Got my new switches in and installed them so all the backlighting finally works right. Green on the bottom and red on top when turned on.



Also should have my axle sleeves waiting for me at work when I get there tomorrow. That install will include, sleeves trusses, aluminum custom made front bump stops. While it's on the lift I will be painting the wheels (not looking forward to breaking the beadlocks all down).

Very nice, and you set them up right! I need to go back through mine, not happy I missed doing the backlight when I ordered mine. Rookie mistake:nonono:

Yea 25 ****in bolts on each one that will need to be double torqued again, erggggg. Plus my auto lift motor broke so waiting for the replacement to come in. Guess I can't complain it's been sitting for like 13 years. Oh well I think that comes in tomorrow, the axle sleeves came in yesterday, don't really know why 2 pieces of chromoly tube cost $80 bucks but oh well. I'm going wheeling Sunday again so Monday the wheels are coming apart and I'm just doing it, or else I will never do it.

Awesome, have to check them out... but I was referring to, what bedliner coating do you use lol.

I understand the idea of rock lights, but do you often find yourself crawling at night where you would need them? Seems kinda a risky move!

Not really they are more for when I crawl through the mall and go over one of those (what are they called) oh yeah parking curb. Hope I clear it.

As for the bedliner, I have been using a company called Liner Xtreme from a guy on eBay. I buy the 3 gallon kit, I have been using it for years. Best I have seen, tried many different companies.
