Finally after 6 months of owning this truck I was able to get something done to it.
I found a pair of KC lights on craigslist for 60 buck. Me and a buddy were able to get them installed this weekend finally. I mounted them behind the grill to keep the clean look on the outside of the truck. I attached 4 pictures of the switch, and the lights let me know what you guys think.
Picture 1 and 2: That is the crossbar that runs in front of the radiator. There is one light mounted on each side of the horn. There was a square hole in the top of the crossbar on each side of the horn. I just drilled through the bottom of the bar and drilled out the top hole to be able to fit a 3/4 socket into the hole
Picture 3 and 5: That would be the rocker switch mounted to the left of the steering wheel. The red light indicates that the lights are on.
Picture 4: This would be the lights on with the high beams on.
Next modification is going to be a 2 inch CST Leveling kit to help off set the 4 inch rake. Then upgrade to 33 inch tires. If anyone has any suggestions for a leveling kit I am all ears. Please keep in that is not the 4x4 is is only 2wd.
very nice looking, and pretty good place to mount the lights to keep the body clean looking.
How easy was it to do this mod and how's the difference with those on at night with them being higher on the truck?
It took me and my buddy probably about an hour to do. The most difficult thing to do was getting the holes drilled out big enough for the socket to go in. the wiring was pretty basic. We just ran the wires through the hole that is already in the firewall that the gear shift cable comes through. Overall if you have a little bit of electrical knowledge it is pretty easy.
Cool I have been looking at adding some extra lights on the front and hadn't really thought about putting behind the grille. I really don't mess electrical stuff but my supervisor is really good with electrical stuff and would help me with it.
How big of a difference is there with those lights on compared to regular lights on and high beams if that makes sense?
I use my head lights with fog lights and don't hardly use my high beams because they aren't as good.
ya with the bulbs I have in my headlights now, there is not really a whole lot of difference to the low and high's. More than anything the highs project about the same amount of light, but they just project it further out. Give me a little bit , Im working right now when it slows down I will post a picture of the light spread with and without the lights on.
