wanted to show my LED light install as well...

first i drilled three holes in the taillight housing with the biggest hole saw that would fit...


then i used some cardboard to make a pattern for the plate that would replace my taillight lense... and cut the plate to fit...


then i painted up the plate... bolted it in place... and installed the lenses and grommets...



just running lights


brake lights


still visable clearly from an angle as well...

and i got some help installing my back seat finally...

fits like a glove... and it can adjust forward if need be...


it does sit a bit higher... but I can sit back there comfortably...


i'm still not sure exactly what it came out of... i believe it's a ford expedition back seat... but with the quick release still under it it was way too high... so i bolted it directly to the floor instead w/ a 3/16" thick plate...

here are some newer pic's
installed a winch in the front bumper...
cleaned up and re-supported the front clip first... when i cut out for my radiator i was running really short on time so i hand plaz'd it out and weakend the structure a bit... so i reinforced the bottom edge with some rectangular tubing to give it all a bit more rigidity...


then i welded in a piece of 3/8" plate between the bumper mounting channels to give me a good solid piece to mount the winch to..


back together waiting for another day to install the winch



winch all mounted up... wasn't much to it... drill four holes and bolt it down... going to build my own fairlead setup... the one that came with it seemed a bit narrow for the size of the drum on the winch...



she looks good on there...

Mike, Can you post a picture of your modified heater box? I was thinking of doing something similar by making a box that houses the stock heater core and a heater valve in the hose. The box will always flow air through the heater core and I was thinking that the heater valve would control the temperature by reducing the amount of water going to the heater core. I'm not sure this will work, but looking for ideas other than buying a underdash heater.

Thanks
