    I had it towed because a coil misfired. So my mechanic says I need to replace that and the 2 other coils but recommended OEM parts this time. What do you guys...the experts...think??

    I bought my 1997 in 2005 with 57K and 11 years later, I have 108K.

    I've got the PIAA Led bulbs in my truck. No regrets. Worth every penny. I got mine from Jason Burtman at Burtman Industries.

    Thanks! I was hesitant but i just bit the bullet. I'm planing on keeping my 99 for awhile, so i'll just be a little more conservative when trying to do some desert jumps ;)

    I didn't do it this afternoon, but all in the last week. I repainted the old/beat up skid plates to a flat black and repainted the hub caps that were faded.
