So here is a question, If I were to get me a set of these http://www.roundeyes.com/Toyota_Headlamps-Rectangular_Toyota_Conversion_Headlamps.html

Would I/ Should I get 1 of these?....  http://www.4crawler.com/4x4/CheapTricks/Headlights.shtml#OnLineOrdering



If the factory wiring looks bad I would.




Looks nice!   Where are you going to install the keyboard?   :hahaha:





Seriously man it is looking really good.   :thumbs:   :beerchug:

I will be calling later today for a update.

Now for a update on myself....
I must say I like this hospital. Good food, great service, and they have a arcade, and wireless internet in my room  :greengrin:
Tuesday I got the surgery I have been waiting for since july. In Iraq, the Docs incidentally found a rather large growth/ cyst on my leg. After I get released form here I will get to go home for about a month to heal up. Already as it is I am crutching faster then the nurses can keep up.

What to do with my spare tire? Custom rear bumper with swing out, or keep it in the bed? Suggestions?

Make a swing out with a stinger on it. Like the Poison Spider ones for Jeeps.

When I get it done here I am going to see about getting some Armor up on all 4 corners. I'll keep that rear stinger/ tire carrier in mind.

Newest pics I got...


Keep in mind these pics are old com paired to the actual progress.

I like the looks of that rig!!!!  Looks like Dave and crew did a nice job with it.  I also like the looks of that 4xInnovations dual xmember.

You need a Marlin rear bumper with the corner armor, and a nice Davez front bumper!!!

Get well quickly!!!

                                                                                                       Front springs are not long enough to go further forward.
