    This is your friendly reminder to grease your aftermarket UBJ. Or to DOUBLE CHECK your aftermarket UBJ has grease in it.

    Same. But as long as he's happy...
    I can say that his Colights LED headlights impressed the hell out of me when I was riding passenger a few weeks back. I still need to install mine.

    Wow those go way farther than the stock fogs. Hell even the LED bulb replacements you recommended me don't go that far. Definitely a spot pattern. I wasn't sure if fogs were meant to be spot or flood, so on my 4wd, I used pods that had both flood and spot patterns.

    Yea, but I think fogs shouldn't be that high. Aren't they supposed to light the area between the vehicle and low beams? Asking for a friend.

    yep. Butaguysgottalightwhereaguysgottasee. Gotta break out of those rules boxes. Society has begun the implosion, shine your lights anywhere you want but over the double yellows.

    How'd you take measurements of that?
    I think I need to adjust my headlights up some since I'm lowered.

    I did this also.

    I had to change grease tubes right before greasing up UBJ in my SPCs. Did a couple test pumps, no problem. Start pumping, no problem. Passenger side plumped right up. Went to driver side and gave 10-15 pumps and called it a day. Realized some days later after going to grease driveline that I wasn’t getting grease. Apparently hit an air pocket or something in the new tube. I don’t think the driver side UBJ got more than a pump or two, if any at all. Granted I don’t drive a ton of miles so … meh. But still. It happens.

    Shit happens bro. Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. Every MFer on this forum has had something like this happen, some just aren't bold enough to admit it. I own up to my mistake, I had a hardware failure, it happens.

    I zeroed the angle finder out on my drive way. Then just tilted the housing down till I got to the 8 degree marker. And fars as the put board angle, had to use a tape measure and some maths. But they are about 3 to 4 degrees angled outboard.

    I sure did. No flippy floppy wires for me good sir. Plus I know that's not their final resting spot. It'll be close but they'll be mounted on the actual bumpers somewhere. I'll have @JakeJake help us make that decision when the time comes
