Hollister, love the headlights! What kind are they?

Any pics of the tailgate swap? Maybe someone could do a "how to" for us newbies to the diesel world...

Nope! It won't fit so if you find one you better just send it over to me.

The truck is in my signature with the 08 tailgate and yea making that a sticky would be a good thing as many people are switching to 08 tailgates!!
