    got my CB antenna & Back up lights installed

    makes life a lot easier when backing up at night! I ended up needing my reese hitch so I snapped out that middle piece and put it over my hitch and zip tied it from the back to keep it secure. Probably the best investment I've made for my truck was these lights!

    Torsion Twist Done

    I'll have to get a pic of my shackles now that they are on, Been working a lot lately so haven't had a chance. I haven't really noticed that much of a difference in ride quality and I have been on some bumpy terrain. Maybe that means my shocks are that bad lol I'm planning on a body...

    Torsion Twist Done

    this guy was determined I know what a bad idea it was. After the speech and they did my alignment and it was time to pay I had to sign the warranty paper thing and he said "signing this states that you acknowledge we did your alignment here and that I DID notify you that the torsion lift will...

    Torsion Twist Done

    yeah... I hate the lean. Had a 2000 mercury mountaineer 5.0 and it had it bad. My trac was a half an inch lower on the drivers side so I leveled it with the TT. Tomorrow I will tackle the shackles. I am scheduled to get an alignment on Tuesday since the shop was packed today, But two of the...

    Torsion Twist Done

    I plan to do the add a leaf once I have everything else (body lift/tires/rims), The shackles were given to me as a gift so I'm going to use them for the next couple of months to appease the gifter. I know they are known to flatten springs so I don't want to use them long term. I need to look...

    Torsion Twist Done

    I thought I would have time to do them tonight but it got dark quick. I had all the bolts off with only one spray of WD-40 5 seconds before I went to un bolting them. Under my rig is pretty rust free, I was surprised when I went to buy it. The shackles look like new besides a few dirt clumps I...

    Front Side Window Tint?

    I've tried a few times to install tint... I will never do that again lol you never know if you are getting quality film with the do it yourself kits. I would rather dish out the extra $$$ to have someone else do it and get it fixed if there is a problem later on (which has happened to me)...

    got my CB antenna & Back up lights installed

    Yeah so I've been told... a lot lol I realize the placement is best on the roof of the vehicle but that isn't an option for me. Overall I'm happy with the performance of what I ended up with. Everyone I roll with that has a CB in their truck places the antenna in this exact location, granted...

    will this cb mount location work?

    that is what has surprised me the most, The more expensive the community the more rules they put on people. It's like the more you spend the less you can do.

    got my CB antenna & Back up lights installed

    nope I had to wire them in myself, Our trucks don't come with the 6 or 7 point plug. The light comes with three wires, Backup, Power, Ground Ground obviously has to be grounded to metal somewhere back there Backup wire has to be hooked into the wire going to your back up lights, You can...

    will this cb mount location work?

    some of the rich communities are not even allowed trucks unless you are a landscaper or working on a home. This is the best job I've ever had lol I wouldn't trade it for any upgrade. I work whatever days I want, Take off whatever days I want and I only work from 10AM to 2PM and never on...

    will this cb mount location work?

    my main issue is that I work for a vacation home and condo rental company. Most of the time I am required to pull into the garages of the homes and condos and they're usually set up for beamers not sport trac's so the ceilings are low if that were not the case I would of put a 102" whip on it...

    will this cb mount location work?

    I won't know until tomorrow or so when I get out on the highway exactly how well the antenna is working, I just know it's picking up further than the (tuned) 36" cobra mag mount I have had on the roof for the past two days. I think my dad is getting tired of going on CB test runs for me lol...
