Yeah, I bought a 48 inch led strip from autozone (around $55 I think) and it was sled adhesive and I stuck it on the tool boxes lid and wired it up. Best thing ever on those cold winter nights searching for tools!

These work great! They come in packs of 8 for about $20-$25. I used a bunch to light my gun cabinet and I'll be using a bunch in my truck bed too

Plus you can put them where you want and prevent dark spots. A bar on the lid will shine more in your face than the box

Oil change, new battery and fixed an issue with the band (it was making noise).

I finally did it. Those stupid swirl flaps in the intake manifold are now gone. Just waiting overnight for the JB Weld to dry before I reinstall it.

For months, those things have been loose and clacking about. My engine performance has gone to crap, and my gas mileage has steadily followed. A test run from a few days ago confirmed that leaving them open helped greatly with responsiveness and overall performance. Now, I'll get to see what happens when they're removed once and for all.

I'm also gonna look into a custom tune to compensate for their removal. Just need to find a cost-effective way to do it.

Complete front end - ball joints, outer and inner tie rods, upper control arms, links, sway bar bushings and a 3" suspension lift, on the front Doetsch spindle and on the back 2" shackles! Now is screaming for the 33" because it looks funky...,

I looked at it to try and decide if I should buy this cap for it or not. Its mine for $60 if I want it, and is in great shape except for the clear coat. I just dont know if it would look good on my truck or not. What do you guys think? image-396315165.jpg image-3444079646.jpg

Just a personal opinion, but I never liked the caps that the line on went higher than the cab for extra head room. Know what I mean?

Yep, I know what you mean. I'm not really for or against it. Its not my preference, but Im only considering this one because its the only one near me for less than $200.

Yeah, it's a good deal. Can you take a buddy, and go set it on your truck? See what it looks like?

I will probably go set it on my truck today, and see how it looks. For reference, I found a pic of it on the truck it came off of.
