I agree that it looks good.
Ripping off your gas door while wheelin? What the hell are you doing that rips doors off? and if you are, this mod will now ensure your fender will get ripped off.

Then account for mud, thats not something I want to deal with when fueling.

I scored a set a few weeks ago for $24. I plan on buying a universal 15watt HID kit.

98Silver...did you use any kind of sealant to keep crud out?
I was thinking of using some weather seal.

I aligned them and then put black caulk on them to hold them in. But I'm going to switch them out for driving lights that are brighter.

The teeth look funny. Not that they look bad, it just made me chuckle.
