Default Whew...busy couple weeks

With all the overtime at work and new baby at home (three boys under 5 = busy!), I’ve not had a chance to be on the site here as much as I’d like (other than emergency reading with projects mentioned in this post!) Over the last few weeks I squeezed in a little time here and there to get some stuff done with the truck and thought I’d share with everyone....

First off, got her tinted “legal” for AR, although I wish I could go much darker...then......Next up the Hella 500’s behind the grill and switched in the cab. I liked the look ever since I saw it here on the forum.


My ole man said I could borrow his camper if the truck was setup to tow it....it wasn’t (no factory towing wiring other than the 4-pin and no receiver hitch, damn) so I needed to wire the 7-pin trailer harness and a brake controller to help slow that thing down. After a week (couldn’t do it all at once w/ time constraints) of planning/wiring and a pain in the rear night of receiver hitch installing ....went to get the camper and....everything worked – whew! Now, on to the lake!



After a weekend at the lake and back in the grind, it was time to install the amp and 2 12”s in the custom underseat box I’d received a week or two before....still have the original deck so I wired in the output converter for the RCA’s....



And the last “mod” if you will, the long overdue, “every 30k” rear differential fluid change and optional painted diff, cover (thanks______ for the post!)
Finished this one last night.
before:after:

I failed to mention the Superchip Flashpaq was being used this whole time and was having fun with that!

So there’s my list, lots of goodies (thanks tax return and >understanding wife<!) and it means even more since I did it all myself.
Special thanks to ramforumz.com for the endless supply of info!

cool, that's not too bad for tint. Keeps it shaded without killing the nighttime vision.
