    Holy crap I've been gone for a whole I apologize, schools been eating up sometime and the fact that computer crashed etc. ummm let's see update as to what's been going on, no longer work security at the college, I was taken off the site for some pretty stupid reasons, and since then i haven't been getting many hours thank god for the GI Bill. The truck has been running decent, for my birthday my parents got me a GO-LIGHT spot/search light for my truck it's a magnetic base so I can take it off before I get on the highway plugs into the cigarette light and has a wireless remote to control it. With my tax returns I was able to buy Nitto terra grapplers 285/75R16's the truck definitely sits a little higher just have to do some trimming so there isn't any rubbing I have missed you guys and keep trying to find time to pop in real quick and let everyone know what's going on, and Erica I've lost almost 36 pounds!!!

    I'll get pics up as soon as I can for sure, the spot light is awesome, it's one of the cheaper go-lights but it's still pretty bright

    ok so heres two pictures....the light is magnetic so you can pop it on and off the truck it rotates 360 but stops at the rear where the wire plugs in and you have to go all the way around to the other side which is no big deal, it also goes up and down 90 degrees

    What you catch the girls in swimwear running through the trees? I bet it lights up a good portion of the country and would be great for night hunting.

    We don't have any lights for the outside up there and I have to unlock a key box to get keys for everything and it wa nice not to have to wrestle with a flash light

    One of those ball cap or headband flashlights would have solved that problem a lot more cheaply! And it seems you traded wrestling with a flashflight for stringing a cord from the top of your truck to a cigarette outlet, yes?

    Ya a head lamp would be cheaper but I always lose them, the cord doesnt bother me, since I have the antenna wires running through the ext can window right now until I can re-run them, and going down trails at night is easier to being able to see stuff all around

    Time for the drill and grommets . got to clean up that situation and make it a constant. get a toggle switch and some wiring supplies while upgrading your mod. As long as it isnt on the law can't say anything, can they?

    Depends on what state it's in. Some states require auxiliary lights to be covered. Some states limit the number of them you can have to two (2), meaning if he has fog lights it might be an issue. Some states to both. You get the idea.
