I opened the housing and painted them...couldn't find any aftermarket headlights I liked. Went with rc spacers and the longer mll's in the rear. Also, running rc wheel spacers and 265/70/17 general grabber at2s.

Nice! And a good choice of tire haha, you will most likely see minor rubbing up front but nothing the pinch weld mod cant fix. I just installed the longer MLL's the other day but i gotta swap them out for a new set cause one of them is knocking when i go over a bump. They ride alot better though especially in going around corners!

Oh I gotcha, do you have any references as to who would have the best looking after market headlights? And how much were your at2s?

Definitely can't complain about how it rides after installing the lift, a lot better than I expected! Occasionally on eBay they'll have regular black housing headlights for a reasonable price. After shopping around I got the at2s for 161 a tire out the door!

That's a great deal on those tires! Would you recommend running those tires or the Kelly tsr's? What size lift so you have on yours?

2in spacer lift with the longer mll's in the rear. Don't know much about Kelly tsr's. Besides being rated good, I've had several buddies who ran the at2s and loved em.
