I'll try to remember that for future use. I may not need the faucet hose. After I couldn't find one anywhere that is just a few inches longer, I popped the rubber washers off, cleaned them up really good, and added a bunch of plumbers tape to it. Got up this morning and it was dry. Fixed for now.

I do need two toilet fill assembly sets. Where is the cheapest place to get those?

Random memory: Way back in the day, I kept seeing guys in suits hanging around before we deployed. When I asked, I was told they were plumbers. Figured out later they were CIA.

Fill valves can be had cheap at any hardware store, however if the toilet you are working on has the 1PC angle stop/supply line make sure to replace that too. They become brittle over time due to our water here in Vegas. If you don't know how to replace it let me know. I live by Pollock and Windmill.

I've changed them out a few times. I need to head over to Lowes again anyway.

Didn't know you were that close. I'm near Bermuda and Pyle.

Just ordered my lift kit and some other good stuff! BTW if you ever buy anything from Rough Country, call in your order and tell them you are a JF member, you get an extra 10% off the order. Super nice guys to work with.

They were fireworks. And no, there isn't a MLK anywhere nearby, but I live on the edge of the desert, and some of my neighbors are interesting. If this were the 1870's my neighborhood would resemble a Clint Eastwood western more than anything from a Jane Austin novel.

What kind of lift did you go with?

I was thinking of looking into a very modest 1" lift only because I get a tiny bit of tire rubbing. I also just got new shocks and want to be able to use them.

I guess MLK's are only in old cities and Henderson is relatively new. Happy Black History Month by the way.

That Clint Eastwood commercial is proving to be controversial. Speculation is that Chrysler is returning the favor to Obama for the bailouts. I saw it as completely opposite. I didn't find it very flattering of Obama at all.

No first hand experience with those persay but KC is one of the leaders in aftermarket lighting and LED lights are pretty badass these days so IMO if they're what you want, I personally wouldn't hesitate to gamble on them. I really doubt they'll let you down in brightness and function or quality.

What size tires you planning to run out of curiosity? I've got a 3" or 4" (not really sure which) on mine and am on 35" tires. I can't decide if I want to stay on 35's though or bump back down to 33's. I have a 1" body lift in the garage to put on it someday if I decide to stick with the 35's but I'm sorta in decisive...

I've used LED lights for speciality lighting around the house for parties, I wondered about usage of the bulbs, ability to handle weather, road vibration, etc. I'm sure the brightness vs energy draw is a great advantage over traditional bulbs.....just a bit worried that there are no reviews yet, I know the technology is relatively new for consumer use though.
