Well, I guess I'll decide and I could always sell the non-adjustable one later, it will be awhile before I get around to installing it. Best price I've seen on an adjustable upper is the Lakewood one...

Apparently you're supposed to pull the grille out slightly to replace the fog light bulbs, which mine barely did. I was cussing the whole time I did mine, they made that way too tight in there.

Looking at it the other night, I don't see how you could get that mount out without at least dropping the tank a few inches, unless you're some kind of magician. Space is tight in that area as it is...

If you're not doing the install yourself you have to decide if the cost of the headers plus labor is worth it to you.

The headers made mine bassier, I dunno. Just going from a high flow catted H...

FWIW I did my install myself, it's not that bad, just takes time.

Also I did not swap out motor mounts but mine were in good shape, and I have lots of clearance around the steering shaft.

Mine was doing that, I pushed a thin screwdriver through the foam at the base of the emblem so the water could drain out. Haven't had a problem since.
