Neat rides.
So, what are the pros/cons compared to the Blazer?
I have had 4 s-series trucks and will always love them, but it was time for a change. The blazer is more roomy and more solid than the xB. Also with drop spindles it makes for a very comfortable ride with even a 4 or 5 inch drop. Those trucks are dated now and with the xB I feel like I am riding in a more modern vehicle. The gas mileage is one of the biggest advantages for the xB. I am very curious how the ride will be with the DF210's I see there are mixed reviews. This was my second day driving it and I am impressed with it so far. Just waiting for my stuff to arrive and I am sure that I will have more to say. It seems like the accessory options are endless which is good. You may not recognize mine by the time I am done lol.

soul looks sick. df210's actually ride pretty good ive had em for a while
That is good to know. I havent always had the best of results with lowering springs.
I like her Soul a lot. The tint really made a huge difference. We had a layer of 5% put on over the factory tint and it is completely dark. The accessories are slow in arrving for it though and they are $$$$! The Soul and the xB have a very similar feel to them when driving.

Finished the initial install of my system and I am very impressed with the Pioneer Premium H/D and stock speakers. After running my Memphis PR-50.4 and my Memphis PR-1000.1 along with 2 Memphis M-Class 12's, this thing really pounds. I am working on a custom box with LED's and will post pictures once I complete it. My springs and HID kits have all been shipped so needless to say I am excited to get started. With any luck I will be posting the mod pics next week.

Sold ! , **** piaa bulbs are that much. The harness doesnt get hot and melt does it?
Funny that you say that. I was thinking the same thing about the PIAA's before I bought these.

No issues with harness heat. Mine are 35w. Everything plugged up nicely. The double sided sticky tape they provided doesnt work so well for mounting the ballasts (plus it is cold here) so I used some wire ties. We will see how long they last but I dont expect many problems. HID's have come a long way in the past 5 years. Plus a lot cheaper too.

I thought about changing the tail lights but I have always been a fan of tinted stockers. Opinions?
