    dynomax super turbo muffler, aem pro dry s drop in, ebay crappy black headlights with HIDEXTRA 6000K Low beam HIDS, Bilstein 5100's in front, Northern tool black toolbox, Extang tool box tonneau, Debadged, Tinted windows all around, Lund ventvisors all around, AVS smoked tailight covers, Hella black magic 1000's mounted on a westin off road light bar
    new westin light bar and hella black magic 1000's

    Had trouble tightening lights to bar. No room for a wrench or socket

    what does the purple wire do with the lights. i wired to the battery everything works but the lighted switch is always on even with the truck off.

    anybody have any hella light covers they are getting rid of?


    thanks

    Sounds to me like your switch wire is hooked up directly to the battery so its always going to have power into it. I spliced my PIAA switch wire with one on the truck so it shuts off when the truck does.

    i got a set of covers that i wont use. U can have em. Im at work rite now and will be till the early morning. Ill take pics and post them to see if u want them. they are brand new and never been used but for some reason they were already kinda faded out of the box. The black lettering is what im talking about. If u still want them after you see the pics they are yours, just gotta figure shipping or pick up.


    wait im a shmuck and apparently cant read. Mine are 500ff covers. probly wont work. My bad dude.
