they turned into a 4 AM venture with Shane.. involving lots of light mods, various light bulb switching, putting in a new speedo cluster, and general 'everything' involving trucks, lol...


Give me a bit, as I have a truckload of pictures, and a set of how-to pictures shane and i cooked up concerning speedo cluster and interchanging things.. including setting the speedo with a battery (works great, tested it on my rig after i did the cluster swap..



Edit: I think I'll hold off till tomorrow to get all these pictures resized and copied over to photobucket.. there are 170+, tons and tons to go through! lol

Not too shabby. to secure it even more I think I will pull a Shne and get some angle irion to block the front of it.. that way no one can get a clamp around them to spin em.


Ohh speakin of that.. any luck looking at getting those extended brackets made by the way shane? Need to be about 2 inches wide, roughly an 8 inch piece bent around 3/4ths in with a 2 inch pipe bend Should work perfect methinks.. looks sorta funny not being able to put them where they should be lol
