So it looks like i blow out the driver side strut, when i looked to see what up i find the bad strut, then i see what looks like rocks on top of the Exhaust pipe, looks like i have a bad CV boot, I may need to slow down on the high bank turns, No way to much fun.

I Have the newer connector from the Mirrror harness to the camera. Do I need to connect the red, green or black wires to anything. I have a 2LT. I have it hooked up now except for these three wires and I don't get video on the mirror and the power button on the left will not go green. Any suggestions?

PM you back, So i had a old halo headlight, and you know how i am adding a RGB LED and controller to the headlights, All this time i was opening the headlights to do the install, I tried to pull the old LED out with out opening the headlight, It will not come out that way with out a trick.

The trick is i had to drill 2 holes to get a torx in the front to take out the two front screws the other 4 torx screws can be removed by removing the bulb cover and hid ballast.


Have some pics but will hold on to them for know, My have pics of the new headlights some time Sunday and a surprise for members.

Here you go long day and not done but one of the first fitment test, its still not done on the grill on top, or the lower grill need to go in 1-1/2" for the look and that is next now that the top grill fits almost some more grinding in the AM, Still need to wire in the Halo's but that will get done too.
