I decided since I was having a blessed day, my son and I installed my driving lights on th e front. They are 100 Watts and you can feel the heat. I was going to put them behind the grill, but decided on another way to mount them, plus I didn't want to melt the grill. Tell me what you think
Thanks alll for your suggestions.

You should do the headlight mod too! Would look great on that truck.

After driving it for two days decided my first upgrade will be new shocks. Got them ordered from Rock Auto.

I used some sturdy angle iron with pre drilled holes. Used my exsisting lincense plate mounting holes and it worked great. I will try to get a close up pic for you. I also still have room for one more light in the middle.

I SAS'd it and dropped a 4BT in it. Then I woke up and realized none of it happened *sad face*

Gas prices are finally starting to fall in Ohio, and for the first time since XMAS, I was able to fill-up for $3.33/gallon.
