Yea eventually. I'll probably just put one pair on but Im not sure if Im going to get driving lights or more long ranges. Im sort of leaning towards driving because my headlights suck really bad. Im also thinking about throwing in a pair of 80/100W bulbs and see if that fixes it and if it does then I'll get long range lights. Im tired of struggling to see with my brights on all the time

lol i know the feeling. getting new housings off of ebay with silverstar ultras helped but i still run my bumper lights on all the time at night. i need to relocate my stock fogs as well since the arb hides them

The 5.9 got some goodies from santa. It got a new front and rear sway bar, IROs belly skid, and IROs OTK steering. Dropped it off at the shop this morning and I'll have it back in a few days. I can't wait to see how much better its going to drive when I get it back.

Picked it up this morning from the shop. I am very pleased with it. The sway bars and OTK steering definately improved how it drove. No more body roll and no more wandering on the highway which means no more white knuckle driving

I am still trying to decide on what to get next. I'm thinking the tune up kit from Kolak and probably a new head unit that has USB and MP3 ports. I need to buy another rim for my spare too. Ah the list never ends

I haven't heard that before but I think it is going to hit things up front when it moves because of the increased thickness.

Went on a buying spree the last couple days. I installed a new head unit with a USB line, got the tune up kit for the 5.9, a new speedo gear, another rim for my spare, hi lift jack w/base, some hi lift accessories, couple D rings, and a 30' recovery strap. Lots of boxes coming in the next couple weeks
