Links added. I should have done it the first time. :)

If you need the maximum output from this unit you'll probably need to cut off the cigarette light adapter and connect it to a power source with a higher fuse rating than the average 10a or 15a lighter. For my needs it should be enough. I'll test it out tomorrow. If you have any requests let me know and I'll try to power it.

Ordered a set of S2 Sport's in amber wide cornering for reverse/chase lights for a good deal - $186. If I'm not happy with the output ill probably replace them with S2 pro's and move the sports up front for fog lights, I feel like the would be great fog lights being amber and having a wide flat beam. Who am I kidding ill probably end up doing that anyway.

It's not high end but I dig it assuming it holds even a remotely keen edge


I also purchased a 300w pure sine wave inverter for charging laptops and our ebikes while traveling. It rates pretty well and was only $45.

Looks good! You probably got closer to 3" out if the kit. Take a look at the ball joint on the UCA. I bet the rubber boot is all squashed on one side and the ribs are touching each other. I so I'd consider dropping the kit down a notch or start saving for new UCAs.

I haven't mounted it yet. More than anything I just wanted to test it out as a fairly inexpensive charger for the electric mountain bike I am reviewing for MTBRdotcom. If it works well I'll probably remove the ciggarette lighter adapter and mount it under the dash or under the rear seat or something. I don't need to run power tools or a fridge so it should be enough.

Thanks bro, checked the ball joint and it seems ok. No binding anywere. Compared to the leveling kit I did notice what everyone's talking about not being as soft as factory but "controlled". It soaks up the bumps better and not as stiff compared to the the leveling kit feeling sporty. I'll take a better pic and measure but the front seems completetly leveled with the rear, not like how it used to be when it would be with just the 2" level with no rear block were it would look obviously higher in the front.

I took advantage of a heated garage and washed my truck last night. Even the coffee girl commented how clean my truck was compared to everyone else! Nice early morning sunrise. 🌞

Not so much what I did to my colorado today, but more what I did to my pride... had a rental car with remote start when I was up in wisconsin and decided I needed remote start if I'm going to live somewhere that cold! So I call up the dealership and ask how much it would be. Long story short, the parts guy pulls up my VIN and goes "Sir, have you ever tried pushing the button on top of your remote?" As I'm standing behind the truck, I do so.... and it fires up like a dream. My man goes "Well that settles that, can I help you with anything else today?"
Tl;dr I had remote start on my truck for nearly a year, and now I can never return to my dealership because they will laugh at me.

In my defense, I had assumed chevy just gave everyone the same fob, and mine was just a dummy button... whoops. Reading the owners manual would have been a good idea!

Do the 18+ Twins not require hitting the lock button first then hit start? Mine is super temperamental, to where you damn near have to hold them at the same time.
