Looks good. I agree with Marv on the vise.

the vise was free and the hole was in the bumper for the vise bolt hold down so that is why it is there. i have a 7 pin on my truck now, but it was attached to the part of the bumper that i cut off so i need to find a new place for it right now it is just hanging down.....and i did use the vise today to grind the paint off the reciver tube, the bumper pulls out 3 feet for a cab over camper so we pulled it out and it made it very esay to work on, the bumper is welded mostly on and is a pain to pull out and put back in not worth it...

I think that flat black really makes the back end look a lot better.

Still didn't get your HV plates? They sure take their own sweet time.

Care to send it my way? 74 F-250 crew cab 4wd if that changes anything.

Oh and Brady - that setup looks good! I do really like the black bumper compared to the silver too.

There are six-pin and seven-pin diagrams on this site:
Trailer Wiring Diagrams

Use the seven-pin one for standardization with all pickup trucks sold in the last ten years or so.

At a minimum, wire the right-turn, left-turn, tail-lights, and ground.

The auxiliary is sometimes used for backup lights.

The +12 volt wire is used to charge a trailer's on-board battery to apply the brakes in case of a break-away. Small trailers without brakes obviously don't use this feature.

The brakes wire is from a trailer brake controller to apply electric brakes (if used).

If I'm free tomorrow I'm going to add an inline fuel filter, replace the fuel bowl filter and run some stanadyne.

i need to put a fuel filter before my electric pump, right now there is only one by the carb, and nothing before the pump. and i "run out of gas" a good amount, i run both tanks and that is how i know i need to switch tanks.

Not much done to truck since last year when I did the front bumper cover. I have the parts to fully shave the tailgate but right now money is tight.

CA and UT are two of them.. I travel out to those the most.. That's what makes it fun.. It's not like there's a pair of .50 cals on the front.. Or is there?
