Not exactly what you're after, however you could swap out the voltmeter with a 110 volt and go from there. Very little fab required.

Also, cheap!

Archoil 9100 and 6200 should be arriving today.

Had a loose bolt/stipped bolt after I replaced the thermostat from the Mishimoto to an OEM. The dealers in my area didn't have the bolts, so I ran by Fastenal and no more leaking thermostat housing for me.

Next is brake calipers, trans flush, and a turbo upgrade, but got a house and bills to pay.

I have two that have gone bad already (less than a year), and the only shinning light is that they are under warranty. What is even more frustrating, is that each light is a full assembly, so each one that goes bad, the whole thing has to come off, be unplugged from the harness and then a new one hooked up and bolted in place. there is no simple lightbulb replacement with their product. The design is utter crap!

In my opinion, everyone stay away from their stuff! I think I will be saving up to buy OEM cab lights and eventually switching them all out.
WTH Dave!!! I purchased a set of recon's for my H2 based on how happy you were with yours. ... I can agree they are a pc of chit, mine were leaking badly and I had use tons RTV. The quality is crap also, don't spend too much on the new home I'm sending you the bill

Oh, I love the look, but with two giving up the ghost in the past few weeks, I am through with the company and will never buy their crap again. I will have non functioning ones replaced, they are under warranty after all, but as soon as I can afford to, they will be getting replaced.

What sucks, is that they used to be made in the good ole US of A and their reputation was great, now they are just China crap.

You are of course correct.
At this point comes the big 31row cooler of the 6.0 Diesel in the game......and maybe the shortened shift timings due the JW valve body.

Or not?
Yes it would. But for the same reason when you stop driving like that it will take longer to cool back to it's normal temperature because it takes longer for the extra 8 quarts to cool. So what have you gained? A lower temperature spike, but not a lower average temperature. Is that worth the money for the pan and extra fluid? Not to me it isn't.

I like that two tone bumper look you have there Dave, the tan pads really set them off!
Thanks!

I used a satin black. Krylon in a rattle can. Lmao. Some new stuff they got. It's called Maxx or something like that. Says no need to prime or sand. But I did both anyways.

Looks like I'm off to pick up an '07 clip on Sunday. The bumper pad is currently Toreador Red. Is it easy enough to sand it down and repaint with a rattle can and some clearcoat? Especially since i'm just doing the Ebony black of my Ex?

You didn't address my refund lol
My H2 came with some China garbage on it to begin with, so since I've had the tinted side lights from recon on the Ex. (No problems at all with those) I figured I'd be better off with a set for my H2, Wrong! The quality just isn't there anymore. Since I will be selling CTC (Chitty Tin Can) soon I decided not to look for the OEM replacement. I will never buy that brand again.

You went back to OEM?
