I've done the LED swap in my cab light and map lights, the zip-tie mod to the throttle cable, put nightshade on the corner lights and painted the emblems and grill a few years ago. Still looks good today, only 1 or 2 small chips from rocks.

Easy? Its not difficult, just time consuming. Driver side only though. Unless you want to remove the E-brake... I ended up putting my door lights back in that ford jipped me of. Should only be about $20-$25. Depends on how much the wire is that you get and how much the clamps are. I did a write up of it a bit ago, i'll give a link for any who are interested. If you want full potential, go get the clear lenses afterwards. Get them from the stealership or LMC truck. I got mine for $5.44 a piece. This is optinal, but i strongly recommend it. Here are mine at night with clear lenses:

All done.

Srry don't have a pic of rear bumper right now it's been Plasti dipped too.

Plus got a locking chrome gas door that I Plasti dipped. The scoop is functional I made it work lol.

For that just basically cut a 3in hole in hood and used duct work and such to make it work. Found some flat plastic duct work. And put a y pipe connector when did gotts mod so all the air goes through filter. Even made a flap type so if raining I close it. Works pretty good.

Install some aftermarket tweeters to the front or rear of the cab of your truck to get better highs out of your music!
