Seat covers look great! Once I remove my jumpseat and install a console I'll be ordering Katskinz for my cloth seats. I'll have to look into Clazzio, those look good too!
Thanks! This is my 2nd set of Clazzios. They're not as nice as Katskinz, but they're pretty decent for a cover. I had grey leather ones on my '13, and even some of the guys in the service dept. thought they were factory leather. They're also a lot cheaper, especially for a regular cab.

I wanted to do the high beams, switchbacks, and fogs too, but I also kinda want to wait and see how those Morimoto replacement headlights look when they come out.Couldn't wait that long to replace the dismal low beams, though. lol

IIHS agrees, as does the NHTSA

I think in '17 is when they added them to the SCab. The bloody thing kept getting in the way when I was dealing with my fogs taking them out, putting them in, taking them out,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Night and day difference. I hope I'm not blinding anybody with these things.

The white light makes quite a difference eh? If your heads were aimed correctly before the SL1s, you shouldn't be blinding anyone now either. I was worried when I first did the change myself, but I've never been flashed. But I still wonder at times.

I was skeptical about the whole LED bulb in a halogen reflector thing because I've seen it done badly too many times, but this seems to be a well designed solution, and I haven't been flashed yet either. Removing the rear blocks didn't seem to make much of a difference, but I'll definitely adjust them when I install those shackles.
