How bout some pics with showing the markers lit up and stuff? Cuz to me that part painted is uselsss. The reason its chrome is for reflection to project forward and outward. Painting that only makes it not shine forward. So lets see some pics of that lit up.

Other than that, the truck looks good. The superlift is cake to install. Seriously. If you know nothing at all about mechanics and followed the diretions you could do it in a weekend. 3 of us guys did Shane's in about 5-6 hours.

I did my corners with nightshade and clearcoat but went a little crazy on the nightshade and the amber light is more now of a reddish glow.. I was a little concerned about tickets for it at first, but cops dont look twice at it, even when i got pulled over one day.

LEDs FTW, I'll get pics tonight. I'm going to wait till my Bronco is reliable again, plus it be easier to use the lift at school.

$55 for the pair man... Plus shipping. So $110 for the order plus shipping...

I'd do those bulbs as well as some 194 that are bi-polar too wired to the blinker... So both marker and corner blink the same color on that side when triggered... :-)

Damn havent thought of or seen the 194's! Autolumination has the 20 LED switch backs for $20.99 ea + shipping. However V-leds has the 60 LED's and they have "type 1" that alternate white and amber apon turning. BoRat "vary nice"..

Top two LED companies are V-LEDs and SuperbrightLEDs. I ordered all of mine from SBLEDs though. Get those and get pics.
