    Curious, why did you need to install another fuse box?

    Because I've got 6 different wires coming off of my battery post. Running 2 pairs of 6" lights behind the grill, Retrofit headlights and fogs, CB radio in the cab, LEDs in my tool box, and I've got more strip lighting to install in the bed.

    A fuse box will make things much safer and look 100x better.

    True. Know I can see what all you got on your truck and it makes sense.

    Looks good, Will. Did you re-paint your front bumper?

    Yeah. used the same stuff I did on the trailer. Rustoleum gloss rust prevention.
    It's holding up a lot better than the rattlecans did.

    Security in the sideboards.
    Wonder how much lift the
    'noe will give at speed?

    That doesn't look Hillbilly
    at all.

    Now to those yuppies in San Fran you are a woodsman.

    Trust me, I know real hillbilly when I see it.
    I grew up in the heart
    of Appalachia.

    I hope it doesn't give any lift... have to flip it rightside up if things get crazy.
