    New black Headlight housings accompanied with some LED bulbs really made her front end look the best it has in years. Ripped off my step bars for more clearance even with weathertech the inside gets pretty dirty now due to that. Oh yeah, and probably one of the few 3rd gens in my area with a pioneer double din Apple CarPlay radio with navigation as well as DVD, and a backup camera I wired up myself (it was a PITA) but now this thing is awesome for trips it’s basically a giant iPhone on my dash. The backup camera I used was the pioneer brand one and the picture on it is beautiful for a backup camera not exaggerating 720p works good on a dark unlit pass at night, then again I changed license plate lamps which helps and all interior bulbs to LeD. New smaller yeti really makes this truck nicer. 245’s looking mighty small with the 3” spacers it’s time for 285’s and really some new arms up front, ah damn bills . Drove it 5,000 miles since June, no problems. Also replaced the rear hatch panel black now (saved 170$ buying a flat black) but its gonna be painted soon when the rest of the car is . Really want more power than my 4-0 has to offer, but don’t want a car payment, any suggestions for a reliable swap?
