    Got my strobe module in prep for my stealth emergency light install. This module will be wired into each of the turn signal bulbs, then the new meso mirror signals (the dual color ones) to give me a hidden plug and play strobe system. On and off will be controlled by a overhead switch that says "push to turn something on", then flash modes I will end up controlling with a momentary switch that matches the OEM switches.

    That will look cool but I think you will need to implement diodes so that the voltage does not feed back into the ECU.

    It does fit under the bed, I had to bend the tabs back with a BFH, these are 33s, but I really prefer it under the tonneau nice and secure. A buddy of mine actually had his shitty steel spare stolen right in his driveway from under his bed, lol. Granted I live in a better neighborhood but still.
    It's also much easier to get to if I need it. I've witnessed a situation where dude could not get the spare out from under the bed due to the way the bed was positioned after he got a flat. He had to drive it for a bit on the flat to be able to drop the spare.
    I actually have my roof rack set up for it as well, so I have 3 areas I can store it depending on my needs. If I need the bed, it goes on the rack. If I need the bed and the rack, it goes underneath. I like options.

    Yep, I got @Puppypunter building me some plug and play harnesses that I can put inline with the factory harness. Then I just plug in my strobe module to those harnesses and we are good to go.

    stockish for now
    Installed the truxedo X15 Pro yesterday and was going to do the led headlight bulbs but it turns out it has the OEM leds in there. I had ordered them the day I bought the truck but it hadn’t been delivered yet. So that’s a huge plus for me. Picked it up today from the tint shop this AM, now it’s 5% all the way around and a 50% entire front windshield. Super happy with the results

    This is what I just installed. They came in packaged really well and the color matched. I’m satisfied.

    Between yesterday and today, pulled off the chrome caps and painted them with Rust-Oleum Bed Coating. Turned out pretty good looking.

    I ordered the ecoological bumper shellz in the TPO textured black a couple weeks ago. They just shipped. Looks like delivery is scheduled on the 10th.

    I put those on my truck. They look great. Only thing I'd recommend for the install is some plastic no mar wedges. I used a screwdriver but had to be super careful.

    Did you hook the buttons up to any lights or anything? That would be freakin' sweet.

    Now that’s awesome! Looks like an Apache cyclic. I’m not sure if they used the same on Blackhawks, Hueys or other helos or I guess other aircraft.

    So after a few days there will be a problem with rubbing with bumps. Turned into a parking lot with a steep entrance from the street and got a crunch on the plastic. Off-road will be worse, so I'm definitely going to have to do some cutting. Front only.

    I am about to install a garmin mini, but I was concerned about how it would stick to the area with black dots. But now I read it is called frit, a baked on enamel or ceramic that helps bond the windshield glass to metal. So the mount should stick better? Does the bond seem secure?

    I was hesitant to put it on those as well, but still wanted it hidden behind the rearview. It seems secure enough for now but I guess time will tell! Fortunately the camera came with a couple of extra adhesive pads so I'm not too worried about it.
