Jacked it up and threw a Rusty's adj. track bar in. The stock bar was SO stubborn to come out.

its amazing! When i first installed it i had second thoughts because it droned a little bit. But after about a week it really quieted down. It still screams when you open it up, but you can barely hear it under 2200 and no more drone.

threw some LEDs into the interior tonight. I had to be somewhere so i couldnt finish, but i was able to quickly install the tranny, tcase, and both dome lights. I ordered the wrong size for the HVAC lights so i need to exchange.

the tranny and tcase LEDs where a little stubborn, but nothing a dremel couldnt fix


I soldered the front dome light in, then super glued the back edges of the panel up at the top of the casing so it wasnt right up against the glass.






didnt even have a light in the tcase before

i'll have pics of the finshed product when i get the right lights

Little update...

I finished the LEDs. I ordered a few wrong sizes so i needed to send em back. I re-painted the needles while i was at it too.


Shot my new desktop background..


And matched the tint in the front today. It's actually a little lighter, but i decided to choose lighter rather than darker and it looking goofy. It could just be the extra light coming in from the windshield too.



i also bought some fog lights to fit in the stock position, but have to make a bracket for them to fit. Probably be done in the next few days
