I had a car I put HIDs in and depending on what angle you looked at the light, they were either bright white or bright blue. It's just the result of cheap projectors.

Why would you want a 2nd gen, anyway? Even if it was yours. They're junk. I've had one before. Get a 1st gen, they're easier and MUCH cheaper to lift anyway. Leaf springs front/back.

I'm going to use this truck as a snow and mud truck. It's not my daily driver. Why would it need balanced? It's a used one pulled off an 87 W150.

Did it come with rubber vibration dampers on the mounts? Could just be the mount rattling. it's probably nothing important.

Driveshaft

Just bought an 88 Dodge W150 4x4 and on the drive home, the rear driveshaft snapped in half due to rust. Where can I get another one and do any other Dodge vehicles have the same shaft I could use?
