Oh you said over half off. Must have read that wrong. Well SWEET! The LED for the HALO's. There are too halos at the bottom that get melted. Its common. But you shouldnt have that problem because your Halos arent LED's

You didnt read it wrong bro... I forgot about the 10% off I got because I bought the HID kit too, which dropped the price for me like 28 bucks. Retail the price of my CCFL halos was more than double the price of the ones on ebay for 124.99...

So the CCFL halos arent LED's? Never knew that so Il have to research a bit more about it...!! Thanks for the heads up...!!

Neon FTW. I've always wanted to do under glow for some reason and wheel well lights. I have this thing for lights. I love them. I still really want to do roof lights too. Need to find a very low budget to way to do that.

Uh oh here we go hahahaha. Did u check to see if it threw any codes?

Im not exactly sure yet... From what I have read it is an emissions thing... Could be the gas cap or it could be the whole evaporation system underneath... I tried tightening the gas cap last night but the light is still coming on... This is actually quite hilarious because I just got an emissions test notice on Thursday so Im going to have to get that fixed here soon... I swear! With how things have been going, by the time Im finished everything in my truck is going to be new!!! Trying to get my mechanic on the line right now but until them I think a little wake in bake is in order... LOL

I love the acronym. That is funny how those things line up like that.

I dropped my Dub off last night at my mechanics house last night to get a bunch of work done on it. I think I made a previous post with what all was getting done to it.... needless to say he is charging me 600 and the dealer was going to charge me 1400-1600. So that is a really really nice savings.

Nice!!! I will never go to the stealership unless I have no other choice from here on out... A they are always more expensive and B I swear the one in Chicago jacked my **** up last summer. Brought it in with one minor problem and 2 days later I had like 10 things wrong How long is he going to have it? BTW, how do you like those LED's for your interior lights? Easy to install? Im sure they are bright... But are they too bright? Just curious because I was thinking about throwing some in my truck... Sooo my mechanic just called and Im going to head in to the shop and have him take a look at a few things. Here is the checklist...

1:Brakes have been squealing a bit since I got them changed so Im going to have him check that
2:Install my JET Accu-Speed Chip... Hopefully that will give me my gas mileage back since getting my lift and tires done...
3:Oil Change
4:Have him check the Evap system
5:Im also going to have him check out my HID install just to make sure I did everything right and wont have any issues down the road...
6:See if we can fix the last bit of tire rub behind my front bumper(tires are rubbing a bit on the back of the factory fogs...)

LED's are easy to install. bright, but not to bright. Look awesome when you click to unlock it at night. I do not think that they are too bright to me. It was 65 bucks for all the bulbs. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

My list for today is:
Front Crank Case Seal
Rear Main Seal
Oil Pan Gasket
Spark Plugs
Throttle Body Cleaning
Oil/Filter Change with Mobile 1 Full Syn 10w-30 High Mileage with Mopar Filter.

89K Miles, I would hope the mounts wouldn't be bad. It is so hard to judge because it is kind of relative per person. haha.

My truck idles really smooth... I cant even tell its on most of the time...

Nice to hear you got all your stuff done. Is your ride running better now? I got most of mine done, heading back today to have him install that accu-speed computer. I also have to take some detailed photos of my factory wheels that are still over there... I think I found a buyer for them!!! Definitely going to look into those LED interiors this week! Check engine light was diagnosed to be just a small hose that needed to be replaced... Ordered a new one from the stealership because it is a specialty part so I have to go pick that up today as well....
