Clay is easy. Wax is hard. I hate waxing. I could do a wash, clay and wax in under 2 hours on my jetta. Truck takes 5 hours!

Don't do it. Cheap ebay lights leak and crack. The halos burn out pretty quick. Plus the riced out look doesn't suit a truck.

I'd put silicone along the edges and smoke the lenses slightly. I do want to put '09+ headlights in it if I ever have the money or time.

My brother put a set of "euro" style headlights on his 97 F350. I think they look good. He might have still have an extra set. I can ask when he gets back from vacation if he would be willing to sell them.

My ranger didn't take any time. Longest was cleaning the chrome and then the aftermarket rims took forever. Of I did my truck with no interruptions I think I could do it in 6 hrs not including detailing inside or cleaning windows but I just bought some fw1 stuff and that made the outside of the windows look amazing and it didn't even put fingerprints after I rubbed my hand all over the glass after I did one

It was a PITA to get the new strut in. Had to use a crowbar to wedge it in there. Just a lot of work! Tried to get the first tie rod end out and ended up slipping and hammered on the threads, muffed them up. Had to chase the threads.
