    My LED bulb order came a day early so I wasted no time to get them installed even though I plan on ordering my aftermarket headlights in another week or so.

    Installed for the top parking light/blinker, 4W LED switchback bulbs. The bulb is white until you put the blinker on, then it turns to amber. I just placed an order for another set of the switchbacks to install for the bottom lights. I orig. ordered the 5W LEDs for the bottom but liked the white light better on the switchbacks.

    I also installed 68-SMD LED bulbs for the fog lights not sure how much light they will cast but I'm mainly concerned about looks for fog use

    I'm trying to think of remaining stock incandescence bulbs that can be replaced with LEDs and I think I've run out of options :happy:

    Disregard the hyperlink for attachment, the post didn't come out right.

    This pic was taken March 10, 2012 and it gives you an idea of the difference in color temperature. This pic was orig. taken to show the diff. when I smoked the driver's side fog light lens.

    Nice job and nice pictures. I almost didn't recognize the truck with the water on it.

    When did you black out the grill? I must have missed that. Did you mention it on here? Or did I just not notice it before?

    I put the new grille on about a month ago maybe? Still searching for a way to contrast the bowtie w/out making it chrome. The mesh is chrome but often looks dark in the shade or on a rainy day and of course, at night.

    For the record, it was a rainy day so I did give it a quick wash just to clean off some road grime :money:

    Here are some shots I took tonight. These were taken in the dark, no streetlights or yard lights surrounding me. Only my parking and fog lights are on.
    The lights are suprisingly bright, I'm anxious to install the lower parking light next week (assuming it ships tomorrow) :great:

    Thank you everyone for the positive feedback!

    The light appears more blue in the picture than if seen in person

    Looks good! But, umm, without being able to see that bowtie I almost mistook the lawn ornament for a Dodge. :gasp:

    The lights do look nice. I thought you kept the truck outta the rain. Like it is a fair weather ride or something. LOL
