    Just recommend.
    Watched a guy’s truck burn up years ago, fire extinguisher would have probably saved the day. Only been stuck once where I needed the shovel.
    They were the good old days at Ft. Fisher

    I went the long way about doing it. Have a small Dremel disc that has been worn down. Used that to go right up against that circle on the tab. Then checked fit with the pin and got it so the pin fits snugly into and out of it.

    I plan on doing this also. However... I am not sure what size pin I need. What size does the truck require?

    It’s pretty bright. If I remember correctly, 1,000 lumens. Not the brightest, but still a significant difference. I have that and the VLEDs license plate light. Between those two, I have a lot more light now.
    I drive in Chicago on I90, 294, 80 and 55 every night for UPS. The brake lights and turn signals on these trucks aren’t the most noticeable lights compared to other cars and trucks. For that reason I like the strobing brake light and also installed the stage 1 kit that changes the whole red light to a brake light and puts the turn signal in the reverse light area. Very noticeable now.

    It fits perfectly and there is no sloppiness or extra length like others I’ve tried.

    Thanks for that. I have a fairly long dark driveway and I'm looking for something to shine a bit of light. Already upgraded the reverse bulbs but need some light thrown a little further.

    Installed Diode Dynamics amber fog lights. I’m a little too excited about this.

    Just make sure you have them adjusted correctly and don't run them all the time like a lot of people do.

    I love mine.

    For sure! Instal went very quick, dialing them in took a bit. Got them pointed in the right direction.

    A pet peeve of mine are these guys who put in glaring, unfocused LED lights and blind oncoming drivers.

    With there being more foot traffic here, figuring I’d ask.

    Got a solar panel today. Any suggestions for mount with quick removal and install on the Prinsu?

    the collar on the shift knob was a pain in the butt to get back on. Came off easy as could be though.

    And the 6 switch panel + power outlet arrived. Mine only has 2 switches and a blank plus power outlet. Hopefully I can get it installed this weekend.

    could you take a picture of the backside of that switch panel, specifically where the cubby hole light is located? would like to change that light out with something else but not sure what all needs removed to get that light out and a new one in... thanks!

    Haven't had much of a chance to use it, but it sits nicely within the grill
