Default Scoreeeee!!!

Landed myself a pair of the ultra rare factory foglight brackets for a 93-97 today. Its amazing what a knock on a door and asking will do.

So you saw a truck with the brackets and went and knocked on the door of the house with the truck and asked for them? I would have probably wanted to punch you looking over my truck like that...but congrats on the find what it cost ya?

I noticed the truck (a 1994 stx reg cab, 6ft bed 4wd) in a drive way on the way to my buddys house. Ive been eyeballing it while driving by for prolly about 3 months, some days it was there some days it wasnt obviously a daily driver. No valance no lights just the brackets hanging there. So after months of telling my buddy i need the brackets and im gunna stop one day he finally forced me over there after i had reported that the truck was there. We walked into the backyard after hearing voices from the garage. I just explained to the guy that i had noticed he had these brackets (without seeming too eager) and that i was interested. After some chit chat about them i "popped the question" i nervously asked in my best american pickers voice "well what do you gotta get out of them?" he replied "if you take them off you can have them"...and the rest as they say is history. They were rusty due to years of western new york winters but some PB blaster and a cheater bar broke all the bolts free after letting it sit over night.

It never hurts to ask! If you don't ask, then you run the risk of letting something slip away. Asking is how I found the radio bezel for my F100 on Ebay. They were selling the entire truck cab, and I saw it was a Ranger Lariat trim truck. I wanted the bezel from it, so I fired off an email, and sure enough it had the bezel I wanted, which is now in my F100.

I was considering taking the brackets. Lol. But they were rusty so a steath night run woulda been tough. 06 tails are kind of easier to find. Hell you can actually find them on ebay. I kinda always went with the whole itll never happen if you dont ask, you loose 100% of the cahnces you dont take kind of a thing. Im just super pumped to put them on and get some lights now.

Brackets are installed. Now i fully see where people get the stories of being towed by them. These puppies are stout! Factory style fogs are ordered. After i get them and get them installed i gotta get hids for them.
