Installed and wired up my pair of PIAA 520's.

Maybe not as fancy as LED's, but I like that they match the rest of the halogen on the truck. I'm not entirely happy with how they are wired right now, the pigtails on the lights are too short so I cant tuck their plugs under the hood, I'm going to end up cutting them off and either adding my own or just removing the plugs entirely.

My fog light bulbs are PIAA Plasma Ion 2500k, the 520's are also the Ion yellow, the main lights are Philips X-tremeVision white. The yellow in the fogs helped a lot in the last few blizzards I drove through in Utah, but I'm on the fence on if I want the roof boobs to stay white or not.

Next i need to order a spare fog light stalk so I can chop it up to do the independent fog control mod: https://www.thenewx.org/forum/747747-post46.html







Next mod on the to-do list is the Malaysian Navara hood prop kit. Ordered Friday, should be here by the end of the week by DHL's estimate.
