    I'd give this video a watch to get an idea. Some of the steps don't apply to us. I used an old credit card instead of a spatula to stuff the fabric. I also couldn't find a way to remove the clip in the pic holding my slifer so i had to start there when wrapping.

    Remove the existing fabric carefully though, you can use it as a template for the new material.

    What color and size FN fx Pro wheels did you get? I ordered a set of matte black 16” earlier this week and am driving up to meet Dustin and pick ‘em up in Corona next week.

    I got these with a coupon also. Charged it and kept it in my truck. I needed it later that week to jump start my daughter’s car on the side of the road. Due to heavy traffic and where she was parked, I was sure glad I had this with me. Saved both our a$$es!

    I’ve said this before but whenever you are working on bed bolts, whether it’s for the rail or floor of the bed, ALWAYS break the bolts by hand first and then use your impact gun. Same goes for tightening. Impact gun then hand tighten to avoid stripping. I know it’s a moot point in this case but I thought it’s worth mentioning again for those who have future projects to keep in mind. Let us know how you end up getting that bolt off. It’ll be good to know in the future in case I don’t take my own advice because I’m in a rush (has happened before). You’re not alone lol

    Yeah I'm aware of their intended use.
    How often do you think people find themselves driving in fog heavy enough that these are needed?

    We see people that drive with these types of auxiliary fog/driving lights on at all times cuz they look cool, and I agree they do! But all they're doing is blinding the poor bastard (me) going the other way.


    I'm not knocking the lights just how some people use them.
    The DD SS3's are super nice & I'm seriously considering a set for my truck! Sure would be nice to be the blinder instead of the blindee for a change.

    I went with 17" bronze wheels. I know the bronze isn't everyone's cup of tea but I wanted a little contrast since my truck is MGM and everything else is blacked out.

    Dang...picking them up is the way to go. My wheels might be to me by Christmas. :santa: :rofl:

    Amazon has it for $99 under their Cyber Monday deals. A few models of this brand are on sale. I'm going to get the 2000A one.

    Take it to a weld shop and let them weld a 2 ft bar to the top of the stripped bolt, only let the add a little weld at a time and douse with water so as not to melt bed, only use it as a last result. You can use a easy out first but if and when it breaks, welding well get it out. Instead of grinding a screwdriver slot, try grinding 2 opposing flats and use a cresent wrench or small pipe wrench to extract bolt.

    Then get the SS3 Sports. It's what I have and I drive around all the time with them on because they look cool. I've never been flashed by an oncoming driver. The sports are plenty bright enough, and also much cheaper. You can enjoy them without blinding other drivers, just make sure to aim them correctly.

    Since I'm still running on the original battery I decided to pick one up. Better than wishing I hada.

    Silly question but did your jack stands come with those covers or did you improvise with something?

    i would go ahead and get the DD SS3’s while they’re on sale. They light up the night and enhance the view.
    In my experience, I rarely get “flashed” by oncoming drivers. I took the time to read my state laws and adjust my SS3’s accordingly. A properly adjusted light shouldn’t be shining into oncoming drivers eyes.
