Thanks and I agree that they did make a huge improvement. I am going to get the same headlights that Russ has along with the OE Harley tail lights to finish up the exterior mods. I am debating on whether I want to Plasti-dip the running boards black or leave them chrome. I am leaning towards leaving them because I have no intention of replacing the badges that have chrome on them.

BTW, your Fusion looks much better with the powder coated wheels

Well I took the Beast in for PA state Inspection this morning, and while I was there I figured I'd have them go ahead and test the battery too. The truck is years old and I'm still on the original so I knew it had to be time to start keeping an eye on that. Good thing I did. They showed me the slip of paper that the tester prints out; of the original 750 cold-crank amps I was down to 169cca. He was surprised it was still starting! The truck never missed a beat though! So he put me in contact with his wholesaler and I bought a new Interstate battery directly from him and installed it myself at home for $90. Basically saved about 50% over walking into Advance or Pep Boys and buying the same battery. I'll drop the old one off at the shop on Monday after work to be recycled and that saves me the core charge. I'm happy!

I'm still on the factory battery in my 2011. It still tests good for now...
