    So I've compiled a big enough list of mods I decided to make a build page to share. No big lift yet & this is my daily driver so I've really just concentrated on making the truck better in the lighting dept & over all looks & functionality. I've included where I've bought some of these parts & part #'s to share if your interested in getting them. USR is UniqueStyleRacing that I got my Pro style headlights & tailights along with my new mirror lights & LED license plate lights. Great prices on these & are my favorite appearance mods . Here's the link to their 3rd gen parts...

    USR LED mirror lights with DRL's - I am very impressed with the light output of these over the factory lights & the DRL feature is just awesome!

    Here is an install video of the mirror lights. Installing the lights is an easy 5 minutes each side. Pop off the painted cover, 2 screws, 1 connector & pop the cover back on.

    On the DRL wiring make sure you reserve yourself enough time (probably 2hrs - 1 day depending on your skills) & take your time fishing the wiring through.

    I decided to do a front camera & chose the Car Solutions system. I am super impressed with the functionality & view I got with this setup both daytime & nighttime is great.

    I used this kit from Amazon

    Daytime

    Nighttime - In front of my garage with headlights off & outside light on. You can see through the windshield that it's really pretty dark out but looks good through the camera. Very impressive!

    For a lil more light I decided to make my nonfunctional hood scoop useful & got an inexpensive 11" LED light from eBay. After I ordered it I found out I could get a wireless remote with a receiver so I got that also. All in I spent around $50 but was super easy to install. The light is 80W & comes with battery +/- leads, an inline fuse & a 40A relay all in the harness. It does comes with a switch but I didn't use it.

    Here's where I got the light:

    I got the wireless remote harness from here:

    Added some 3M VHT tape to the bottom

    Hole drilled to route wiring through & put in a rubber grommet to help seal the hole

    Barely noticable!
    20190813_122147.jpg
    Almost could be used as a DRL

    Good amount of light output. This 11" bar has both spot & flood bowls
