the box it self
then i got extra wire and ran the harness to the switch
and then from the switch to the fuse box
pritty basic
just had to think about it a little

hey guys im in a big predicament here

last night i was tinkering around on my light bar and i noticed that my truck was leaning
and it looks like my leafs are messed up

so i guess my question is would my 95 xlt splash leafs and shackles fit on my 98?

Thanks for the help
