Actually they we're taken out right after I put them in because of the accident. They we're replaced with a set of Warn's.

Which model warns do you have. I only ask because I have Stock hubs in my truck and the auto locvk no longer works. And was wondering which company or if to get premium hub locks.

They are not the premiums. Which is fine as it doesn't get put in 4x4 much. More of a just in case.

Just make make sure you plug the lines. You don't want water in the bearings.

Alright. Soon I'll make a thread as it is the new secondary. The mustang is primary, solely for better fuel economy.

Added a Bluetooth stereo to the Camper today. It came pre-wired for one. I also wired it on a switch that acts like a ignition key. So it will not suck down the battery.

Most places we have Internet now, or we can get coverage, so who needs a tv, when can stream movies, pandora, Iheart or whatever. :afro:

A few weeks ago we took a family vacation with the truck and camper . In 11 days we went through 10 states, 9 national parks/monuments and traveled over 4000 miles. Everything went great and it is a trip my family will remember forever . Here are some highlights.

It's had a 27 in it and I went to a 29. Battery was 4.5 years old, so I can't complain to much.:dunno:

Love the new headlights. Is there a reason you didn't go with the 05 one piece headlight?

To get the 05 lights to fit right you really need to do the whole header panel swap. You want them to be mounted nice and tight and everyone that cuts the header panel to get them to work usually later on swaps to the 05 front end just to get everything to sit right. Gotta love the 02+ lights, I run silverstars in my 02 F250.

Yes, that would require more work and expense. If I'm going to go '05 lights, I'm doing the grill and bumper too. Wasn't ready to go that far.

Also swapped my fog lights to 9005 bulbs which are brighter. Had a extra set sitting around from our old Volvo. I'll be adding yellow film over them at one point too.

Picked up a set of high in chains for snow off CL.


I'll also be getting a HID swap kit for my KC lights

Ah, I knew people cut them but I wasn't totally sure as I still have an uncut 2000 header panel but have a 1 piece light. The previous owner did it so I wasn't sure if it was just a different type of aftermarket light. The grill however defenity doesn't fit correctly on my truck. The bottom attachment clips on the bottom are in spots about 1 inch apart from stock. I may be placing the other one back on sometime next week due to fitment issues.

lost the camper today. :(


Was cleaning it out and stepped away to use the restroom. Camper was plugged in and charging.My wife starts screaming that it's smoking and the carbon monoxide detector is going off like crazy. I run out and the entire thing is filled with black smoke, we unplug it and disconnect the camper battery (was on the truck but not plugged in.) While my wife is got a leaf blower blowing in the back door so we can try to tell what's burning. We see flames under the electrical pannel and I have no choice to bust out the fire extinguisher and go in, with of fear of it all going up.


Get all under control and don't see and visible damage but the entire thing reeks of smoke. Going to call the insurance company as it's fully covered. I pretty sure it's done.
