Let me know how long it lasts or if you have any problems, I've been looking into one of those.

Update on the driveshaft, the ear on the yoke that connects to the u joint broke in half so I'm going to probably be getting a new yoke and heavy duty U joints. My mechanic said it was most likely caused by running 35's on a weak or worn out stock driveline so hopefully this will last a while. Good news is I planned to have the truck in the shop this week anyways for engine work so they'll just keep it a little longer. New underdrive pulley, volant air intake, all front end gaskets, and new driveshaft components so hopefully it all works out.

FINALLY got time to install my light bars. After hours of cutting, grinding, drilling, test fitting and 2 runs to the local hardware store it all worked out great. Did it all with absolutely zero help.... from anyone... in any way......... LOL ok that's a lie , big thanks to the demon for helping me and also johnnymac2k6 for finding me these bars. Definitely need to adjust the angles on them but I'll worry about that tomorrow.
