Amazing how much "cleaner" the lights look, now. Cool!

Your stock ones were shot, hazed over pretty bad, do the headlamps improve the beam at night, a friend was wanting to get some for his moms truck?

torkum is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Looks great Chris! I got a project or two waiting on me, billet pedals to install that I bought last Fall and a 2" level kit that I bought last Summer. Every time I say I'm gonna put all that on I work on something else. Yesterday between running around I replaced a squeaking door bushing on the truck that was driving me crazy every time someone got in and out the back door.
Think todays project will be giving the inside of the truck a good cleaning

yeah but what can ya say. the headlamps were from 92 and 304k miles on them. and yeah they do improve the lighting. they shoot out way further but there are spots that are brighter than others so if someone is real sensitive to something like that they probably wont like it. in fact they are so bright i got several lights flashed at me last night but i have them aimed bout as close as they can be to perfect but they are just so darn bright.

I had mine washed today $20, ouch, but it needed it bad, I'd love to run my claybar over it, but appears the weather is going back again.
Hey, for fun, I drilled a tiny hole in the top of my headlamp housing and glued in a blue LED, you should try it, very discrete, and hooked to a hazard flasher, instant wigwag.

The lights look great nflfreak43! That's a huge improvement. It's nice to see a cosmetic upgrade that is also a functional upgrade. I just got done installing three LED dome lights in my truck from V-LEDS.COM High Power Automotive LED Replacment Bulbs, V-HID Headlight Kits and love the outcome. Mine is only a cosmetic upgrade though. Anyone looking for excellent quality LEDs should check them out.

Hey Mark, I've been wanting to do a clay-bar treatment on mine too. If the weather doesn't improve soon, I may have to get some new shop lights and do it in the garage.

Let me know if you need help with the leveling kit Tim. I know we haven't met yet, but I really am trying to make it to the next GTG.

On a side note, my rolling floor jack died, and I am looking for a cheap replacement. I would love to find one at a pawn shop to save a few bucks.

I see two of them on the Harbor Freight website that are both $99.99.

I got one of mine from HF also. Works better than the expensive Craftsman one I have.
