There's more to do?!
always room for more mods!
Actually room is what's getting to be VERY tight. Also the complexity level keeps going up...
Well it's a little late but I celebrated my 1 year anniversary of ownership on 1/27/2013 arty:

I didn't, but my neighbor decided to do some body work. She slid down a hill and hit my rear bumper. Wasn't too mad since it messed up her car way more than mine. Another reason why i love older trucks....Steel!
Today I watched several videos on how to solder and created a 12v DC tester using a hobby shop train transformer. Now I can test LEDs, bulbs, and circuits before install.
Not much.. Did a quick move to Brooklyn to deliver a 65in LED Tv.. And a little Mod....
Removed the front grille
Removed the front bumper
Rremoved billete bumper slot grille
Fabricated mounts for a pair of Rigid 10" SR-Series Specter light bars
Installed twin Rigid 10" SR-Series Specter light bars into the bumper slots
Modified bumper mounts to allow enough clearance to aim/adjust the light bars
Placed light bar wiring in wire loom and routed/secured it within the bumper
Terminated light bar wiring in an environmentally sealed male connector
Fashioned a ground wire, placed in wire loom, and connected to same ground location on the frame as my auxiliary battery
Fashioned a positive wire, placed in wire loom, soldered a connection to the appropriate position on my Bussmann relay box (to trigger via the FRONT LIGHTS rocker switch in the cab), and heat shrunk it
Routed both the positive and ground connections to a location near where the FRONT LIGHTS connection point will be when the bumper is reinstalled
Tomorrow I should only have to reinstall the bumper, clip the positive and negatives wires to length, fashion an environmentally sealed female connector, connect it, put a fuse in the relay box, test my handiwork, aim the lights, and reinstall the grille. That's the theory, anyway...
Also did this...
Look for the post
