ok i have a question guys, when i put the lights on the front, where should i tap into for power? on the other lights i wired up i taped into the wire that goes to my push button, i dont want to tap into it again, because me and my dad both think it would be too mmuch stress for 1 wire, and i would blow a lot of fuses

if the lights are going on the bumper up front, i'd run it straight to the battery. with the appropriate fuses and relay's inline of course..

tech library has a good write up too

well guys got some done today, went muddin with some freinds, ordered about $60 worth of parts off ebay, and got my cb in place, and finally did my shifter handles. the cb isnt wired up yet, im waiting till my dual whip setup gets here. well here are the pics, let me know what you guys think of the shifter handles and the cb idea. oh and im flipping off the old knobs because they were hard as hell to gett off, especially the tranny knob. oh and i got the b&m knob from a freind he needed gas money so he sold me that knob and some $80 offroad lights all for $20. also got some sshifter boots from a toyota from a nnother freind for $5, hope to make one of em for the t case. and i the warn knob i had laying around so i drilled it to fit and hammered it on there

well it stopped raining, and i went out to get to work on my truck. got the front end stripped apart for painting, painted most of the interior, and looked at where i should put my reverse lights. i kneed your guys help on the reverse lights, should i mount them directly under the tailight, or baside it? im thinking beside it, but im not sure yet, let me know what you guys think. also noticed how ugly my core support was so i went over it with a quick coat of flat black, also painted the front of my frame, and touched up my bumper where it was welded. i got everything but 2 peices painted today, ill have a finished pictures up tommorow, the last pic is what it looks like as of now. oh and i took my truck for a quick drive to test out my t handle shifter and i love it, much better than the old one. also got a pic of my new tach i traded the big one for. also took a pic of my cb antenna mounts, and also took of the side steps.
