    ok I did it, I molleseted my truck again! Also I dropped the front 3 inches "body lift gone" and pulled the fenders in about 14 inches I think. To be honest I just was board and the sawzaw had a wierd power over me /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif so an hour later I was done and happy, also lost alot of weight /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    But the only thing I had was my new stock headlights, well after making some mounts it looked like a freaking Jeep!

    So after 5 minutes I grabbed the sawzaw and said the hell With that!

    So what driving lights are you using, I wound up going to Wall Mart and getting some rectangle driving lights, with a remote contol = bling

    They will do for now, the stock head lights didn't look very aggressive, plus these are bright /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif..did I mention the remote controle , and the brackets are very adjustable, also since it is narrowed there is alot of extra wire, so I can un hook then and use it as a light in the engine area /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    After market lights like the hella's just seem $$$$ considering they will just get bashed, and I needed low profle to get them in real close.

    what are you using?

    Looks good, but those of us with round headlights get a jeep look out of a GM frontend when narrowed. I have been wondering what lights to use also.

    well I have 82 'fenders on it but when I put the fenders on I didn't have lights to go with it, so I just welded on the round light supports /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Uh and for sandman....that looks great but I took off alot more than that, if I did the lights that you have I would cover the whole rariator /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    since I will be doing a buggy/tube style eventually I think I will get some newer toyota, or honda lights off of a car....flame away /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    FYI.......

    If you run your rig over the road in AZ, and you are street legal, and get stopped by DPS, YOU WILL GET TICKETED for not running DOT approved head lights, and will get ticketed for not having the headlights that are DOT approved adjusted based on the AZ DOT laws. There is no way to get by this when getting stopped by DPS. It's an instant ticket.

    The lights you purchase from Walmart, Kmart, Autozone, are normally not street/DOT legal. Keep this in mind if you plan on running it on the pavement.

    I wanted to go narrower but could not get it to work out well. I had actually cut down the support more but ended up moving the fenders out to make it work. One of the problems I had was I kept the fenders all of the way back so the core support had to lean in to make up the distance lost. I had just enough room to squeek in an electric fan. The hood ended up pulling in around 3 to 4 inches when it was all over.

    I would like to check out yours to see how it worked out. Too bad you live so far away. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Maybe you could put on some Snow Plow lights like Watson did. Even has the turn signals in them. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
