LEDS are awesome, i have had a bunch of friends complement me on how light it is, and I just replaced my battery for the first time and they are even brighter than when i Installed them

the headunit is the dnx570hd, but i really love the external volume dial and the bluetooth phone situation
i had some problems with it shutting on and off for the first month that i had it, but i took it back to the stereo shop and they updated it, and it has been trouble free for the past year and a half. The interface is pretty easy to use, but I have seen easier. Puts out great sound and the equalizer settings really allow you to tune in the sound.


Also thanks for everyone with the complements

How much did those set you back? How much travel do you get with them?

Nice! I'm wondering how the ride quality will be. Do the Raptors use factory F150 upper and lower control arms?

ride quality is amazing... my dad has a raptor and the ride is awesome.

These are just the rear shocks, the front shocks from a raptor won't work unless you swap lower control arms, lengthen the cv axles, and the brake lines and everything.

im doing the oem f150 fox shocks 2.5's with reservoirs for the front so i don't have to alter anything.
