added some Cheep lights to the Ironbull bumper tabs and wired the switch into the overhead bluetooth plastic piece. ( crappy cell phone pics at night will get better pics soon. one switch is for the front lights, the second is for the back up lights)

and while i was at it, I added a light to shine on the zomby emblem purchased from mjohns63

and also added a mini quickfist to hold my Surefire 6p flashlight

I chose the superchip cortex over the Bully dog mostly because of the tow tunes ( I travel around with a camper allot other then that, the ease of picking it up somewhat locally to me I couldn't find a bully dog dealer close to where I lived

XTP IMS install problems

so while installing my XTP Intake manifold spacer, I managed to loose one of the studs ( the ones that your not supposed to drop into the holes of the manifold) into the back hole.

I managed to spot it with a surefire inside the intake holes and ended up being able to grab it with a set of these


What is it people may ask and the people with emergency room and advanced paramedics will start to laugh they are called Magill forceps. and they are used to remove foreign objects or food from peoples throat when they are choking ( the ones used are rusty and are no longer used on people )
