    Hey Darrell, I just sent you a PM with all the details on the kit for your truck. Let me know if you have any questions or need anything else. Thanks!

    Hi Darrell,

    My name is Karl and I am the leader for the northern California chapter of FTE. I just approved your membership a few moments ago and want to welcome you.

    I see you have monster of a truck. How do you like the V10?

    Please feel free to introduce yourself to the chapter and telling us about your truck by posting in the forum. It is great to hear about members and their trucks.

    Once again - welcome,

    Thanks Jeff,
    I had a set of halogens I put on the Bronco I had and those got real hot. I had been concidering painting the black on the grill but now that I've seen how clean yours came out it's on my list. Probably while I got it out installing the lights. I'll probably use some kind of switch on mine. I'm an Industial Electrician so I have unlimited options on how to wire it.
    What brand of nerf bars do you have on Piggy? How do you like them? My wife says she needs a step to climb up into my truck.
    Nice write up. I really like how you mounted the lights to the metal insted of the plastic. I never liked mounting to plastic parts. I travel on a lot of unpaved roads or places that lack the term road so I need to make sure everything is shake proof.

    Hey Darrell,
    I haven't had any issues with the lights getting hot. The light housing itself is also plastic, so they don't generate much heat.
    I did paint my grille black inside. I didn't like the faded gray look. I just hit it with a light sanding, some lacquer thinner, let it dry and then rattle canned it with Krylon semi-flat black. That was over a year ago and I don't even have a rock chip yet.
    For the lights, I didn't use a switch. I simply wired them into my high beam circuit so they automatically come on with the high beams. Here's a link to my write up.
