    I ordered some plate lights for the truck: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CXNPRNW?ie=UTF8

    Looks like I'll have to cut the wire every time I change the plate, so I'm just going to use butt connectors into the stock plate light wires.

    Also got some skinnier wheel spacers. I need to order some cheapo DOT approved fogs and then I'll give it a shot. Bumper height is the only remaining concern there I think, maybe the lack of swaybar.

    I feel like an idiot. The front end of the truck has been clunking around pretty good. I assumed it needed a rack after listening to it. Come to find out there were a couple of skid plate bolts i never installed

    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    Winch question. Synthetic vs steel cable. I know synthetic is lighter, but you have to watch rubbing on rocks and such. Stell needs to be cleaned and lubed every so often. Beside wieght, is there are major difference? Looking to get one soon and maybe get the bumper on this weekend.

    And start prepping the sliders that should arrive tomorrow.

    If the cable snaps for whatever reason, I'd rather get hit in the face with a synthetic cable rather than a steel cable

    Those lights suck, I burned through a few before buying these. Strong for over a year. Same concept but must be different due to two leds vs one. And when I say they suck, I mean they lasted a day.

    https://www.superbrightleds.com/mor...late-bolt-stud-mount-pigtail-connection/1685/

    Safety, weight, and easier to handle on the trail. No need for leather gloves when handling the line.

    Good to know thanks! I've gone years without plate lights, so if these fail I don't mind. I bought two pairs just in case haha

    I'll likely upgrade to the nicer ones you linked at some point though. It looks like they suffer from the same problem though, what kind of connector could you use that would fit through the bolt hole? Otherwise you have to cut the cable to swap plates haha

    I just hardwired it straight to my lights, no connector. I don't anticipate having to undo them anytime soon. You could use these though. They screw to make the connection, not crimp, so you could just unscrew one end and slip the wire out. They're fantastic connectors.

    Just ordered a leaf pack from Deaver. They didn't ask for a deposit; so two of the three orders I've made this week (ADS, Archive, Deaver) haven't asked for a credit card. The demand is such that if someone bails on an order they know they can sell them the next day.

    In case anyone is wondering on lead times:
    ADS: 10-15 weeks
    Archive: 30 days for most stuff but 60 days for shackles (Eric said there will be a price increase coming in a month or two)
    Deaver: 4-6 weeks

    Next up, for the fourth day of Christmas, UCAs.

    Those looks awesome, I'll order a handful! Might have to stagger the length of the cables or something, but that's simple enough. Noice.

    Thanks man!
