Well if you overseas serving i thank you.

Tail light black out is gonna be my thorn. I seemed to forget why everytime i do it i say i wont ever do it again but it drives me nuts for some reason with the big red reflectors starring at me.
DRY TIME is a slow process. Easter dinner will fit into the mix perfect for this part.... not so much on all my other parts of the puzzle.

Dont seem like much but wiring in the light bar switch and mounting it was a pain. Between brakes and tailights consumed a ton of time.
Before the questions come and im tied up half asleep with family , which i will answer when i can. Wheels are 17" KMC rockstars .
BFG KO2 tires 225/65/17 full cock flat land NO RUB..... over a curb at full cock only a slight in front plastic fender rub, with a heat gun and or some small fab work you wouldn't rub even then.

Where exactly did you put the light bar switch? And how did you cut/drill the opening for it?
