    I just had a random question...How are they attached? I never gave any this any thought, and can't look at the truck right now cause its the middle of the night. Are they bolted on somehow? Or attached with adhesive? Thanks

    The outer housing has a small torx screw on the bottom, after removing it, you can slide the housing up exposing 3(I think)sheet metal bolts, can't remember the head size but you will figure it out.
