Talking FINALLY

Had to share this, after 2 years without a headliner, yesterday I finally put it back in.
I also wanted to complete my dual dome light mod ..as well as test fit the gauges. Got a lot done, here's some pics.





I just need to order LED replacements...the stock bulbs are pretty fire-hazardous IMO

I put blue led's in my guages, way brighter than the useless stock ones. As for mounting the a pillar piece, it goes over the stock one. You then drill holes through the new one and into the old one and put the plastic 'christmas tree' looking things in to hold it in place.

Nice, it all makes sense now, thanks bud. And I was thinking about swapping to LEDs for the gauges, I hate incandescent bulbs. Got any pics of your blue ones? Not sure if I want white, blue or green...

I dont have any pics at the moment. I will get some for you if my stupid charger/batteries will cooperate.

Nice setup. And yeah, replacing the lights in dome for LEDs will make your truck look way newer at night. Also, you will see a lot more. Be sure to post pics if you get it done.

Thanks man! Yup I got it done last week... Got my LEDs from SuperbrightLEDs.com and they are insanely bright, way better than any kit that Putco or recon sell, and cheaper!
I need to get some pics and post them up. Thanks for the reminder.
