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...

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.
