Ok, so I decided that I'd make this thread for myself and anyone else who would like to track my progress in making my truck less stocky...I'll be listing things I plan on doing, taking many pictures, asking opinions, so on and so forth.
So far I've replaced the stock speakers with some Pioneer TS-G6842R speakers (got them on eBay..also had to mod them so I could use the plug from the stock speakers...warranty voided..lol), threw in my head unit from my first car (Pioneer DEH-4600MP), and threw my blue light in the window.

- Install Maglite & clips as well as fire extinguisher--COMPLETED
- Install & mod grill strobes--COMPLETED
- LED tail lights COMPLETED

Ok, so i washed it, removed the pin stripes, and decided to do my first flex ever. lol.
The tires (replaced rear)
Kinda hard to tell but there's LED lights in there...I probably should have taken a pic before I put em in...oh well.
Alas! the strobes are done...what a pain in the ***...ENJOY! (video last).
I used one of those fancy switches with the cap tht you flip up, then flick!
Strobes and blue light (thinking about getting a bar light next..this ones too short.
ok so here's the video...for some reason the camera made it look like the strobes weren't really...strobbie...but trust me they are, infact i got to test em out about an hour ago on my way to a dwelling call..BS, but fun lol.
(can't figure out how to embed the video)
Here's what I was able to accomplish today...not as much as I wanted to, but at least the strobe lights are mounted...can't use em yet...but hey, tomorrow is another day.
Ok the strobes are installed in the grill, kind of concealed...like a cop lol.
Ok so I took some interior pics after finishing up the maglite clip mod and the extinguisher mod...also snaped a shot of the Pioneer head unit, enjoy!
