    Pulled my LED tail lights out (which are for sale by the way) and installed "normal" tail lights.

    First thing I did when I bought my truck was to remove the crap aftermarket blades and install OEM blades. I didn't get the sightline blades. I got the original(?) blades where you can change out the rubber itself.

    I guess that “must find a balance” thing might apply.

    My truck came with those (skeleton style frame) and they worked very well except during winter. They got jambed up with snow & ice. I switched to the solid style blade that first winter and have been using the Sightlines for 6 years. Couldn't be happier with them.

    I could see where that would be an issue living here in CT.
    The last two winters here I didn't experience it but it can happen.

    Wasn’t today but I mounted my smittybilt air compressor in my engine bay. I drilled 3 holes in the plate that holds the compressor and I used the factory 3 studs coming out in that corner area and used spacers to keep it leveled and tightened it down with lock washers and Nuts. Holds good, sturdy and nothing is getting lose after long daily drives.

    I need to find a hook to wrap the compressor hose around and hold it down instead of it laying there though.

    Edit: Excuse the dirty engine bay, I need to give it a good cleaning.

    Eastwood makes the kit.

    so after playing with it, I took a couple of before and after below. 7/10 rating. Would buy again.

    Pros: works great on round dings.
    Very affordable
    User friendly

    Cons:Don’t have it perfected on the oblonged/trail scar dents yet. I’m sure it will work great just didn’t get it figured out in my first swipe at it today.
    Alcohol doesn’t work as well as let on to get the glue off. Switched to a goo b gone/alcohol one-two combo and achieved the desired result.

    I thought about going this route recently. One of my little LED's on my driver side rear is slowly going out. It works sometimes and other times not.
    Both your LED lights still working good?
