All LED lighting. The only incandesant lights in the truck are in the dash.

Tried to put my hitch on. 9/16" bolts+1/2" holes=StreetScene FTL!

Got the flip down plate mount on though.

Oh, yeah, tried to install overload air bags as well. Ranger bag kit doesn't work with Expo rear setup. If I can't figure out how to make it work, I may have an Overload Air Lift setup for sale soon.

Out of curiosity, has anybody with an '04 or newer found the electronic flasher to fix my hyperflash? I have a 5 pin flasher, and all I could find, even with going to the books, was 2, 3 and 4 pin EP flashers. All the 5 pin flashers I found were fixed load.

Raised my exhaust, finally replaced the old plastic bedliner piece that goes on the tailgate with the one that came with my current bedliner. and gave the truck a quick hand wash.

If you have LED's, it's the EP27.

Got tired of the white letters, so I turned the blackwalls out. Also "static" balanced the wheels so no weights would show.
