Wonderful pictures for sure

I like how Alaska has the big rocky mountains, lush green and water all in one place.

oh yes we have just about every kind of landscape you could ask for scattered all over the state. i'm born and raised here so i'm used to it but whenever i meet anyone from down south visiting they are just amazed by the land.

after getting her so dirty yesterday i had to give her a good bath. also washed up my excursion since its dirty from driving to work in the rain. i also painted the rusted trailer hitch since it looked bad hanging down there all rusty.

first mod today! my buddy with another '98 expy which is almost identical option wise. he put new LED headlights/corners in black on his truck. so for me helping him w/his wiring he gave me his old chrome LED corners. i also just ordered lightning style headlights for her so i'll install those once they come in.

the LED corners

Tell me, do you notice an improvement from the clear headlights over the stock? I'm pretty sure its an obvious answer but I just wanted to ask. Secondly, where did you get the clear headlights and hows the quality?

yes the output is much better in my opinion even with stock bulbs.

i got the headlights on ebay for $117 shipped(ofcourse they killed me on shipping to AK) i can find a link if you need. so far they seem to be well built. no water inside them and actualy they looked and felt pretty damn good for the price. i'll keep an update on that later on if i have any issues.

sorry i need to grab that link! i'll find one tonight.


i got my 8000K bi-xeon HIDs in the mail. along with my 12,000K single beam foglight kit. i'm saving up for those diamond foglights but in the meantime stockers will do.

got them all aimed up but have not been able to try them out in the dark yet because it doesnt get dark untill 11pm or alittle later and i'm allready in bed by then.

I really like the brightness[from what the pics show] Are they strictly clear white? I dont have an experience with HID,s.
