So should I just use 12 gauge wire or what is the best to use?

Is it the same for the tail lights or something different. As for the wiring part.

Or better yet is there a different discussion on the tail?

Knew I saw it somewhere.
Don't think my model will do it though.



Also, anybody have directions of how to get the headlights off on a 98. Mine has, well here is a pic. I worked and worked and nothing, they surely don't come off like the newer instructions.

NOTE! if your blinker mod is not ALTERNATING it is a fuse problem...in my case it was fuse 31!
