last few mods, to my 89 probly not what your think

these go in order.

first was out snowwheeling in norther idaho bought 30 miles from canada, and a snow road alittle side hill and little throttle and no traction decided to put me in try. caved the hole right side of the truck in from the door to 3/4s of the way back on the bed, shes a gem now.

the 2nd was installing two hella 550 lights inside my rear bumper. I cut to 6" holse in the bumper. welded tabs inside the bumper to mount the lights to and walla, hella reverse lights, they are awesome, they are as bright as my old kc front lights. my only problem is the lights are mounted sideways cause they wont fit inside the bumper vertical. being sideways means the reflectors in the lenses arent throwing the flood pattern like they should, cause there on the sides instead of the top and bottom.

im in process of boxxing them in, to keep mud water and junk off of them.


anyways thats about it for the past month or so.

lol

I knew I forgot something, I get got my tires rotated yesterday and set of shocks in front cause they were both blown and under warranty.

rides alittle firmer, other than that I havent noticed much, theyre the RMX less shwab brand shock. not sure who makes them. Im on my 3rd pair in the front so they must not be to great.
