That switch placement came out pretty perfect.
Got home from work today and had a couple hours to do some mods in the Silverado that I’ve had sitting around. Since the weather is really nice today decided to install the new A-pillar lights
ordered the SDHQ a pillar light pods and just received them recently. So threw those on and then added and wired the lights. Still waiting for 6AWG ring terminals to arrive so still have no power to the Spod for now.
Also started working on the behind the grill light bar. As you can see from the pictures below you can see the air flaps I mentioned in a previous post
The last picture you posted made me tired, from looking at all the snow you removed !
Well finished up fabricating the behind the grill bracket. Took a bit of trial and error with putting the grill back on but finally got it after a couple hours of Messing around with it. Also finally wired up the 6AWG wire from the battery to the spod controls box. Now everything is working. (Will definitely clean up the wires next time I work on the truck. Kids are getting cranky and I don’t have time to fix the wires right now)
this next pic is with the bar installed but off
Well it’s been a while since I’ve updated this thread ( and since I’ve driven my trucks)
Since being away for an extended business trip. I’ve had some time to look at some of the mods I want to do when I get home
for now. Thinking one of these head ache racks:
Going to be ordering one of these hidden winch plates as well
And also thinking about upgrading my tonneau cover with a backflip roll up hard covers.
Well. While enjoying my second cup of coffee this morning. My CC pretty much caught fire.
ordered the Rough Country hidden winch plate
As well as a Runva 11 000 lb winch with synthetic line from Costco. Now need to go order a front licence plate bracket because stupid Ontario Canada requires you to have a front licence plate.
I'm running the Tuffy folding plate bracket. It works pretty good.
That’s the one that I am thinking about ordering off Amazon.
It's done good for me. I had to drill extra holes to drop it down (second pic) but otherwise the fit and finish are acceptable.
Thanks for the input and review. Definitely appreciated.
I'd forgotten how good this truck looks.
Now the hard part. Trying to make up my mind on what model headache rack to get. Both are made from the same company and both are aluminium with a total weight of 35 lbs.
The big question is 1 light per side or 2.
Any advice/ opinions?
The one with two lights would be easier to source replacements from truck stops or farm stores.
Why have lights at all? I think I would prefer a simple setup without them myself.
It’s because the low profile models pictured block the 3rd break light and is at the same height as the roofline. The ones with no lights are around 3” taller to not block the 3rd break light.
Well the wife has spoken. Will be ordering one of the racks with the 2 lights per side. Now trying to figure out what the fabrication lead times are specially with COVID
Headache rack has been ordered. Winch arrived at home, same with the front license plate mount. 9 more days until I become free. Now looking up the best way to install a hidden amber strobe light system on this truck without spending too much money
So.. is that a good thing the wiffy is into lights before lockers?! Haha
I can't believe you wondered whether you wanted two more lights or four!
These are only the stock lights. I am already looking at adding extra lights onto the truck and changing up the lights on the rack
Quarantine can play hell on the wallet.. especially during black Fri and online Monday wknd!
Well. Since I had the afternoon off ( need to work 3 half days before I go on my post deployment leave)
Got bored and desired to install my new tonneau cover
Finally found an answer for your question
stock I can fit 285/75/17 and with a 4” lift I can fit 35’s
Is that cover gonna work with that rear window bar/light thingy ?
Installed the Uniden Bearcat CMX760
Well here is a picture of the winter tires. Makes the truck look like it skipped leg day. Got thing it’s only temporary
As well it was nice enough today so I wired up some emergency strobe lights since I am such a shiat magnet. Will add some strobe lights to the headache rack in the spring.( it will give me time to order more as well as plan where I am going to I stall them). Possibly look into getting a trafic advisor, still on the fence about it
Here are the pics of the headache rack installed
Where here are the pics to the answer of if a Runva 11 000 lb winch will fit
Had do do a bit of cutting but everything lined up
That turned out great
DITTO ! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Upgraded the LED lights on the headache rack today. All 4 lights. Ow do stop, turn, reverse, and amber strobe. Just need to tweak the sincro pattern on 1 of the lights. And it will be good to go
