Ok the real reason I pulled the bumper off, was the install a 32" LED light bar.

I bought a strip of the Lamin-x yellow film and threw that on. All the lower light output on the bumper (fog lights) will all have the same yellow film over them now.



There was a plastic rectangular bar that was mounted right in front of where the LED bar is sitting (can be seen on the ground in the next pic) but left it out to better fit the light bar.


Everything all put back together.


Ill have to get some pics of everything out at night, but here is a pic inside my dirty garage lol

Dont think so. And the threads that ive seen others do it, they route they went, was drilling through the roof for the antenna (I deff wouldnt do that).

My friend and I recently picked up a pair (each) of some pretty good walkie talkies with a 25 or so mile radius (non city). So figure we could use those when we roll out.

Installed a dash cam yesterday. With all the crazy stuff that ive seen in the last few weeks, figured it was about time.

For now, ive just got the cigarette power adapter running into the armrest. Ive got the hardwired cable coming. Will update more later one.
