thanks man, such a long story. i did it myself only using plugin LEDs, but to reduce the spotting it took the most ridiculous amount of work ever. All trial and error. one thing i did was open up the cluster and chop off a plastic tab that was blocking light. I used a bunch of layers of blue lighting gels and white diffuser sheets, and had to do extensive work to help promote even lighting....it's STILL not perfect, but I already have 30hrs in this project and I couldn't go on LOL! But at least its acceptable now!

When I get the motivation I'll go back in one more time to try to kill the remaining hotspots. or at least reduce them lol

LED 3BL/CARGO from Buggman




The silicone you see on top on this picture is from the previous owner... Still gotta get the rest off... I think my best bet will be my finger nail and a lot of patience. Anybody have suggestions for removal of the rest of that stuff?












The pictures do not do this thing justice!


Will get some night shots for you when I get time!


Thanks so much bugg!

Drove it to work all week. Gassed it up today and will park it for a few. I need to get the painting done on the '98's tailgate so I can take it to get inspected and get it on the road some. It hasn't left the driveway in a couple of months now!

Went down a couple trails, did the antenna delete, changed the color of my air control dials, talked with some old friends about trucks. Pretty good day

Re

Yesterday I did a wash and a radiator flush, polished all the chrome, today I replaced the hardware in my drum brakes, fixed the broken park brake cable, lowered and leveled the front torsion bars, re adjusted the brakes, replaced the fuel filter and packed her full of camping gear for a 4 day weekend!! I haven't been on this thread in a while, over the last month I refinished the dashboard (check out the album on my page) put in a stereo, speakers, amp and subwoofer. Trucks come a long way from the stock 1999 3.0l!!

Did the dome light mod, added blue LEDs to the foot wells. The other day I installed a hood switch I got out of an explorer in the JY and added white LED striped under the hood. Its nice to see a litttle bit when its dark. Tomorrow or next week end I will be working on the grill guard and mounting the 700FF's I just got in the mail.
