    I mounted mine the exact same way! Figure if I need them on for loading shit into the bed, I can take the minute it takes to pop hood & flip the switch

    When you installed the puddle switch did it just turn on the puddle lights or did it turn on the footwell lights as well? I know they plug into the same spot so I was curious.

    Hood lights were a lot easier to do than the bed ones for sure. Not a huge hassle to run the cable through the hood and along the side of the bay.

    I started up at the top left corner and threaded it through the hole up by the hinge. You can kind of see it in the pictures. It was a little bit of a pain to thread through the lower opening but not to bad.

    No, just the puddle lights. I am going to put in a switch for the footwell lights. I would have hoped they would work in tandem with the overhead light switch, but do not.

    So many upgrades lately it's hard to keep track of where I posted them. More details in my build thread (link in sig) if anyone is interested, butttt...

    I swapped out the factory shackles for the BAMF Greasable HD Shackles to see if they helped the rear end shuddering at all (testing out a temp upgrade until I do the Hammers but didn't feel like spending that much more on suspension rn). The rear end feels more controlled and the leaf operation feels smoother, but it did not help much with going over wavy roads like I was hoping - it's still pretty choppy in that situation. Feels smoother offroad though so that's a win. All in all the upgrade is worth it for the price, but I was hoping for additional benefits on the road (after reading some other user reviews on them). These suck to install after the fact, so if you're planning on doing them, install them with the leaf packs.

    [​IMG]

    Added more Second Skin Damplifier Pro to the truck: full front floors (interior) under the carpets and to the exterior of the front splash shields. Huge reduction in road noise having both sides of the front flooring done.

    [​IMG]

    Also finally figured out that the annoying af sound I've been hearing in the rear is from those damn cabin pressure vents. Picked up some open cell foam (coarse and breathable) (link) to fill in the rear cabin vent areas to stop those goddamn flaps from flapping. I am relieved to say this finally seems to have fixed the problem. I can't stand the sound of those flaps - this is the third vehicle I've had to modify them on. It required a little more trimming after this to not push out the flaps excessively so they still perform, but here's how the basic design was for the insert:

    [​IMG]

    Last night I pulled the suspension off for the umteenth time to go back to ADS to have them completely retune them from the valving they currently have. Truck is still excessively stiff and I can't stand it. Hoping my proposed tuning changes get the truck to react and ride how I've been wanting it to. Truck is in hovercraft mode until then.

    [​IMG]

    With the wheels and shock reservoirs out it seemed like the best time to install the Ark splash shields that recently got delivered. If you hate the factory shields like I do then these are worth the price. Fitment was about 8.5/10 and I had to hog out some holes (and drill one new one in the truck) but that is expected with a vehicle that has been modified that you're doing additional mods to. All in all it looks much cleaner and the material these are made from feels much more stout than the factory ones.

    Before and after:

    You can wire your footwell lights to the cargo light wiring and use that as a switch ON / OFF / DOOR. I did that for mine

    I've had this kit for years. It's always either too hot or too cold or I'm too tired to do it!
