just a few cheap mods

just a few mods ive done over the last week or so, tweaked the torsion bars, fog lights, and tinted my tail lights. i also have a 12 inch rockford fosgate with a 500 watt amp. had a 1500 watt amp, but that went up in flames.







that pic doesnt do the tail lights justice ^

yep i used nite shade, picked it up for 13 bucks at pepboys. only used about half a can on the tail lights and bed light.

and i originally had two 12 inch rockford fosgates, but 119 dollar ticket later, i downsized to one.

once i get my camera working ill upload some better pictures, but for now im stuck with crappy cell pics.

The tails look fine to me. When I sprayed mine they looked completely black but once I got them on the truck they were perfect. The reverse lights still worked well enough and in the daylight you could still see the color of the tails so cops can't really give me problems. Any darker and you're gonna be blocking too much light.
