Lightheads are mounted! Still anxiously awaiting the control system. All Whelen products.

The bright (day) portion of the DRL bars and the rear turn signals will also be flashed with the Core system when it arrives.

I plan on tinting the mirror lights, grille lights, and probably the ones under the tailgate, too, to make them slightly less conspicuous. The grille lights really disappear already when you're more than 40 feet from the truck, however.

how did you tint your taillights? Also do you have the blind side detection, if so does that affect it at all?

I used VViViD Air-Tint Smoke Black Film, and it looks great on the internet and fine around town, but it's a very sub-par installation in general. I was drinking some beers one Saturday and decided "ahhh, lemme wrap these tail lights!" and 5 beers later they were done, for better or worse hahaha

Less mods, more road trips! I've been busy putting some miles under Rainier.

First off, a trip to Atlanta and Charlotte for my girlfriend's birthday weekend. I took her to her two favorite places, the Georgia Aquarium and ST Octane Academy! 2,467.9 miles. The trip fuel economy worked out pretty close to the hand-calculated 20.4 MPG.

Next up was a trip to Maine to help my parents finish a shack we built last fall on their property

The Truxedo tonneau cover was a huge factor in the success of this trip, as it was pouring rain the entire drive from southeast Massachusetts to eastern Maine. I took ALL of the equipment, since it all had to stay dry and my mom's F-150 doesn't have anything to cover the bed. Bonus, you couldn't tell at all that there was anything underneath it.

8,565 miles later, I still LOVE this truck.
Love that ladder, my personal go to
