No problem, and I haven't put any lights behind them, at this time I don't think I will. I plan on either getting a avid bar or maybe just save up and get a new bumper.

Just added the tailgate reinforcement, cargo net, bed mat, added LED strip lights in the bed and finished installing the C/F dash kit.

Next Mods:

Wow! That looks awesome. Is there any way you would like to help me do this? Maybe next mod day...

sure, just gotta purchase the kit! install can be tricky due to some of the angles certain trim pieces make, but overall it's not too bad.

haha thanks, partially due to me finding this forum and seeing all the other nice trucks on here, gave me plenty of ideas! But no more major spending for a while, be eating candle lit dinners with cup o noodles for a bit now.

Today's mod.... T rex eyelids... ( these were purchased weeks ago and finally got painted )

Still looking good and not over done either. Would you post a pic from the front too? BHLMs are my next mod if I am able to buy them instead of doing them myself. I want to save my patience for the satoshi. LOL

No problem, I'll get a pic tomorrow as it's dark here already. The Black housings I got for $140 online ( seller was local to me ). They fit perfect, however the beam pattern seems a little off. But as with any aftermarket light I would recommend sealing them with some sorta weather proof stuff to keep them from fogging. ( I wish I did before I installed )

Gotcha on the sealant. I am eyeballing some JDM Diamond (sp?) ones on eBay. Hopefully they are good. Does the beam pattern seem off from needing to be aligned or does it seem to come from the reflective part? My headlights seem useless now that I put the HIDs in the fogs. LOL

well I put HIDs in mine and the pattern seems scattered, although I never had HIDs in with the OEM's so I'm not sure if that's just how it is.

You didn't put lights behind yours did you? If so, what did you use to mount them?
Hope you didn't spray your radiator!, kinda defeats the purpose when you coat it with an insulator!

Not sprayed yet but I plan to do a light coat of the high temp grill paint to blacken the silver looking parts. Good looking out! Thanks.

Hey man. Did you get the viper alarm installed? if so, how is it and what model? Any install issues? I am getting one in a couple of weeks and am trying to decide on one. I definitely need remote start for the winters here.

Got it done, had a friend do it, no issues he mentioned. works great. its the viper 5701 I believe, I got it refurbished for $89! the remote start is definitely the best part.

Sweet deal!! That is the one I am thinking of getting. I read it has some temp sensors. Are those to tell you what the temp inside the cab is so you know it is cooling or heating depending on settings?

yeah it has a thing to sense the temp inside the cabin, I guess so if you're at work and you know its hot you can crack the windows remotely ( if you have the power window module ). I've tested it in cold, but not in hot so not sure how accurate it is.
