look at the bolts on your TPS, or MAP sensor...or any sensor on the throttle body. Those are torx bits....#15 if I'm not mistaken.
It would be a good investment to get a set of torx sockets or drivers. They come in handy when working on 2nd gen trucks (such as servicing the tranny).

now ive got another issue... me and dad went to checker autoparts, got a small set of torx bits and a repair manual for Chrysler vehicles, it covers 97-00 machines, including my beloved Beastie... now i think the screw i was looking at was the up/down adjuster screw... *needs to figure out where the mounting screws are*

yea...the screws with the torx heads are to aim your headlights. all you need is a screw driver to get em out.

if you have a soddering (sp?) gun or a dencent terminal crimp set, just splice into the leads on the headlight bung.
edit: a multimeter would be helpful too. if you don't have one, get any 12v bulb and fabricate a holder with 2 wires, this way you can tell if you have power to the circuit you are testing.

still cant figure out how to put the damn light in... looks like the only way to put the lights in is to take the bumper off... amazingly, my truck is part metric... me and dad have tried everything to get the bolts for the bumper off. even a breaker bar couldnt get enough leverage... we couldnt find a 12v impact wrench either....

edit: also, when i plugged the main light thingie from the Beast into the main socket on the halo lights, my high and low beams reversed... Oo;

most all the bolts are metric or torx, even though some 11/16 and 3/4 wrenches will work. bumper bolts are 18 mm, which is not included in most standard sets (17 and 19). when i straightened up my bumpers it took a lot of pb blaster penetrating oil and a piece of pipe on a breaker bar to get them loose. In fact, most all those bigger bolts take a cheater pipe.
