1999 Project: Lights

I worked over a good bit last week, and I set a little money aside for this. I needed more light on the road. I bought these Bruce these.

Priced a bit higher than I usually buy.

I’ve been thinking about going full LED/HID on the truck. I don’t even know if there’s a difference between the two technologies. I’m old and the eyesight ain’t what it used to be.


Running the roads before dawn and with the deer running, it’s already risky sometimes. So here I am.


This took a bit longer than I expected. The problem is that this isn’t just a simple screw the bulb out and replace situation. I had to remove the entire assembly. It’s a PITA. The headlamp assembly is probably one of the more secure I’ve come across. They put some thought into it for it to be this difficult.

I’ve got to say though; it’s a learning experience. Now I know what to expect when I change out the actual assembly around Christmas. The wife is gonna take me what I want for Christmas and this is it.

I plan to install smoked covers all around. Fog lamps, headlights, and tail lights. I like the look. It’ll make Bruce better looking.


I don’t think you can tell much difference in the lights right now from the pics. I’m sure I’ll be able to once I get behind the wheel in the dark. Which I’ll be testing as soon as the sun goes down.

Anyways, I had the chance to spend the afternoon in the garage doing something I enjoy.

These made a world of difference. The headlamp assemblies are so old the color is off.

But when they’re replaced, it will be about perfect.


That’s it. That’s the post.
