Here I will show you my upgrades and mods that I will do on my truck. I will include pictures and the progress of most of the mods/upgrades. I would also like to use this thread to ask questions and gain info. Now onto the modding!
04/16/2008 Upgrade: RECON White Lightning
A little dirty so I washed her first
And now the Install!!
Cleaned the surface some more and final prepped for mounting with an alcohol pad that comes with the kit. Now getting it all lined up. Used a tape measure to line up all mounting points. But the led's on the strip are not perfect so eyballing it to the center is all you can do. Before I mounted it for good. I held it up using some tape; then hooked up the wiring. I tested it out and realigned it to my liking. I then put some blue tape right above the mounting base's and made sure it was straight as I could get it. Drew a line to resemble where the mounting point is going to be. I did the inner to first and removed the tape. I lined it up with the tape measure first then after everything was all set i put her on! Then the same process for the outer mounting points. I removed the light bar and got some crape pieces of wood and pushed a little harder to get that bondage!
White wire is for the power to the reverse light. Popped off the drivers side brake lens and tapped into the black and pink wire.
What I love about this kit is that it's pretty much plug and play. I could have just Tapped into all the wires I needed to, but that's to hard!
I used the 4 pin trailer/brake light connector that I didn't know I had. Just plugged it right in!
After tucking all the wires up with zip-ties and getting it all done you have this as the final product!
With out Tailgate.
With Tailgate on. As you can see it's pretty much hidden. Unless your in a lowered Honda you can see it. But it looks good and clean.
Now some action shots. (HaHa at my reflection!)
Like I said before it was very easy to install. Now I know I wasn't going to expect it to produce much light at all, but the whole point for it is to act like a running lights in the rear. I may upgrade to some 06+ taillights and throw in some LED bulbs to kinda match the light bar when in reverse and not to mention the 06+ ones look sweet! Now that I notice my bumper looks a little f*#$!ed up. A little crooked maybe? O well maybe I was holding the camera all crooked!!
Now I just need to save up and get my lift going. Still not sure if I want to go with a Fabtech 5.5 Ultimate lift, but I'm leaning toward it more than anything else.
Also got a little early B-Day present for my self.
I need some dirt tires for it and register it so I can take it to Hollister Hill's It's a 125cc and can hold up to a 250lbs person, but I'm 200 so I have no worries.
