    LED conversion on every accessible bulb, TRD exhaust (dealership threw in for free along with the Blu-Logic).
    My Dodge Ram 5.9 was costing me $500+ a month in gas let alone all the nickel and dime repairs to a 100K + mileage truck so I bought "Taco".

    The night I brought her home, the next morning I peeled the TRD stickers.

    Exhaust was free, as I had bought a tC from the same dealership.

    Soldered together my own LED dome light.

    Oznium switch that bypasses the stock fog light wiring allowing them to be on anytime the key is in the "run" position.

    Love getting OBDII info from this.

    Used to be in my '64 Notchback. Billet aluminum handle.

    Changed rear turns to red LEDs.

    Front corner lamps are white LEDs.

    Future mods include:
    Front push-bar brush guard for headlights.
    Floodlights like the ones seen in Transformers 2 on the HumVee's.
    4 pin trailer wiring and illuminated Harley Davidson hitch receiver cover.
    Aftermarket stereo and speakers.

    I can contribute some electrical knowledge and mechanical to the forums. I will try to be as active as possible in the forums, work schedule permitting of course.

    I just was notified by CA DMV that they are denying my Personalized plates. They say that "ELTACOS" will offend people in California. Funny since there is already a "Taco", "ELTACO", "THETACO", etc in existence. I figure I am known as "Eltaco" on MW2, EQ, WOW and multiple forums. I can't wait to retire and leave CA, as a state employee I will be taking my pension to the midwest.
