What have you done to your truck

So we can show off the latest things we have added to or have fixed on our trucks.

I will start it off. I added these awhile ago. Need to repaint and modify the one bracket some.
The hole where I mounted the fog lights.


Nothing like watching paint dry


The wireless control box for the lights


The remote


And after they were installed


Also added a throttle body spacer.

The old one and the new one side by side


Installed on the truck


And before

Thanks Charlie. Im looking at maybe going with some different lights as well. Im looking at a set of led lights that might fit there. I just have to measure to make sure I have the room for them.

Was off today so I decided to take the plunge and upgrade my cloudy '00 headlights to the '05 Harley style.

Wasn't too hard to do and had all the materials ready to go (new headlights, pigtails to convert, screws/bolts, etc). I actually started on it last night but couldn't find the screws ..... and I was frustrated and cold LOL. that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Anyway, cut to the chase here are some pictures:

Drivers side all cut and ready to go:


and completed:


I really like the way they look and hopefully they will shed more light on the situation.

cheers,
Tim

Really looks good...I saw the "before". The "after" looks much better. Too bad you didn't include the "before" photo!

I did include the "before" picture right above the "after" picture. If you're trying to confuse me ---- it's working! :-)
