At least they use CREE LEDs and have a lifetime warranty. They seem to be a middle of the road led. I like the 1.5" height to fit in my tight space.

That's the only pic of one bigger than 10" in the single row, I'll snap some when they come in. I don't believe they do, but size and design seem to match BD

Came in today. They seem well built but only time will tell. They weigh a little over 5 lbs a piece

Thanks. I'm really liking it so far and don't miss the power wagon yet. I still have one locker with the KR so I didn't go cold turkey.

Getting the bed rhino lined and a new replacement fuel tank on Monday. 50 gallons is going to be nice compared to 26. Like so

very nice! you will love that larger tank, seems like a lot of people go that route any more. Why not? I hate filling up because it takes so much dang time.

I think my dual tank 7.3 is almost 40 gallons.

It sucks because they seem to be pretty cautious with their miles to empty. I guess they really don't want people running out but after you use 19-20 gallons it is telling you that you are almost empty. Then when I'm pulling a 250 mile trip it sucks having to fill up again after 220 miles.

Yes it came with a rear locker, that I can use at anytime which is nice. You had to be in 4 low to use any on the power wagon.

I just did an EGR delete, oil cooler, and STC fitting on my 6.0. It was a lot of fun!


Anyway, I wouldn't mind having a tank that size. I guess it just stings less to fill the smaller tank lol.

i think i would rather have a big sting less often than a small sting more often. I not one of those that just stops and only puts 20 bucks in. I fill it all the way up.

I want to fill up and be able to go 600+ miles but at the same time I need my full size toolbox in the bed. I feel like they put a ranger fuel tank in these things.

I've heard peopling doing the egr delete and all on these 6.7s and really improving fuel mileage. I've heard up to 10 mpg but you know how those stories are. I'm not voiding the warranty but that's what I heard.

Me too, I can't get motivated to work on the ranger. I've had a supercharger and manual tcase just sitting around forever. I used to get on stuff the minute it came in.

I think it comes with old age because i am the same way. I have boxes of stuff just sitting around I just quit buying stuff so i dont have to.

I dont think I could void the warranty on a 50K truck either. At least not at first.

Fuel tank is in. Need to get it reprogrammed tomorrow cause it is staying on 3/4 full. Got it rhino lined and had them go ahead and install this little guy. B&W hidden gooseneck hitch. Now I have to put my toolbox and such back in.

Got the truck programmed for the bigger tank today but it was still only reading 63% full. I know with these you have to put the sending unit on top of the tank in almost exactly as it came out or it will bind the float inside. That is what is happening so now they are going to fix it tomorrow. Sucks but at least I don't have to do it.

My phone mount came in. I just had to order the truck mount. If anyone is looking for a good phone mount these are the best. Company is Pro Clips and they have mounts specifically for each vehicle and will show you the different options available for each. Then you order the specific phone type or even tablets. I had this one in my power wagon for a couple years and now transferred the phone mount over to my new truck mount.

It's hard to take a pic of your phone with your phone.
