Looks like blue bulbs in the city lights socket. Be careful, in CA it's VERY VERY illegal to have solid or pulsing blue front-facing illumination.

actually i dont think those are blue city lights, i have DJ Auto lenses and they came with blue tipped H1's for high beams and the give the illusion of blue lights when they're not illuminated.

This is what I inferred from that picture.

It's a clean Dodge Caravan. Most Dodge Caravans have shizz loads of rust of it, this does not.

But honestly, why the Dodge?

Lol, this probably isn't it.

You can see the reflection of his newly yellow fogs. That's my guess. But it's Franklyn, so who knows.

Reminds me I need a new jack. Harbor Freight jacks worth it or should I fork up the dough for a little nicer one?

I would never get under a car without jackstands anyways. Not too mention lifting one side of the car at a time is normal for me so the weight thing isn't too big of a deal. The jack I have is just too crappy. Take like 30 pumps to get to the highest, and it's not even that high.

Nothing wrong with something like this right?

Smart. I had one fail on me while I had my hands underneath the car. I was winging it on the side of the road helping a friend, so no stand underneath. I was just lucky the jack didnt just drop the car, it took a second to come all the way down which was just enough time to GTFO
