Well, bit the bullet and ordered a Full-Race FMIC today. Talked to Jeremy that's there. Takes about 3-4 weeks to get it done and shipped to me...so excited! Really looking forward to seeing how it complements the other mods I've done.

Ordered a Carbon Fiber shorty antenna last week, finally came in today. Looks a lot better I think.

Well guys, last night I found some Rigid D2s buried in my closet, so I hooked them up.

I started with routing the wiring through the bumper and behind the headlight.

Gotta be strapped...
The Silver Sleeper Build Thread-forumrunner_20130601_115602.jpg


I then used this firewall hole and grommet to feed the wires through to the cab. I drilled a hole in the grommet just big enough to where you can barely get it around the wire. So you ensure a water tight fit.

Wires are all tucked and wrapped with electrical tape to look stock. I hate have red wires running everywhere. I sip tied and taped all exposed wire so nothing is flopping around.

Well I got my new taillights from Shakezone today. Easy as heck to install and look A LOT better than the chrome IMO.

The Silver Sleeper Build Thread-forumrunner_20130604_182853.jpg

Chrome old tails


The Silver Sleeper Build Thread-forumrunner_20130604_182908.jpg


Take out these to 8mm bolts.

The Silver Sleeper Build Thread-forumrunner_20130604_182919.jpg

Pull on the tails straight and aft. It could take some force, DO NOT use a flathead. It will mess your tails or paint up on the truck. I didn't do it, but just a heads up.

The Silver Sleeper Build Thread-forumrunner_20130604_182931.jpg
Commect your wires and lights back up, line the prongs up with the guide hole and push the light in, re install the 8mm bolts, and you're good to go!!

Got my LED lights from Jon_To today. Very easy install once you figure out what goes where. These things are BRIGHT! the reverse lights are intense, you can actually see everything in the cab now. Its great. Definitely worth the money!

Is the opening in the bed with the tailights removed large enough to fit a HID ballast inside of? I saw a 15W HID kit on ebay the other day specifically made for the 921 bulb that goes in our reverse lights and was thinking of pulling the trigger on it, but I haven't pulled the lights off to see if there's room for a ballast in there.

You might be able to put a slim ballast in there. I don't think a normal ballast will be able to fit.

Thanks! What I'm looking to get does in fact have a slim ballast, I'll have to give it a try, I'll be sure to post a write up somewhere on here if it all works out. Love the truck, keep up the good work!

So guys, I need some suggestions for wheels. I'm down to 3 different ones...
Method Race Wheels - "the standard" (18x9)

SVT Raptor OEM wheels

FX4 Black OEM wheels

I'm torn between the 3. Post your thoughts!
