No real hardcore tech, but just some tinkering.

Got the LED's installed in the corner light for the turn signals. Wicked simple. $14 total. I may go back and install a second set if they aren't bright enough, but its easy to see it blinking during the day so I don't see it being an issue.

Remove the corner light. Cut the wires for the turn signals. Route them up to the corner. Green to Black, White to White. Drill (1) 3/4" Hole. Install the light with the grommet turned around backwards of the way it comes in the package. Reinstall the corner light, done.

It will blink faster than normal because I didnt change out the flasher for one that is made for the impedance of the LED's, but the faster blinking doesn't really bother me.

Lights removed, wire re-routed.


Wires matched and ready for heat shrink


Where I mounted the LED


Done

Ordered the trailer hitch for this thing today. Hoping to get it in sometime at the beginning of the week in prep for hunting season and some camping trips. It will be nice to be able to use my hitch rack again vs. throwing everything in the cargo area.

Got the hitch on last night after we pulled the cases from Robbie's truck. As we were torquing everything down the guy that was buying the cases pulled in...who other than ol Zack from Elkin. Laughing Good to know Rob's cases are going to be beat on properly and put to good use.

Doing a little work cleaning out behind the warehouse and making runs to the dump. New hitch already comes in handy.

Putting this up here so Daylon can hate some more Laughing



Really though, the lighting in the truck SUCKED. Even after upgrading the headlights, still not HID because a good retrofit kit is stupid expensive, and not having foglights, I always had subpar visibility on back roads at night and going up into the mtns.

One of these days I am going to finally get around to building a replica of Cody's old bumper or just ordering an Addicted Offroad lowpro bumper.

It paid for itself just this weekend going up to the camp and then coming back last night. Two on the ride up on Thursday night and three last night on the way home. I would have absolutely creamed the two standing in the middle of the road on Thursday with the range my high beams have.
