May I recommend replacing the factory fogs with BD Squadron Pro R's in amber combo-beam? You might find that you don't need to worry about a light bar on the bumper or pods on the a-pillars if you do the squadron pro factory fog replacement...
I will add those to my list. For now I just ordered replacement headlight LED bulbs (Sealight S1 LED H11 bulbs that were recommended from this thread).
And was looking at the specs for the Fog lights to order a replacement for those as well.
Good list there, Wachuko! Let me know if you need any questions answered when you get your ham ticket, been one for 25+ years, and always looking to help out with a newcomer.
Will do, thank you! I did get a BaoFeng BF-F8HP radio with the Nagoya NA-771 15.6-Inch Antenna to practice with when I am done going over the book studying for the test. But was looking for recommendations on something to have fixed in the truck (radio + antenna). Got some feedback from SBG
I still can’t make up my mind about the Bison. It kind of takes the fun out of building a truck. I would personally rather buy a stock Colorado and build it out the way I want. On the plus side, it’s going to be easy to buy one that hasn’t been abused. I think most people who buy them aren’t going to wheel them much and just want the look.
On my FJ60 I ran airlines to quick connects on the bumpers and the electrical through an spod. Makes life a million times easier. You can see the connection spot right by the CB antenna.
I did the same in our Class B RV... air compressor is under the hood and I ran lines to the front for easy access to the quick connect... with the switch on the inside. I will do the same (still need to see where I can install the air compressor) with this truck.
On the build out... yes... and those that know me, know that I love doing the modifications more than anything else. They do not call me the professor of pending projects for nothing!, lol. So this one will be interesting as most of the stuff I wanted to modify from a ZR2 is already there... that and the fact that I promised my wife no more big expenses for awhile... I do want a cover that I will do as soon as I can decide on which one to go with, but after that I need to keep a low profile and stay out of the radar on purchases... can't push my luck with the wife...already in hot water for jumping the gun and getting this truck a year earlier than we had planned
