Took me a good 6 months of ebaying, junkyarding, asking if people have them, etc...

some take years to find....others days(as in the case with RedneckStone).... Just gotta look and keep looking. I started a 'wanted' thread in classifieds section of the site and somebody offered me theirs.

DONE!

If i had to do it again, i would have just built the hitch. Honestly...i wish i could start over. the hole would be perfectly in the middle of the hole. BUT...it's functional and no cutting of the valence is needed even though the pics look like it'll need to be done, it doesn't.

NOW....just gotta wait on this nationwide backorder on my shackle inserts!

it's the ****. i mean really...it is. it's an enamel, virtually indiscructable since it's an industrial spray. it's only $6 a can. and the color is perfect. if sprayed on a few coats, it takes alot of wirewheeling to remove. ask grant...my hitch had 3 coats on it...and was hard to get to bare metal.

Believe me...if someone made orange hid bulbs...i'd be all about it. But...i'm gonna have to settle for yellow and grab-her orange everywhere else...heads, corners, 5 lil ones on the visor, and turnsignals in the mirrors.
