Um no they won't, I've had those exact lights on our dakota for 2 years now. As long as you keep them clean they'll be fine.

You can just run the crank pulley. Unless you have a big system or something that takes a lot of juice you'll be fine.

Well I know is been a LONG A$$ time since I made this but I have everything in. I lost my job because im a dumby and had to wait a week till I got a new one to spend the money. I ended up finding some firestone destinations on some Mickey tompson classic II's for real cheap. Ordered all my stuff from Stuffforyourranger.com and I gotta say the shipping was Terrible. Late as heck and when I got it everything it looks like he just put his sunday paper threw a shredder. Makes a HUGE mess. Needless to say very disappointed and will not order from him again nor recommend him

Its not really a complain as more of a disagreement. The product is great but it was packaged and shipped badly. Just my opinion

I havent touched this thread for a while but heres a update


I put the body lift on and found these 17" helo rims and 33" mtzs at a local shop for a steal. The only problem now is with my 3.0 and 3.73's is slow as can be and cant make it on the interstate. Im planning on swaping my 7.5 for a 8.8 with 4.10's but my only question is the front. Do I have to swap in a complete front axel or can I just do the differentials? Im looking into swaping for a fleetside bed and painting it a satin black come spring. Im also looking into adding some black projector headlights and a black grille

Some old pics Iv put up before but not in here. Ill get more when I drive to work in the blizzard. Im also planning on cutting off the exhaust tips since they hang so long, and Iv really become a fan of the clean tipless look.

I like those rims a lot. You can just swap the front differential, you don't need the whole axle assembly.
