Aside from upkeep, Iíve been planning for a solid axle swap and manual transfer case

*edit* Iíve got to take care of the rusting rear cab before it gets worse

Iím going to cut off the side marker from the old lights and mount the orange portion back on the truck. The piece of plastic that holds the turn signal fits on the new header panel, so itís just a matter of cutting off the rabbit ears





Iím thinking about wiring up an led strip because I only have one light for the whole housing

I superimposed an orange light under the headlight in this pic; it turned out a little crooked, but itís good enough as a representation. I like the look, so I think Iíll go ahead and do the mod

So this is Ruby when I bought her. Had a busted transmission and the dude wanted $4000. Offered him $2000 in cash and it was mine

The first upgrade I did to the truck after I got her back from the transmission shop, was led lights for the gauge cluster, as all but 1 was burned out

This turned into a goal of replacing all of the oem lights with leds. Put a mustang dome in with red leds

I know this is an old post, but I was wondering if you had a how-to on replacing the dash lights, as well as the dome light and the respective number (I think I've seen 192 thrown around). Thanks!
