Upgraded my tail lights and 3rd brake light.


3rd brake light has been burned out for years! Turns out, one brake light was out as well. Have photos lit up, but so bright, nothing else can be seen! I'll have to try again later. Maybe during the day!
Headlights and shocks to do still.

Do you have a link for the switchbacks? And did you need load resistors for them?

No link it was just an Amazon deal, only like $20, yes I used load resistors because they came with the bulbs for a little extra. Most other guys like the anti flash relay, I don't know much about it, I've never used one before but I hear it's a much better route to go

I'll look into it, thanks. I'm not very good in the electrical department so I don't want to mess with load resistors.

Finally got new set of Spyder Haloprojector headlights installed! A 4 day project! Although, weather and a messed up wrist didn't help any! Just need to get lights properly aimed is all that's left.

Front of truck.


Front, with parking lights only.


Headlights on.


Will update last 2 photos later, when it gets darker!
So things can be seen better! And reassemble grille guard
after lights have been aimed.

Thanks!
Again, hope to update last 2 photos, after it gets darker, so they can actually be seen betteer! Aiming them is gonna be a challenge as well, I think!
Pull out, adjust each light, install, check, repeat until right, or as close as I can get it!

Today I put my 2019 tags on after getting it with 2017 tags on it. Such a proud day for sure.

Installed OEM front splash guards on my 2011 Ranger. All of the web sites indicated there was no such thing available for the 2011's. I looked up the part numbers for the front fenders and they are identical for the earlier year models. If the fenders are the same, then the splash guards should fit....and they did.
