Started getting a little dark out so here's a sundown pic of the lights, it's still pretty light outside and they are pretty bright still so i think i'm going to be pretty happy once it gets really dark out, the real test will be when I take her out to the everglades.

And here we go

Heres the new headlight low beams and fogs


Low beams and fogs


High Beams only


Fogs only


And an outside view of just the fogs.


All in all for 80 bucks I'm pretty pleased with how it came out, looking forward to getting her out in the glades to see how they really perform.

So I got bored waiting for the tires to come...UPS and I need to work on our scheduling So I decided to grab some pics of my dads truck and mine.

My IAFF decal and Howdy Damn It! sticker


My dad got this the day after I got hired. I guess he was pretty proud lol.


I got him some new Monroe Shocks last year for xmass all the way around his truck and he just put some new Yokohama Tires on a few days ago, pretty aggressive tread for HT's


Tread shot of my dads new tires

Default Trucks is finally done...for a month lol

So I woke up at the butt crack of dawn and drove to West Palm Beach today to the 4wheelparts store there for what I was told was going to take up to 5 hours. I was in and out, truck in at 9 am. out at noon. VERY VERY HAPPY Tires and the Level both done today along with the standard alignment. Also found out that while she was on the lift that she has a factory LSD in her (didnt know that, didnt want to power break to find out lol) as well as the 3.73 gears. So I'm happy about the LSD, its factory so its not great but its better than an open. SO WITHOUT WAITING ANY LONGER HERE WE GO





I made a new friend while I was there too, he had an 06 2500 with a 6 inch lift, 35 Pro Come Xtreme M/ts...oh and a broken drive shaft lol Cool guy though


AND here she is fresh off the lift










All in all I'm fairly pleased with the Federal Couragias. There were a tad bit noisy on the highway but fairly quiet on the streets. Also they're a little rough on the highway, and I'm definitely going to have to change out the gears soon because you can feel a pretty significant difference in performance from before and after. But I'm really pleased. She rubs a little bit when you lock the wheels all the way to the left, she rubs on the sway bar so the only time that happens is when im making U turns so its the only down side so far. The level kit makes her sit really nice, better than before without thats for sure, got rid of that rake and suspension wise it rides great.

Thats Pretty much all the mods until late jan. when hopefully I'll be getting either gears or the SuperChips Cortex, and then the last thing I'll be doing is an exhaust system. More than likely going to go with the chip first, gears second, and then finish it up with the exhaust.

That looks good, you definitely need a programmer now to adjust your speedo for those tires!

Your speed shouldnt be to far off, about 6% so more noticeable at highway speeds
But it is a good reason to get a tuner lol

Thanks a lot guys means a lot to me that you like it. It's taken a little longer than expected but she's getting there that's for sure. Yeah the speedo isn't too far off really like you said, more noticeable on the highway than anything else. Either way she needs a chip and gears to help move those tires and help out on the economy too since shes sucking down fuel like an alcoholic with a bottle of jack lol. I'm hoping that around my birthday (in a little less than a month) I'll be able to order up the chip myself and then maybe get the gears as a gift or something.
