New lights and belt

Now that the weather is a little better I've started back to work on the truck.
I picked up some silver/blue turn signal and marker lights, they light up orange but are silver/blue when off. Yippee, no more fried egg look to the headlights, plus I am running 06+ corners and now I have the legal amber bulbs.

Once I had that done I decided to swap out my serpentine belt and it had started squealing when ever the weather got damp. I picked up a gatorback and after a trip back to the store to get the correct belt, freakin moron, I now once again have a quite truck.

I know the poor thing's filthy but you can still see the difference in the lights.


Here s a shot of the turn signal lit up and gives a good idea of markers too.


I have a new tailgate handle to swap in when I fix the sticking tailgate. I hope to get this done tommorow. I also stopped at princess auto and picked up a 30 amp relay a 30 amp fuse some 12 guage wire and a mess of connectors and I'm going to rewire my driving lights for 100 watt bulbs. I also saw two mods for the summer, a junction box for my accessories and a 12v outlet for the bed of the truck.

well I got the wiring re done lights work great. Although I had to spend about an hour playing chase the short when it was a faulty fuse. No sign of a blown fuse but wouldn't let power through. everything is good now that I bought some different fuses.

I also just made a deal for a free parts truck. Just body and interior, frame is gone but all i have to do is pick it all up.

Its a westin safari bar. It fairly light weight I got it mainly for the light mounting, but it does provide some protection. It s been really foggy here for the last two weeks was out in the country last night and the new 100w bulbs work great gives really good light in the fog.
