    Modifications

    Just a thread about modifications you have done to your rides.


    So I picked up a couple LED lightstrips and wanted to mount them either to the bumper on each side of the guard or to the roof. Only draw back is that I think it takes away from the look of the ride, but I need the light.

    Thoughts?

    Other than my truck is so bad ass that it can drive sideways on a mountain.

    Bumper would let small stuff hit them if you go off road a lot. Roof would let tree limbs hit them if you go in woods a lot. so........ will you more likely be in pastures and fields or under tree limbs? If equal I vote bumper. I hate the look of the led strips, so put them where they are less obvious imo

        Was going to mount them right on top of the bumper, one on each side. Most of my stuff is in the woods or desert. having them mounted up top would help with giving depths to holes, but want a roof rack to mount them too if thats the case. Its the look I dont like, but I need the light. The are pretty short as far as hieght is concerned. 3 1/2" Tops including brackets after mount.

          I would go on top of the bumper and still do the roof rack and put KC's up there. they would look badass on that truck (which I love btw)

              The only mod I've made to my ride is make a comfy bed for my back seat when I travel out of town!

                  You should find someplace called "made-it-back-alive drainage" I don't like the sounds of that other place.....

                    Hey ya know a Death Valley trip is not out of the question. My F-150 is FWD and there may be some cool stuff to explore that I couldn't do with my previous 2wd truck. When are you planning on going ? Solo is not a good idea my friend!

                      Well the trip for this winter is up in the air since my bro passed away. So was gonna try to check it out solo. I know not a good idea, ever. Was planning on getting a sattelite spotter prior to, so I could get in touch with civilization if it went wrong. Thinking sometime around the New Year, so its nice and cool. Go check out Spahn Ranch, and tool around a bit. Tell you what I will start getting a game plan together and if you are game we will make it happen.

                      We will dedicate a thread to it called "Going to the place where we made it out alive, thank God Drainage" that way Mayaca can sleep well at night.

                          Well, then if things get hairy, we can find a nice outcrop to stash your truck at, slap a radar reflecting camo tarp on it and come back later. Then you can roll the RZR and I can lug the gear. Will keep you posted.
