As far as I know it helps keep voltage more stable under higher electrical demand. I'm running various LED bulbs and my park lights that flicker every so often, HID projectors, and a bar light/cube lights for backroads. Doesn't hurt to have the extra grounds and I had extra 4 gauge battery cable so it didn't cost me anything extra either :grin:
The universe is a funny place. I just turned on a toaster oven and the LED light on the same circuit flickered and made me aware they're more sensitive than the fluorescent light it replaced. Coming here and reading this right afterwards was a poor play by The Matrix.
No. they aren't holding ambient charge. it's micro amps back feeding through the circuit. turn your rig off and and you'll see they're still lit.My interior LED lights always hold a little charge when the truck is running. The rears give ambient light for my kiddos so I’m good with it haha.
Surprised you haven't taken your mudflaps off yet. Did you have to use the locker there?I took her up Dedeckera Canyon and up and over Steele Pass in Death Valley. It was a blast. Here's climbing a few of the steps:
Now due for oil. Still running like a dream at 129k miles.
Also finally mounted the hi-lift on the rear tire carrier (I had been using a roof mount since I had that long before the rear carrier). Aside from scraping myself on it a few times immediately, it seems fine back there and nice to have the weight off the roof. I had also forgotten where I put the hardware for mounting it there for a really long time so that's all sorted now.

You know it's funny when I watched the video after my friend sent it to me I thought "I forgot to take the front mud flaps off finally" and I was simultaneously surprised to recall I didn't scrape them once over the whole weekend. The rear ones were.... effectively removed through breakage before I finally totally took them off.Surprised you haven't taken your mudflaps off yet. Did you have to use the locker there?
Birdbox mod... I like it. Luckily we don't get too much snow down in San Diego.Tried a Christmas present I'd never have thought to buy for myself out for the first time yesterday. It fits like it was made for the X and is was pretty nice not having to scrape snow covered ice off in the morning.
On these two steps in the video I did use the rear locker. I didn't use it for the other steps. We had a long drive ahead and I didn't really want to mess around but I'm sure that you could conquer the steps without a locker. It just makes it easier
My X continues to just go wherever I want to go. I love it.
My wife pushed for a full Titan swap and even decided on the Hefty setup. The country girls are the bestLuckily my wife has agreed to most of the mods I've shown her. (I married a good country girl.) In some cases though, she can't figure out which one she likes better.
just means that one of the nuts that is welded inside the frame for the stock skid plates broke off when putting mt Hefty engine skid back on. Since you add 4 bolts to the outer corners of the aftermarket skids this is not that big an issue, but I will add a nutsert the next time I have them off.To Google... I haven't heard of this before.
