The install.

1st pic. Find a spot to mount the one module. The smaller module I just tucked it up in the wiring harness

2nd pic. Have the LED installed in the left side. This is low beam. The bulbs that was in there was the Phillips. They're yellow when compared to the LEDS. Really can't see much in these pictures.

3rd pic. High beam.

The LED bulbs make a difference at night. Ram blew it when they designed these headlights tho. Piss poor reflector design. :roll: My '99 Sport had the best set of headlights that I ever had.

Have the new Hemifever 87 octane e-tune down loaded into the PW. Damn....feels like a new truck. Got a lot more low end torque. Gas mileage is going up, if I can keep my foot off the loud pedal. Once I burn through this tank of 87, and 2 tanks of 93 octane. I'll do the 93 e-tune. My truck always felt like a dog from day one. Now it's running like it should have. :rockon:

Just ordered King 2.5" from Thuren today. Stage 3 valving, short bodies, stainless steel shafts, boots, cold weather shock oil, The Carli Bilstein 7100's with remotes I have now are slowly biting the dust. Have one front and one rear with blown seals around the shafts.

I wonder how long it's going to take to get them.

I'm still waiting on them. It's going to be a while. As for the wifey." It's better to ask for forgiveness, then to ask for permission." :secret:
