Finally got some pictures of the tails. and also of how bright my hellas are.
The tints REALLY nice especially considering I painted the rear bumper black too.

oh hell of course I'm excited! haha. I'm going with Black Diamond. I plan on putting in the kit next saturday....but with the way 4wheelerssupply is going, I ordered them last week i think wed night, and as of last night, they still haven't been shipped out yet. Which means, if I dont get them in by next sat, lift isn't going on until June 13th instead of the 6th not a MAJOR problem because I still haven't ordered my tires yet.
all good though, I'm still happy I got the kit today. and my rims should be coming in tomorrow

and what do you think of the tails sean? nice right?
