The draw on those is nothing, something like .07-.08A, so if you wanted to you could run a wire with a diode added from the truck's harness for the back up lights into your pigtails and they'll come on in reverse, but also on command by the switch. Or you could switch the wire from the backup lights, and run them as Off---on w/ backup---on manually.

Looks clean, great install

Put a new sat antenna on - wiped the old one off driving into the parkade at West Edmonton Mall last fall. One of the biggest malls in the world, and you can't drive a Superduty in to park. I was hanging out the window checking clearance driving out, lots of paint from the roofs of the lifted trucks. You come off the street, no warnings, no way out, cars piling up behind you..you are committed... Idiots.
Also put my glowshift guage pod in. Not real impressed, I can't pull the sun visor down without twisting everything around, button doesn't work on one of the guages, and since the truck reads most of the values, would have been nice to just plug in instead of tapping into the oil and cooling system. Haven't done that yet, anybody know where to tap in at and what size of metric/NPT adapter I need?

Changed the oil and filter, greased her up and topped everything off. Ran through all the xguages installed on the scangauge to verify things and programmed to 100 hp with the predator for springtime. Gee I forgot how good that feels! Gotta love leaving the tuner cars in your black cloud at the stoplight!

did my oil change today. also, installed my updated HFCM drain plug. she still runs great. over 100,000 miles. never a WIF light. never had to drain at all. no water in fuel when i removed old plug to put in the new updated plug. then again, i use chevron or texaco diesel and always a bottle of motorcraft cetane booster on ever fillup.

I installed a coolant filter after getting my truck back last week with new heads, ARP's, EGR delete, oil cooler, and tuned.

The amount of grit in that upper coolant hose that you have to spice into by the oil filter was unbelievable to me. For those without a coolant filter I highly recommend one. I can see how people are replacing coolers over and over.

For $120 and less than 10 min of work, its a good investment

Crap I missed again, I installed series 5000 air lift air bags yesterday. I would love to shake the hand of the guy that can do it in 2hrs start to finish. It was more like 4.5 for me, but I do triple check everything I do. And drilling 4 1/2inch holes in the frame with a dull bit was real fun. Also had to guess as to unloaded weight, got close to 1000 pounds in my bed I can't take out so I jack the frame off the suspension to get them installed. Now I got to install the compressor setup

Youll feel good now knowing its done but i dread the day i have to pay for all that (cause it will happen)
BTW...is your truck a "king ranch" w/HD headlamps ?
The grille looks good too, any close up pics of the front end ?
I would like the Harley headlights in mine since i have all aftermarket smoked led rear lamps, i think smoke blends well w/the Copper paint
