    Are those sill protectors from the same vendor or just the color inserts?

    I ordered one the other day, too - also ordered the red buttons. It's supposed to arrive tomorrow - and hopefully the replacement lower bulb unit I need for my Stage 1 Tail Light kit is with it.

    :cool:
    Whoa. Big stuff in order is right! Going full overland i see:thumbsup: those are the sliders I’d like to get as well or I’ve been looking at the Warfab armor guys stuff. I could pick up locally from him and I’ve heard his stuff is awesome.
    Why bare? Do you have a powder coat guy? And any suspension upgrades for the added weight? - not sure if they are even needed. No expert here by any means, I’ve just heard of guys doing it.
    And for sure on in and out!:cheers:

    Primary reason for the Caliraised sliders is the free pickup. I can get to Dallas in about 4-5 hours, so that would be easy enough. I'd probably get Mobtown otherwise. Bare because I'm just going to spraypaint them myself.
    I'll see how this load affects suspension before electing to do anything to it. I really like the stock Fox set up as it is.
    Basically just a barebones minimum set up and react as needed from there. Probably check out those springs from Eibach if I get front armor.

    Ok, Team AG, I need your collective wisdom. For the past 10 days I've been trying to put a MESO Stage 1 Total Tail Light kit in my truck. The installation is easy - takes minutes to pop out the old bulbs, replace them, add in the new harness and connect it to the old one. Here's my problem: Once installed hen I activate the right turn signal, everything works fine. When I activate the left, the left turn signal lights amber...and I get a low grade white flash from the lower bulb on the right.

    I've swapped sides, I've added the resistors, MESO sent me both a replacement harness and a new bulb. Nothing works.

    The only thing I can think of is that there is something in the original wiring of my truck that is causing it. But I know other people with 2020s have put the kit in their cars without issues.

    Any ideas?

    Somewhere on here there’s a discussion regarding raptor lights burning out daytime running lights. I can’t remember what the problem was exactly but it involved light frequency and an oscilloscope was used to determine the problem. Reading it was enough for me to decide not to monkey with the lights.

    Some people wire the Raptors into the DRLs directly. Most are on one of the headlight circuits and doesn't cause any issues.

    Would 2 tanks of gas or so be cheaper than paying to have them shipped?

    My list is pretty tame compared to some of you. Going to put in a diff breather mod, some screening to protect the rad from bugs, put on my boat rack, then get out and use the truck. This is why I bought a Pro, so I wouldn't have to do anything major before getting out and using it haha.

    That being said; sliders, skids, and bumpers are on the long term list. Still debating on whether or not I want to get a RTT... but that depends on what happens with this whole COVID thing and whether or Rec Sites will be open or not.

    Absolutely. Shipping is like $200. Even before the gas price drop I could do a tank for ~$35 on the high end.

    Check with the folks who hang out in the Lighting subforum?
    I had a pin on those lights for later, but now I'm a little dubious.

    Installed them on my 2019 Pro (no raptor lights) and they work like a charm. Absolutely no issues or hyper flash to report.

    Try disconnecting the raptor positive wire and see what happens. This way you can rule the aftermarket grill lighting out of the equation.

    Have you tried them without the resistors installed by chance? or by "I've added the resistors" did you mean you have been trying without them and tried it with them?

    I love how you say your done but then name 4 upgrades that are in the plans:rolleyes: For me it’ll be new tires and a bug shield and then maybe some matching tint. Then some sliders :thumbsup:
