I was trading in a Mitsubishi Spyder, for a 09 Chevy Colorado for $9,000. I drove it for two days and went back to sign the papers for the trade in which they gave me 1,000 for the Mitsu, when I saw this tan beauty staring at me..I asked who owned it, and the sales rep said they just got it on a trade in, and I said here's the keys to chevy, I want that, and I want it for 9,000... I had to pretend to walk out three times before they caved....

When I get to that point, I'm looking at two of them that hold the stereo.
One I would need to cut the front off the second would need to relocate the emergency brake...

So I got held up helping out the parents, and my sister, since she turned into a horder (I seriously called the show and asked if they would film her..lol) and the fact that my front bumper came a week later. But it's begun, Yesterday I mounted the winch, front, and rear bumper, tomorrow goes the super charger.
I'm not to happy about the mount for the front bumper. so look for update for that. Right now it has three bolts from the bottom and one thru the side of the frame rail. But very happy with the heavy dutyness. Bumper and winch weighed in at 150 pounds.

The fifth pic shows the three bolts that mount thru the bottom( I only have one bolt in as I was making adjustments, but there are two more holes there), and there is a fourth bolt thru the side close to the tip of the frame. the beauty about this is I can send this piece back, and have him remake it to use another bolt behind the mount for the frame..

So I busted out the projector kit, and found out that the Halo is the wrong size, but I'd like to show how easy this install has been.
