Yeah, 3B SPecialties also has a nice set of black LED tails that I want. Reasonably price as well.

Had a tool box. Took it off. I plan on removing these and trying to find some black diamond plate rail covers (?). I have a reg. diamond plate tailgate protector, but I want to go with black all around.

Can't wait to see what you've done.
Sorry I take late lunches. I had some issues getting the old out and the new in. I think that the previous owner might have bumped something with the bumper. The bumper on the passenger side sits a little higher than on the driver side. I had to remove the retaining clips from the rear housing and slip it in past the bumper and almost in place. Then I had to put the headlight housing in the correct spot and replace all the mounting bolts and retaining clips. I have bigger hands and this was not easy. That being said, I only got the passenger side headlight done at lunch. Here are some pics.




These new lights have a halo and (3) extra lights with extra wires that were not hooked up, so I had to splice them in. This is my splice job. I spliced them both into the projector headlight. For future reference, anybody doing this make sure you check the wires before you install anything. The colors weren't run the way that I think they should have been. The black were the pos and the red and white were the neg. Go figure.





So, after work when I get home, I'll try to finish up and get some "after" night pics. Then when I get in to work in the AM I'll take "after" day pics and post them all up for your viewing pleasure. I hope everybody can wait.

I didn't think much about it when I first saw then, but after a while I came to like the idea of matching projector headlights and fogs. I hope they turn out good lit up this evening.

Of course, I'll add some big PIAA lights to the bull bar as well.

Hope he gets his mods done. I'd like to see those headlight capsules lit up!
I want a bull bar also, with some on the bar lights and lights behind the grill. I want tire to tire nerf bars on the side also, nerf bar and bull bar in black. I'm thinking of powder coating the rims black with a set of 30's and a leveling kit for the front, or getting some black aftermarket 18s.

All in due time...

Looks like you still have some work ahead of you. It's going to make a huge improvement over the old weather beaten lights. Can't wait to see more pics.
