I wonder what the difference is with 2010+ trucks.

Where did you have to go to find one?

billby or bully racing. not bully dog though. 5614175555 nick. one company said sure we can do it, but after I got my computer number, no dice. that's when I got in touch with Nick. but it's like ever thing else, body lift is for a2010 edge, suspension 2009 fx4 header and wires are for a 05. lots of leg work to piece this mutt together. my hidden winch mount bolted flush to frame on my 07 and then on my 08. I had to make spacer plate to fit this one. Like my pop's always says, " no step for a stepper"

That's freakin awesome. such a good investment. I need to get on this too, 33's on a DD suck *** when you drive 200+ miles a week lol. It doesn't bother me enough to want smaller tires but enough to want a tuner.

So you said the shift points are a lot better now? I don't like how mine revs a bit higher with the tires on. Also my transmission is likely to be on it's way out but i like the sound of improved shift points a ton.

I had some Contact with Fred right up front, but like you said Justin. He just kind of drops off.

I sent him my PCM code with a few questions about what exactly he tunes, but i haven't heard back yet.

So I'm halfway through on my LED swap. I'm going from blue to white. I have the bezel done and I have mixed feelings. What do you guys think so far? I like the OEM feel of white, but I still liked the blue, I just felt it was a bit ricer.



I wish I could get white **** inserts. Blue will have to do. EDIT: Just realized the **** inserts can be removed. I'll sand the color off and bam, I got clear *****

Also, I do realize that it has hot spots, I may have to go with an LED strip around the whole thing down the road

Got the gauges in. The iPhone makes the hotspots look worse. It's more even than my blue ones were

It's a lot brighter than stock bulbs. Even if you just left te green it will make a big difference.

The turn signals are switchback LEDs from VLED
