Technically, front corner lights can be white -- but you must have an amber reflector there.

I have nothing amber (well, corner light bulbs are, but not the front turn signals), and so far no problems -- but you never know, lol.

Hey, your truck looks great and nice Herculiner job! Now SAS it and take it one more level, lol...I just want you to go through the pain the rest of us did.

But it's like the pain of childbirth -- at the end is something worthwhile.

Love your snorkel. That's probably the route I'm going -- homemade.

Ha ha! You don't have to tell me about spending too much on the truck. My current goal is "tougher" and part of the SAS was for that alone -- I broke or wore out too many stock front end parts.

No criticism, though. I like your truck. If you ever get out this way we'll take you to Wharton where the snorkel can be quite useful!

Consider, Greg, that my wife and I are both over 50 and she's a little thing. She says people look at her like, "What the...?" when they see her climb out of it or into it or even at lights, lol. She gets a kick out of that.

She didn't drive it for awhile after the SAS as the steering issues were too much, but she is again as it drives nice now. Mine has been beat so much it's not such a "baby" to me -- though it was at one time. I get a kick out of seeing my wife wheel off in it, lol.

Well, I'll be following your lead now with the snorkel. I just wonder when I'll find the time...

1. Finish making DOM tie rod with Chevy TRE's
2. DOM trackbar with 40,000 pound rated 3/4" shaft 5/8" hole heim.
3. Pull the front diff apart and redo the axle seals I screwed up (one is leaking)
4. Remove and rebuild transmission, then reinstall.
5. Mount transfer case and new rear drivehaft
6. Test fit and modify as necessary the front driveshaft.
7. Shake down any problems.

THEN I'm ready to offroad again, lol. I want to do all this within the next month -- gonna' be a sprint for sure with everything else I've got going on.

But, at least it's an ENDLESS hobby, lol -- always something to do or fix.

Just the regular old Borg Warner 1354. Electric at that. They really aren't that weak and plenty strong behind my little 3.0, lol. Stock fitment saves me some additional work I don't have time and money for. A buddy of mine (Earl -- CrazzyEarl here on the board) gave me two 1354's.

Greg...do you mind me asking what something like that costs?? I don't plan on doing the inside of the bed. I really like the exterior stuff.

hey guys sorry about not getting back to yall sooner i work on and ambulance in Nashville, TN and I just had three back to back runs
Good Transfer Case

I love to be different and yes I will be the UV Protector


I did the entire bed and the nody line down for about $150 Bucks after broom pole to reach into the bed with the roller $10, herculiner kit $90, extra scotch pad $4, another small can of herculiner $30, tape $6 (BLUE), Pack of smokes and two mountian dews $10
I love it one of the best mods you can do to your truck, trust me take your time and make sure that you have a good clean surface and use the scotch pads and it probably would not hurt use sand paper but I didn't myself and I cant remember how much the UV Protectant is but I would invest in it too. Good luck cant wait to see you truck with it Shane it will look really good with your color truck remember taping and prep is everything

I have Herculiner on my rock sliders -- though trail abuse has peeled it off the bottom. I'm just going to hit the bottom with some black paint.

It makes a good traction surface for stepping on.

That's a great price. Tom Barcia (a former Ranger guy now a Jeep guy) who's in the area made mine. They're 1/8" wall square tube and bolt to the frame. They can support the weight of the truck. There are 3 supports going from the slider to the frame and they go wheel-well to wheel-well.

You'll love having them. They prevent all kinds of damage. I would not have the dents I have in the side of my truck if I had them on recently. I'd taken them off to make work room doing the SAS and didn't get around to bolting them back on (lazy). I sidehilled and slid down into a tree. I would have been on the slider if it'd been on that side. Oh well...
