It's a good looking truck man. Pretty cool combo too. Lifted PSD, manual, reg. cab, and short bed. Not something you see everyday.

They don't like to sit... They don't like to just be put on a charger while they're dead either. Gotta put a surface charge on 'em by using a jump pack to start the truck. Drive it a little while. THEN put the charger on it.

You probably already know this, but use an automatic charger that'll charge the battery and automatically turn into a trickle charger when a full charge is detected.

Deltran Battery Tender Plus FTW.

I took delivery of some morimoto 3Five ballasts and Morimoto 3000k bulbs for my fog lights. So I have some PNP HIDs back in the fogs now. One day I will do a retro on my fog lights.

I also recieved a gently used super duty third brake light from the newer model. I have something up my sleeve for it and it involves lots of Philips Lumileds.

I gave her a good buffing today. Here's a pic of the hood with a test spot on it. What a huge difference. I'll grab full body shots tomorrow.

In an effort to not totally stray away from the thread content...


Today I looked at my truck. I also placed a coke can on the headache rack bed rail. The can is still there.

Let's see 'em then!! Twenty-five foot from a flat wall parked perpendicular on a level surface. NO CELL PHONE PICS ALLOWED

You must have gotten the magic set of junk 1 piece projector housings that's aren't complete garbage.

Sorry to say but I don't believe you one bit. Folks apparently don't take that kind of shot of those lamps because of their horrible performance. But I will give some credit : they're better than any plug-n-play drop-in HID setup in the blinding oncoming traffic department.
