On the Morimoto's... Can't really say I am impressed so far. I aimed them to the higher edge of the factory fogs and I have light, but it is only 18' in front of the truck, and that is it.

Hoping once I swap suspension the light beam is high enough I don't have to take the plastic shiz all off again to re-aim.
What are you doing with the stock shocks?

Washed the front half. Lol.

Only had $2 in quarters and got sick of waiting for the card bays.

Then swapped in my Xenon-Vision Led h4's.

Went well. Boots are kind of a mother to put back on.

Had to cut the top and bottom, then ziptie them tight once everything was together. Hard to fit over the fans.

Light color almost matches the Mori's perfect. Will tell more later after it is dark.

Took some pics, and also will post them later.


Then.... I went and finished washing the rest of the truck/re-washed it. Couldn't stand only half ass washing it.

Added spyder head lights. The leveling motor can be swapped over. Rather easy to do.

So, here's pics.

Was hard to get a pic in the shop showing actual coloration and how close the led h4's match the Mori fogs, but I tried...

Then low beam, and high beam.

NOTE: Low beam does have the fogs on, but you can't really see them as they only shine about 10-15 ft in front of the truck from being aimed too low.

Overall, pretty happy. The high beams are not the greatest, but at least slightly better than stock. The low beams seem to be pretty great.

Light control is amazingly better than with HID's. A lot less scatter. Not perfect, but, lets face it, it isn't a retrofit.

It was just another beautiful day in the desert ..until it wasn't.

Shortly after this stop, I acquired a nice gash in the sidewall of the passenger side rear tire and had to do a swap on the trail -- good thing I had my spare; another excuse to add to that list for getting new tires as soon as possible.

Quick little tire swap during this past weekend's trip with the help of the group. Got a fat puncture in the sidewall but it was a good thing I had a spare and the tools necessary.

Trail repairs are always better with a helping hand or two no matter how simple the task. Daylight is a precious commodity when offroading so more hands means less negative downtime.

I picked up a used set of Rock Warrior wheels for a killer deal, $200, but the finish was trashed.

I had the wheels and rings powder coated gloss black. I spray painted the center caps gloss black.

I wrapped them in with Toyo Open County AT2 35x12.5x17. They fit perfect, no rubbing at all and clear the UCA just fine.

I think they came out great
