Thanks! She's coming along. A couple of days ago I attempted to take the roof rack off but decided to put it back on. The screws that go into the roof of course have threads. Well, those threads have a little big of a shoulder on them that sticks out of the roof about a half inch. So until I can do it right with removing those threads and welding up the holds the roof rack stays on for now but I've got plans for removing that rack and smoothing the rear gate a bit at the same time. I'm looking at these happening probably in the spring due to the cost of getting the roof and rear gate painted.

Yeah, it's just a subtle touch I'd like to do that would just smooth out the lines a little bit Then on the rear gate I plan on shaving the wiper and the pull handle. It's an automatic up tailgate so I don't really need the handle and it really looks good when done

Pics of my headlight replacement

Before



After



The main difference is in the new headlight assemblies and the LEDs in the turn signals and corners.

LED DRLs....kinda hard to tell in the pic but they are bright (yes the burb is dirty and needs washed )


Here's a pic of the diff between old housing vs new housing
