I've got a LED light bar on the back of my truck that really lights up when I hit the brakes and I know for now my brake lights are working well, definitely something to keep an eye out for though. Driving behind guys with one/no brake lights really sucks.
How long have you had those on for? Looks good, my truck looks similar right now, I got a Recon light bar on mine and it's been flawless so that might be a good sign for the rest of their products.
About a year and a half ago, one of my truck's OEM tail lights got smashed while it was parked overnight on the street. I took the chance to swap both tail lights with some aftermarket ones made by Spyder. I like the smoked/blacked out look but durability was less than stellar. Unfortunately, it only took around 6-7 months for the resistors in those lights to go out and now my tail lights have the too-fast LED flash. Does anyone have any recommendations for some higher quality smoked tail lights that won't fail in a couple months? There's a bunch of options out there in the same price range as my lights. Then I also found some significantly pricier ones made by Recon - is there a corresponding increase in quality with that company? Or does anyone know how doable it is to find the resistor in my current tail lights, cut it out and splice in a new one? I'm not much of a wiring guy but not afraid to learn new things, especially since these lights are screwed up already anyways.
My rear right turn signal is having a very strange issue. After I turn it on, it blinks normally for around 2 seconds, and then starts blinking fast like there's a bulb out. All my turn signal bulbs are working. I do have aftermarket tail lights and a tailgate bar on the back of the truck, but I haven't had any problems with them for months. Anyone else had something like this happen?
Has anyone tried to make their own version of the Red-Line badges? I haven't seen one in person, but it seems like they are just painted black on the surface and red on the sides. Could someone who has actually seen them confirm that it's as simple as getting out some masking tape and a few cans of spray paint? I saw a Ram the other day that was all black with orange tow hooks on the front, and it looked awesome. The orange and black went really well together. I feel like orange is a color that could be very easy to overdo, so I'm thinking about starting small doing an Orange-Line badging instead of a Red-Line edition.
I am planning on taking the air dam off of my truck pretty soon, but I feel like the chrome "mustache" will look very odd hanging on the bottom of the truck without the air dam. Has anybody removed the chrome mustache or replaced it with something else, and want to share their methods/results?
My truck is a bit of a pain in the neck for me to get to this week, would you mind telling me if the muffler was center in/center out? I'm thinking of doing the Black Widow 250 or 300 with a single in/dual out setup, but it only has center inlet, so I was wondering if that's gonna be an issue.
What don't you like about it? Also if you've heard both the Black Widow and the Flowmaster what are the differences? To me it seems like the Flowmaster has more of a truck-like low rumble while the Black Widow has more of a muscle car sound. Also all the clips I've heard of Black Widows sound crazy loud. I want to be able to make some noise, but not be that guy waking up the whole street.
I have a 2017 LT with the 5.3 and I don't like how quiet the truck is stock. Even with my foot on the floor it doesn't really sound like much. My old truck had some sort of Borla system on it, not sure which one, which sounded amazing. I am currently thinking about mufflers like the Flowmaster 44, Borla S-type and similar. Personally I would rather not blow $900 on an exhaust system if I can get a similar sound with just a muffler. I know that there are some minor performance differences but I'm not trying to win any races, I really just care about the sound. From watching videos I am struggling to tell if there is a major sound difference between a full cat-back system and just swapping out the muffler. I've seen some where it appears to make a huge difference and others where it seems pretty minor. The options I'm thinking of are: Buy a single in, single out muffler, cut out the stock one and weld in the new one. I'd leave the resonator on and install an AFM module to disable that. Buy a single in, dual out muffler, cut off the stock muffler. Get a shop to weld in new tubing. Would take resonator off and install the AFM module. Buy a full exhaust system. Are there major differences in sound between these options? Also does anyone have a ballpark estimate on how much option 2 would cost? I don't think I will drop the money for a full exhaust system, but I also don't want to waste $200 on installing a muffler that won't make my truck sound much different from stock. Thanks!
