    Prepaint was still @Mobtown Offroad. I used diy bedliner to paint it. Here's the most current pic of it w/ fog lights I installed few weeks ago. Idk if you saw that or not?

    DIY. Afaik they don't make a kit for pre 2012.
    I bought some 9w leds:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/20X-White-M...e-Running-DRL-Backup-Lights-12V/281987848429?
    and some replacement filler pieces:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01483LFK8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    and paint & clear coat:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00407RRTG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    and im planning to use this switch:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01EL9TKGA/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_6?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A36ZH2MCHPKXUA

    It's a work in progress. The lights have a long threaded body which prevents the panel from being installed against the headlight. I need to trim them down w/out damaging the wire in the center, then I should be able to move on. It probably would have fit if i'd installed the lights along the bottom of the filler piece, but I like the look of it following the curve. I'll update later when I get it figured out. Should be super bright, switched so not on all the time.
    If it doesn't work out or I don't like it, I still have the factory filler pieces, and im out $90 minus whatever I sell them for.

    Do it! Just study for a bit each week, taking practice tests.

    That's pretty cool! Love projects like that. Hopefully it all works out.

    hey @EatSleepTacos you have too much weight on your cap. Not sure if you will be able to hold it long term

    Relocated my scanguage as I wanted a cleaner looking install, and also stapled that plastic @LC7 recommended. It made a minor difference, but for $8 it's worth it. I'm sure it could be better if I placed the strips better, but if I'm going to spend more money on it I'll just buy some slides.

    :facepalm: I'm onto you David. As much as I like the windoors, I'll just be too damn high. I wish contractor caps were cab height, or better yet, mid height like we talked about while ago.
