    got the LED reverse lights, one of the big reasons why i went with this setup...never saw the full benefits until i took the taillight covers off...just have to work on the complete set now :D

    I bought LED turn signals for the wife's 4 runner and got hyper flash. The next time I needed something from the site I picked up the reducers and soldered them in and now they flash perfectly. So I no longer fear switching to an LED turn signal.

    thanks bud...

    not perfect...i know where the imperfections lay, but for my first tinting it's not that bad


    i definitely like having full use of my reverse lights with this setup at least! those covers killed the output


    no i just have to keep my bedsides off any trees and/or rocks :D

    Yeah I don't know. I saw Mr. Grimm's advanced technique for getting a consistent line to cut but it might not need to be as much. Also to I am wondering if the same amount needs to be cut from the fender or if you cut less. Something I need to take a look at first.

    There are pics of the tool I made to trim the sheet metal in my build. My swampers are 36x12.5r16 on 7.5 wide rims the tread measures 9.6 mounted. So they are definitely skinnier than the 12.5 that interco says they are.

    yea i won't be going past 34 for now...

    i'll be going up 1.2" diameter and .5" total width

    so i will probably have to cut back the cab mounts and sliders a bit more, but as far as the flare and fender is concerned...i wonder if i can just cut back the top of the flare keeping the full length but making room up top for it to tuck in there...won't be as wide as the guys on 315s
