you took the head light covers off? They didnt look half bad went with the whole blacked out look. Go all out and black out the grill and that piece on the bumper.

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.
