    Hide all the wiring so it looks good!!! Don't cut too much of the plastic vallance out, or you could take it off. I'll try to take some pics tomorrow in the daylight to show you. As far as the wiring you could run the wires along the channel that goes over the radiator and zip-tie them, also loosen the airbox and run the wires under it...much cleaner. also use heatshrink for the turn/marker light splices. Other than that...depending on how mechanical you are it will be easy...OOOHHH yeah and don't forget to KEEP the clips inside the frame for the swaybar incase you sell the truck or take the plowmount off...TRUST ME ON THAT ONE!!!

    negotiate the price down a few hundred bucks and use that "extra" money to have some one else put it on.

    Don't get your panties in too big of a bunch, I didn't mean it in a insulting way....although I could see where you would interpret that way. :realmad: My bad.

    Once you post to a thread it automatically will "subscribe" you to it's mailing list, the pre formed email is a bit misleading as it isn't always (most times) directed to you, but to the OP if not another poster. It's simply a way of notifying you there has been new posts to the thread.
