My friend Steven put a similar type of LED off-road lights (the same as the one Phobos2Deimos put on his rig), also in the grille. He says it definitely helps on unlit roads.

These are blinding when looking at them. 1900 lumens per unit. I would never use them where there would be oncoming vehicles.

The jbg h4 conversion kit I used in the normal headlights are bright enough for normal driving, even on a lonesome back road.

The jbg piece shipped very quick, and fit my 85 perfect. No complaints

i finally finished my projector headlights and got them installed. still need to modify the wiring tho for the highbeam and adjsut them some. also i replaced the horns but they still don't work some reason. need to paint my grille black also and put bigger emblem on. might also look better if i washed the truck





they work amazing. soo much brighter and better distribution but also has a sharp cutoff so it wont blind others

Cut off the swiss cheese exhaust from the cat back. Welded on some size adapters to the old glass pack and started sizing up the rest of the system. Making an extension cord for the welder tomorrow too as I can't work on anything very well with the welder sitting halfway out of the garage.

Been torn between welding up a side exit exhaust before or after the back tire, but I think I'll end up going behind the rear tire to cut down on the amount of exhaust that may get sucked into the back glass if its down or the top is off.

Started working on this...



Cleaned and ready for paint.

Also. Didn't like the fact that every time I opened up the spare tire rack, the license plate would get all jacked up from hitting the bumper. So, I relocated it.





Can't wait to get home and paint the bumper!

swapped out the studded 33" GYW Duratracs for my 35" BFG KO2's. spring has sprung!
got a little soggy washing the mud out of the 33's before putting them up for storage.

gotta get the bike out as soon as the property dries up some.

Finally got some work done on the Bronco! I don't think I have cursed anything as much as I did trying to get the bolts out of the beams that mount the radius arms. My Snap-on impact wouldn't touch them. And the part that is frustrating is they were that tight all the way to the last two threads. My neighbors were afraid to come out of the house my wife said. lol

I refuse to tip toe through life only to arrive safely at death!

Tried to remove the broken bolts for my driver seat from the bottom. Thinking they are solidly rust welded onto the truck. Can't get them to budge, and easy outs just break.

Made up 0000 battery cables, heat shrank the ends and worked on the charging circuit. Got my cable and bracket all set up on my new starter solenoid.
