Been a long time since I did anything to the truck. In the interim we moved and did a bunch of updating to the new house. Finally getting back to doing some truck stuff.
After the last time I posted I swapped out the Airraid Jr for a full Airraid system. The cheesy Airraid sticker had to go though and I thought that oval area was perfect for a blue oval. Some eBay searching yielded exactly the right size.
I wasn't thrilled with the noise level in the cab with the Magnaflow exhaust. Some searching led me to adding a straight-through Magnaflow muffler in the position where many trucks have the factory resonator. That was perfect, especially after a few thousand miles. Love the sound now and its tame on the freeway.
I also added a set of "Raptor" grill lights. Since I have the aftermarket grill I made my own from some eBay LED marker lights, some 1/4" ABS sheet and some lengths of ABS pipe to space the lights closer to the grill. Testing without the spaces revealed it lit up behind the grill too much for my taste. I drilled out the inside of the pipe sections with a step drill which resulted in a perfect recess to hold the marker lights. The light isn't as diffuse as in the photos--they look great in person.
