Well of course I had to mount all of them and try them out.....

55w HID low beams:

30" Combo Amber Rigid:

x4 8" VisionX 35w HIDs: (1 spot, 3 euro, will be swapping a lense for a 2nd spot)

50" Combo Rigid:

All lights except high beams on:

None of the lights are aimed properly and none of them were bolted on tight, I just wanted to get an idea. The car in front of my truck is only 2 driveways away and there is a street light between the two driveways.

And not all that great of a video... shock tuning will probably be started on the next trip. Need to get another fuel pump, current one starts cutting out when the truck has been running awhile.

I foresee an ls swap in that thing with an 8-1 exhaust haha. The interior is the hard part I think.

Well took the truck out to Lucerne today... truck ran good, except for I think the pick up in the cell is starting to go, starts cutting out/bogging after running it for awhile (which I thought was the old fuel pump). So now I have to figure out how to lift the bed enough to get my hands to get the cell lid off and check the pick up line.

Made a run to Slash X to get food... like 20 people in line to order, so made my way over to Barstow, was heading down parallel to the road, was on and off the gas and even with the headsets on the truck sounded unusually loud. Got to Del Taco, and sure enough, the exhaust broke. Sounds like a boat with a BIG lopey cam at idle, on the gas it sounds like doo-doo butter.

New bedsides should be going on soon and will get the exhaust fixed when the bedsides go on.

Well after Adam's purchase I followed suit and order one as well. And Steve (socalmoto) at Dirt Designs is making the new tail light mounts for me. Once I get the lights/mounts back the truck should be getting the bedsides installed pretty quick after.

She looks good as new, haven't been on here in a while. Hope that fuel issue is simple. I understand the kiss method well.
