    Got better pics of the LED tails? Love that style if it's the style I think it is.

    They're pricey but worth it. Really cleans up the rear.

    Decided to add some little LED turn signal lights to the side of my bumper. After I had a close call with some dude being really "surprised" that I was merging over into a lane near him, I figured something needed to be done about the lack of a side facing turn signal. Easy enough to install. Just needed to pick up some stainless hardware (Phillips head bolts, lock nuts) to mount them to the bumper.

    Test fit some Better Bed Lights and got them mounted up. Very happy with them! Should help nicely with loading up my bike, checking things out back, reversing at night in pitch black areas, camping, and whatever else :)

    Those lights are awesome, was following your progress when you were testing them. I wish they were around back before I did my tool box lighting.

    Just curious, what type of toolbox is that? I'm looking for a black one myself- same size. I was looking at Weather Guard tool boxes, but just curious to know what you think about yours. I'd like to be able to keep my bags- all hunting equip. as this will NOT be my daily driver- dry in the back.

    Really love the color and the look.

    Thanks! That is a low profile, "deep" UWS toolbox. It stores my full craftsman tool set, another metal craftsman tool box with random tools, two tow straps, jumper cables, a mini shovel, bug spray, a bunch of stickers on the lid, and I'm sure some other things!
    I have beaten the crap out of it but it's still holding together after 8 years! The shiny black finish on top has faded, but I don't mind it. The hydraulic lifters still hold the lid up just fine also, though the lid no longer springs up like it used to.

    Finally installed a Uniden 520xl pro in my truck and ditched the cobra III. And I put it in a cleaner location.

    Probably gonna have to get a new coax cable though cause I kinked it near the antenna point when I was trying to get a tie down at the hook under the toolbox :mad:

    Thanks to @cynicalrider for info on getting the CB mounted here!

    Such a clean dip job... nice lookin truck. I'd love to paint mine eventually, something close to your color but a little more olive green in there maybe.

    Installed these back up lights today, they flicker like mad. But I can actually kinda see when I back up now. Need to pull the trailer harness and see what happens.

    IMG_9092.jpg

    EDIT: installed a relay and the flicker is gone. Dirty power coming from the reverse wire apparently, the lights flickered the same way my 1156 LEDs did before I installed the relay.

    A much needed accessory was added today. Blue sea fuse block with 6 circuits and ground bus.

    Really cleaned up everything. Thanks @Digiratus for the mounting idea!

    Before:
    IMG_9139.jpg

    After! Much better!
    IMG_9142.jpg

    I used 12ga wiring for a MAX of 55 amps for all of the max fuse ratings combined.. that thickness of wire should be fine. I flipped on everything and the wire was A-ok.

    HID headlights, front aux lights, rear Better Bed Lights, reverse LED aux lights, and front aux light switch.
