Today I changed the dome, driver's side floor light, ash tray, glove box, fog lights, and engine bay light all to LED. I bought the 880s for the fog lights from superbrightleds and my main complaint is that they do not fit. They really do not fit in the housing, I had to force them in there and felt like I almost broke it. Dome light super easy fit perfect but I had to squeeze the housing so the light fit tight and didn't shake and same with the engine bay light. Ash tray light is not worth it and needs a write up to do or someone that has extremely small fingers because I could not reach it. The glove box was simple but a pain because only a minuscule amount of light bulb is hanging out and it is almost impossible to pull it out. Floor light easy no complaints.

Sheesh I am so frustrated from doing that all in one sitting :evil: It was not enjoyable to sit in the microwave truck and replace these lights it was awful

Got my bump stops delivered today at 9 PM!!!!! UPS is consistently the latest deliverer in my neighborhood and it drives me nuts when places like Summit use them, anyways I slapped those bad boys on and immediately my suspension screamed thank you! :lol: I got the 2/4 drop ones so they are shorter than the OEM ones because I still plan on dropping the truck. The driver's side was trickier than the passenger because a lot of wiring is going right in front of where my ratchet should go so I had to maneuver around it but other than that it was easy peasy.

Yeah I hate it. As soon as it arrived I unboxed it and was going out and my girlfriend was like do you have to do that now? Well yes I've been waiting all day for this! :lol: Guess I lost some points with that comment though

Took the truck to get inspected today. Passed everything but was recommended that I get a new air filter, it was looking pretty rough and I honestly have no idea when it was last changed, so went ahead and bought a new one and threw it in there.

Also got my tires rotated and balanced for free since I bought my tires at discount tire. I had to be out of the house for a few hours since one of my dogs had fleas and some rooms had to get sprayed.
Over all a relatively productive day.

That is somewhat dirty. I have swapped them out in much better shape just because I had a stock pile from getting them on amazon subscribe and save. Just basic Fram ones is all.

How tall were those bump stops? I'd seen the same ones online, but wondered how much shorter than stock they were. I plan on lowering mine eventually.

I can go check and measure them but I have no idea the difference between oem. I haven’t had bumpstops on this truck in ages.

I'm curious to how tall they are. I checked mine while I was changing out shocks and one side just crumbled. It needs to be done, I'm not crazy about the replacement yellow stops.
