I laughed hard on the gauge comments. "Holy crap" is what i said when i opened the door. You should try peeking over them. The previous ownes was 6'+ I'm guessing. They obstruct about an inch of the bottom of the windshield for me. I'm used to juding the edge of the road by a spot on the front of the hood in tight spots. Now I have to figure out which little gauge to look between.

I also thought about looking like an emergency vehicle of some sort so someone else had the same thought on that.

It was actually an option to get rotating lights that had color lenses on them if the light bar went on an emergency vehicle....

Better be careful doing that.

ACE ... I hope you didn't think my truck would intentionally impersonate an emergency vehicle

I posted some better quality pics of the truck with the lightbar sitting on the roll bar. Not wired up of course as you can tell by the giant cable hanging.

Took the pics with my camcorder. Will get more pics of the truck later with an actual digital camera.

I think the lights are "ok" but I like normal lighting. The draw on the alternator is my big concern though.

The yellow suspension doesn't bother me all that much. It is "yesterday" and out of style i admit though...hehe.
