On those rigid LEDs... Did you get spots or floods? I was thinking spots on the inside and floods on the outers. I really like those lights and want to incorporate them at some time. Any feedback since you've had them on a little while now?

Love 'em! I did 2 flood and 2 spots just as you mentioned. I played with them driving home the other night. They throw light out just as far as my old IPFs and are plenty good for what I use them for.

I even installed a set in the back.

I am looking to install a lock box in the back of my 110, what kind of box is it? I have been looking at the ruddy boxes.

Truly inspirational. I am interested in that rear drawer also, what kind of sliders are in there. I think that is the major cost building one of those. Good ones are really pricey

It's from Crow River Advance Process Technologies. Was about $650 new.

Teflon rollers actually. The drawer slides great.

Got the X-Eng rear links installed today. Pretty straightforward and no suprises. Si puts together some nice kit too.

The first pic shows a comparison of the RTE link and the new X-Eng Link. You can see how beefy they are and you don't compromise a ton of clearance. Si tells me he is working on making cranked rear links.

Not a huge fan of the purple annodized aluminum blocks.

This truck must be seriously confused as to its sexual orientation at this point. You slapped the gay out of it but now you're telling it it's OK to wear eyeliner and thongs.

I may have totally missed the alert, but is the truck possibly going with you?
