I bet you can hardly wait for it to get dark outside, huh? I'd like to see how well it works.

it's amazing how bright this thing is,, it's like daylight
i'll get a picture for you ,, you cannot even tell when your headlights are off or on,,,
it was bought from an online dealio,, the price was pretty reasonable,,
with and without the led,, fairly evident which is which,,,
forgot how to rotate the pics,, oh crap,,
than some 285 75 16's made it on from another rig i have,,,
and these got freed up,,
i have 2 sets of mounts,, so they'll make it on soon,,
Hey Pete keep us updated, looking good so far.
work slowed a bit , had a heart attack, but as soon as the doc says okay, i'm gonna do some things with this truck,
got a Superlift, a body lift and some 35's calling her Name,,
Take care of yourself! Trucks can wait!
OH i FULLY intend on waiting till i am better before i start this,,
Good grief, it's slow in here. Glad you are still hanging in there with us Pete. You just take care of yourself.
Hmmm,, bit of an issue developed,,
driving into town last weekend cruising along all fine and shiz, and it happened,,,
Rounded a corner and started up a hill, about 3/4 of the way to the top it shifted back from o/d to i believe 4th gear, as it did the rpm's went way up, almost to the 6000 range,,,
i let off the pedal and eased it back on slowly a few times,, as i crested he hill it must have shifted back into the o/d cause it caught and i continued on my way, ,
got to a corner with a stop sign,, came to a complete stop,, no worries,,
lanes were clear , pushed the gas,, no movement, ,
pulled the shifter down to 2 gear, away i went,, , but it seems i am missing a few gears now,,
it will take off, shift a couple times, than it's missing one, o/d works, , no reverse though,,
so off to Manitoba i go to get one after Vroomzoomboom found one for me at a great price ,
yeah there is some crap in the back of the Explorer,.,, but there is a transmission,,
did some trans work today,, old one is out, new one is in,,
while doing that, i put in a box liner and a roll bar for a friend,,
got alot done today , ,
The trans is out and the new one is in and hooked up,, just tidying up the details today, as soon as it's not below 0 c,,
this is not a job for the average guy ,, what a pain it turned out to be to get the o2 wires, the starter bolts, among several others,,, that caused more then a few cuss words,,
i'm not going to start any of the lift action till it is a running driving truck again,,
but hopefully that's pretty soon,,,
it's a complete truck again,, and running and driving,, it was a haul with the heart not being 100 % that slowed my work down some, but it's done, and i am happy,,,
next is body lift and then some more , not sure what all yet, but want more out of it,
this space is going to get interesting soon,,,
da tales to foller,,,
i'm sick, help me,,,
uhhh ,, yeah,, 03 FX Off Road ??
led headlights too,,,
some of the fleet
