These are the same as the LED that comes on the Autobiography, but in DOT spec.

How hard were those lights to mount?

Thanks to Jon Carter who worked through some kinks in the process to deliver a top notch item.
Harold, glad to see you got them installed and are happy with the product!

To those wondering, the "kinks" were not with the rock sliders themselves, but rather FedEx's almost impressive ability to annihilate packages. :

I greatly appreciate Harold's patience while I worked to make it right for him.

Are the ones for the 110's available yet?
What type of finish is on them again?
Is shipping included in the price or can we use our own UPS account for shipping?

Replaced steering wheel with a Range Rover one. I tried to order a 36 spline steering wheel from LRDirect.com (QTB102760PMA), but received an email that said:

"We are really sorry, the following parT is not available from the supplier: QTB102760PMA"

This was the OE brand. The LR brand was $413.31, so I didn't even inquire about availability of that one (the OE was listed for $181.00).

I bought the Range Rover one for 110.00 GBP shipped to my door from ebay.uk (unfortunately before Brexit).

The Range Rover steering wheel is a tad bit smaller than the original one and since the 200Tdi gave me power steering, the extra bit of room is appreciated.

First time with the $65 REI garage sale Yakima bike rack on the 110. We all did 20 miles around gateway Floyd Bennet field, Riis Beach and Fort Tilden. Perfect day.

If you're referring to the LED headlights, they're straight forward replacement with a Philips screw driver.

110's are on the horizon for real. I'll probably do a pre-order and do batch of them. There will be XD's and HD's with tree bars.

They are black powder-coated

Shipping is not included in the price. You can use your own shipping account if you so choose.

Maybe +4 feet? I feel much better with that rack on the 110 than I do on the Subaru. The bikes are higher up off the ground and I think I get a wider berth in the truck.

Just did a couple little things over the weekend...

1) Swapped out some bulbs on the license plate light, still not sure why it doesn't work
2) Installed some window tinting
3) Quick test drive to check steering alignment

Get the GKNs, don't waste your time with the Precision 344s....their quality control has changed and it's a bear trying to get the Precisions to fit these days.
