    Anyone have extra dome light mounts? I (an old electronics major) thought an interesting project would be is to convert the stock dome lights into LED. A trip to frys has reaped a nice selection of parts and colors to mess with. May be nice to get a color combo that wont attract bugs and let you run lights for a very long time with out much drain.

    Side note Crack Kills. I thought my stearing box had a good brace. Prev owner welded a backing plate in but it apperently sucked. So I got crack. A nasty one too. Bob Jordan ( expensive but very good) figures a new frame section welded and boxed is the best way to go. Ouch but its my main ride and I have come to realized I love my truck like a pet even saddened having it borded at the vets awaiting an operation...............
