    That was cutting it close.
    Any issues with getting the warranty? Did you have to send proof of the mileage?

    Good question and no, all verbal. I took a picture that recorded the date/time just in case though. Thought for sure he would ask me to send one. Jerry is a great guy and will recommend him to anyone, very busy. Took about three weeks for us to connect so it worked out. As a last ditch effort, called him randomly, and he answered, so he got a sale.

    Thanks. Have to completely disassemble the hood bulge to install, little invasive because of the welded plastic fasteners used during assembly.

    The lights are the 150LM 3” - https://www.vleds.com/shop-products/light-bars/wpb-hv-a.html

    Thank you. Can I assume you went with two 3" pass through bars and one 3" end bar?

    Seems the pass through bars are out of stock with no eta on restock. :(

    Yes, and the 10’ extension to get to the parking light circuit. Have to notch out a tiny section of the grille at the end(s) behind the light to pass the wire connector(s) through, 4 - M3 lock washers, washers and screws attach each light from the back through the grille. Screw spacing is perfect for the grille. Wiring is fastened to the top inside of the grille cavity at the mid point between each light, and exits through a grommet in the end of the cavity.

    That happens with them, had to wait almost 3 months last year for a 6” red bar. Probably be fine to use 3 end bars, just order the 3 way splitter, or cut the plugs off and wire them together with whatever. Might be little harder to hide wiring, but less notching of the grille.:notsure:

    Finally got around to doing the first brake job at 50k miles. I know some people do not like the powerstop z36 rotors but I wanted to give them a try. so far so good but they are barely bed in. I also swapped in stainless steel red pvc coated brake lines, changed the brake fluid, and painted the calipers. Now I just need to do a good spring cleaning and a wax.
