I finally fixed my VIC's "Bad Coolant Sensor" message with a little solder.
No more beeping

Well, I finally acquired everything needed to install fog lights!! The install took about 3 hours total. I love the look!

Did some work on the heep. De-chromed the grill, touched up the cladding paint, added a roof basket, tinted the blinkers, and installed tow hooks.
I also picked up a spare rim. I need to get it powder coated and slap a 31"er on it.

I just taped everything off I didn't want tinted. Still not sold on the amber side markers. I wanted something different. I've seen so many with the side markers tinted I figured why not do something a little different.

Here's the stuff I use to tint lens.

Edit: The "angry eyes" on the headlights is just electrical tape. I wasn't sure I want to keep those, but I'm starting to like the looks of em.

I bought mine with the lenses already tinted (including reverse lights) and with the angry eyes. I love it. It looks good with those side markers tinted too. I also blacked out my grill.

I personally dont care for the tinted side markers or the signals. Honestly I like the clear (non ambered) side markers. My buddy tinted the same as you except he went full tint on the side markers. I did my tail lights though and I like it.

Yeah, mine had ugly *** aftermarket taillights that I tinted last year. You can see them on page 1. They look much better with a slight tint to them.
I also like the angry eyes. Looks mean

I also like the clear side markers, they have a very clean look to them. I just wanted to change it up a bit. I'm loving it so far
