Bite the bullet and do the Sport swap, they will require some work and are more $$ to set up but the light output is fantastic even with conventional bulbs Not to mention they are the best looking light to give the truck an updated but not ricey look.

What running boards are those? Dad is looking for something similar for his Dakota.

You can get replacement check valves at O'reilly, Autozone, Advanced Auto, etc. I put one on my Ram yesterday. Took a bit of fiddling to get it right. But it does work well.

Sorry for the late reply guys..I've been out of order lately due to a motorcycle accident :/ I'm not sure what kind of running boards those are, my dad had installed them a long time ago. I like them though because they protect the rocker panels compared to nerf bars. So I finally ordered some new oem headlight housings. Man they are a b**** to install. Somebody had mentioned a method of removing the black plastic cap on the top of the bumper for more clearance. I can't seem to remove the screw on the passenger side. It's stuck in there. I tried WD-40 and other penetrating oils but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Loosen the bumper mounting bolts, and just let the bumper sag some. Replace the headlights, put a jack under the bumper to get it back where it needs to be, and re-tighten the mounting bolts.

That sounds like it would be pretty simple. Is there any diagram for that somewhere? Or are they easy to get to?

Lay on your back under the truck, and there they are. I HIGHLY recommend air tools for that exercise though.

I LOVED the on-base hobby shop. That place was awesome.

I'll share my headache (and solution) from my experience with the vents switching to Defrost under open throttle. I started at the intake and worked my way to the Vent control checking/replacing all the vacuum components (lines, valves, fittings, etc.)

Well, it's always the last thing you check right??

Cruise control. There's a vacuum line that runs around the front of the intake and ends up under the battery at the cruise unit. That line had disintegrated due to some battery acid getting on it. Swapped that and the vents work perfectly now.
