Ya i sold the headlight covers, and the discos are up to 6" lift. So what you gotta do is just tilt the front sway down and you'll be fine.

Cool, I have been thinking about getting one but just don't know if I want to fork up the cash for that or do something else. I thought they made adapters that you could use your steering wheel controls.
