    Nice!! Welcome to TW Tucker. I did the foglight anytime mod but need to source light bulbs. Where did you purchase your interior and exterior light bulbs?

    Do you have any complaints from other drivers about headlight brightness? This is one of my major concerns living in NYC - lots of others share the road and I do not want to create a hazard.

    I got them from amazon from the link below. I believe the fog lights are 10000K because they are more blue than my 8000K HIDs. The led lights on the inside you can also get from amazon as well as the led strips under my truck and in the bed. My HIDs are very bright and sometimes people turn on there bright lights at me but quickly turn them off if I give them a shot of mine. haha:cool:

    Awesome! And I was thinking of that idea. Hooking up ground lights to the dome light. But also adding interior white lighting with the dome as well.

    Yes it works great and when you hit the unlock button they come on. Its not like go down the road with them on, FYI.

    Also here is a pic of my bed lights. They are on a switch when I let my tail gate down they turn on.

    Awesome! I want to do that all hooked up to the dome lights. Mainly just ground and interior. Idk how many times I've stepped in mud while getting in my truck because I couldn't see

    And obviously you know wiring. If I did all that, could I just hook it all up to the dome wire and ground the negative wires? Could the dome handle it? All LEDs

    Yes, the dome light can handle the load if the was any. The wires in the led strips are almost microscopic, almost makes me mad how small they are because it just makes it that much harder to wire.:(

    The bed lights are on there own circuit.

    looking good, I've had the same lights under some of my previous cars. " puddle lights " so you don't step in crap before you enter. Have been considering them on my truck as well. good job.

    Lots. Will do a write up shortly.
    How do the subs sound? I have the same box with 2 kickers and its not producing the sound I'd like. I have an alpine amp coming to push the subs harder but if I don't like that I might just get the subs you got.

    I have the box poly filled with makes them louder. I have an older memphis 1.1000 amp which produces a continues 1000 watts and a peak 1500 watts which is way to much for the those subs. The subs are rated for 300 watts RMS and 600 watts peak. I have them wired up for 1ohm so the hit really low for 10" subs. I still my factor deck and I can turn it to max and the subs sounds awesome, I would really recommend this set up.

    Good looking Taco. Do you have any pics of the switch that you used to turn on the bed lights? Also, Do you have lights on each side of the bed or only on the passenger side? Thanks
