Maybe the added engine weight? It's not like it's a big job to fix or anything, just something I noticed. Could also be the way its strapped onto the trailer.

Looking at the pic some more, I think it's just the picture. The top rear tire seems to be in line with the front. I'll check later just to be sure.

Those are the 1 piece eBay headlights that are getting pulled this weekend for the projectors I bought from Mike a while back.

Good catch lol

Btw I tried the LEDs and the headlights tonight. They look great! I thought they had high beams too? I couldn't get them to work. When I switch to highs, the lows just stay on.

Nice I like the demon eye look. For the highs you need to re pin the blue 9007 connector I will find the pic. I think the blue and red wire need to be switched.

Edit heres the pic, swap the pins and the solenoids will function.



Also the high beam solenoid wires need to plug into the harness

Happy with the output? How do they compare to the ebays?

I'll check that out this afternoon Mike. Thanks!

I did notice that there was only 1 of the blue connectors in the harness. It's on the drivers side. I don't have anything to plug into that connector on the passenger side. Is that how it's supposed to be? I'm new to these setups so it's probably going to take a few times for me to get this right.

The output for the low beams is great! Huge improvement over the eBay lights. I threw them in the trash can lol

Sounds good! Happy to help, all the power for the HIDs comes from the battery lead so the harness is just using one side input as a trigger. Grab some electrical tape and tape up the passenger side.

Good to hear the output is an improvement

Got it all fixed up this afternoon. I'll get some pics tonight. Thanks again Mike!

Also took a couple videos this afternoon trolling around the neighborhood. Stay tuned!

Took a couple videos while cruising around the neighborhood today. Had a few buddies stop by throughout the day and they all wanted rides lol. My fiancÚ tried to take one of me leaving the house and pulling back in from the driveway but they didn't turn out too well with all the wind we had today. We'll do a retake later.

Startup from inside and a good view of the gauges.



Slow cruising at around 20mph



Coming up to a stop sign then getting on it a little bit after going through the turn. That's my brother you can hear talking.

And that's with the hacked together exhaust. The full exhaust won't be run until I get everything else back together.

You've got to put an electronic dump valve right in front of the mufflers. Label the switch "loud mode"

I've had several people suggest I do that. It sounds more appealing every time.

Yeah, I already have a few to wire up with all of the lights I'm adding. Not sure what I'm going to do with the dump valve yet.

Next mod for me to tackle now that the truck is home... auxiliary lights. Here's the plan:

Lights under the rear bumper
Bed lights
Light bar over the windshield (no, I'm not drilling holes in the cab lol).
Rigid Duallys to replace the stock fog lights.

The first ones I'm working on are the lights under the rear bumper. I managed to get them mounted and started on the wiring before I ran out of daylight after work. I found some nice premade harnesses online that I'm going to use, but they're going to be a little short to run all the way to the back of the truck. No big deal to extend a few wires. They come complete with a relay, switch, and connectors.

I was also able to use 2 existing holes in the plate the spare tire was mounted on since the spare is long gone. I don't have power to them yet, but I can easily adjust them once I see where the light is going.

Here's what I have so far. Thoughts?
