Yep just PM him and tell him which clips you broke. I think there are round and square ones.

Also my 34" LED lightbar should be here by Friday. So that will be my project this weekend as well as a new belt, so I don't have to listen to this stupid belt squeal anymore.
Did the same last week. Was easy just gotta remember to remove the bottom right bolt.

Glad I randomly seen this post. Ive been keeping mine in with Duct tape generously applied by the P.O.

Quick question * Do new headlight units come with them?

Are you asking if new headlights come with the clips? If you are then no.

Used the Plasma Cutter to cut off the rear upper control arm pockets, painted the bare metal, and installed the upper rear 39" long control arms!

Once again attempted to get my passenger side motor mount lined up. When I tried to remove it I was unable to get the through bolt all the way out, despite all manner of jacking locations and heights. I gave up, tightened everything else back down and then found out I can't get the damn thing all the way back in. When I tried to put the through bolt back into place it simply refuses to line up. So I can't relieve enough tension on it to completely remove it, or get it lined up enough to completely re-install it. It's just hanging there 80% of the way in, unable to come out the other end because it's not lined up with the mounting bracket. Frustrating as all hell and I really don't want/can't afford to call a mobile mechanic to handle what should be a relatively easy job. Anyone know any tips/tricks that might be of use? Where and how high did you support the engine to allow the through bolt to simply slide in/out of place? If I could just figure out how to achieve that I'd be golden.

i just used the bottle jack with 2 piece's of wood and a tire iron to turn raise and lower it while jiggling the bolt

you may need to raise and lower the engine at the t case a few times to get the bolt out

You got new adjustment clips with the lights? Mine from Amazon didn't come with those. Not the one that goes on the rod anyway.
