Looks good! Making tabs for the lights or do you have different plans?

BTW... what are you up to on Saturday morning? I'm going to be in Kitchener all morning waiting on the Mazda while it gets 3M film put on. I was thinking if you were around we could finally do the diff cover/dome light swap?

Sorry for the Delay on this update! Friday night I went to meet up with Ranger4.0 to install my new speakers, headunit and hella's but only got the speakers installed because the harness I got with the radio is a mess so Kyle is going to help me make a new more tidy one and the hella's I have to make some custom mountin brackets because of my Trans Cooler..

let me know when you get a new harness for the truck.

it wasnt so much that the harness was a mess... that i can deal with. a lot of connections were just twisted wire and electrical taped together. thats just asking for a fire and i was not going to put that in his truck... and i really dont understand the need for 4 connections in one wire? it was like that for half the harness!!! wires were cut off everywhere and just left hanging. it is easier to just start fresh and do the job right instead of trying to fix someone elses lazy half *** work

Out with the Old! In with the New!

The stock battery was leaking around the negative terminal so with my Birthday money I went and got a new one.

Nice!

I've started putting these on all my batteries:

Amazon.com: BATTERY TERMINAL PROTECTORS--CD/2: Automotive

Helps keep the terminals from getting a lot of crud on them

You just put them on the terminal under the terminal clamp thing. Helps keep the gunk from creeping up the terminals and spreading all over the battery like your stock one did.



Its just a piece of felt thats treated with a chemical to prevent corrison. Also helps easily spot the positive/negative wires for those that aren't very knowledgeable about cars.

$1.53 is a lot cheaper than having to replace the terminals in my opinion.
