theyre nice man. the 12"s? A bunch of my friends have subs and theirs dont even come close to the jl's. Hows your amp? Have you ever thought about getting a jl amp? I was looking into it but i dont know if it would really be that worth it you know?

my alpine amp pushes my 1 12 perfectly, i actually had to back the amp off a little, the 1 w3 rattles my whole truck n anybody that rides with me hates it n says its to loud. i looked at the JL amp but the guy said this amp n i will get numbers in the AM for ya, pushes alot better signal n true amps. i used to have it hooked to 2 w0, n now ive got it on 1 w3. beautiful sound. my whole sound system is JL, door speakers n all

Also, there are 2 torx screws in the light housing, if you want to remove those make sure you have a torx set.
i disagree. I've opened four different sets of 10th gen lights before. 8 mins @ 230*, pry apart carefully, then 2-3 mins more and as you are prying, use a knife to cut. its easy and fun for me. i love messing with lights. what torx are you referring to? the three adjustment bars are held in by #2 phillips and the glare shield has a small phillips as well

The bulb shield and the chrome housing that everyone paints are held on by torx screws. There were no phillips on the set of 04s I opened and its still the same on my set of 08 lights.

Just to clarify- I'm talking about 10th gen (97-03) Lightning replicas

Rapter have you opened up any 04-08 lights? If not, try it and tell me if you have trouble. You know what you should do xlt, you should make 2 halos, one for the lights and one for the blinker (hook up to blinker light and put orange led in). It could flash when the blinker does

the IV kit is brand named bulb, ballasts, etc. Longer life and better products.

Like Alex said, the FX-R IV kit is all the same as the III kit, except you are given the choice of new/used Philips 5208 bulbs (best bulbs on the market) and OE ballasts from either Denso, Hella, or other factory reputable companies.

For the added cost, I didn't think it was worth it.
