You, sir, are a valuable member of this community. Between this thread and your pillar thread, they should be inspiration for other members to be more in-depth with their modifications as it will only enhance the knowledge that this organization has to offer.

Yeah, I always read manuals cover to cover before I even get the packaging open -- not so much when I was younger though - it was more toss the manual aside, fawk something up, go back read manual, fix problem. It finally clicked one day that those manuals are placed in packages for a reason, lol.

A very awesome compliment, thanks Ryan!!

I just look at it from the standpoint that if I was trying to do something for the first time it would be really helpful to have a how-to or some sort of write-up to follow. It doesn't take that much extra time to snap a few more pics and put a few more words in a thread, but it can help others save so much more time -- totally worth the trouble.

Re: Matt's HID Installation Thread

It sure was your picture thread. I thought you just changed the name of it.

Re: Matt's HID Installation Thread

Very nice install Matt! Is there any risk of breaking any of the clips that hold the bumper on? I might have to do that to put my new headlight assemblies in.

Thanks Jeremy! Yes, the clips will no longer be usable once they are removed. I just used some of the grille clips (it has 6 and doesn't need them all) until I get more.

Re: Matt's HID Installation Thread

What bulb did you use for the fogs? They are listed as 9145, but I have not seen that in a HID conversion setup.
