Well I still don't know what is wrong with the truck. First time they called me they said the trans was getting low voltage and both my batteries failed a load test. The batteries were pretty old so I thought it was an easy fix. I didn't hear from them 3 hours later so I called and they said the batteries fixed the low voltage but the trans was still going into default mode. He said it was a communication error between the trans and engine. I knew that when I took it in. They never called me back after that. I would think after an hour of testing the truck they should know exactly what is wrong with it. I guess I will have to wait until monday to find anything out.
Got the truck back today. I guess there was a wire behind the power steering pump that was shorting out causing the trans to go into a default mode. $2.50 part to fix. But it took them 6 hours to fix it, plus 2 new batteries. Total cost just over $800. I almost fell over when I saw the bill. Not sure I would have ever found that wire. Thats the way it goes I guess.
Truck is shifting great now. Some pics of the 4-high mod. Keeps the lows on when the high beams are on, just like the new trucks. No hid's yet. I am waiting to finish the body work before I put them in.
No, I had the trans problem a week or so before I hit the deer.

Very functional mod too. Especially when you have hid's in the low's. They will stay on with the highs and not have keep warming up. Should help them last longer. I saw the DRL mod on youtube too. I have a bluish light in my DRL right now. I might run an amber bulb later on.

Yea amber bulbs is the only way to go on a GM in the drl's. That's what I have in mine. I might change them out with amber led drl bulbls but really haven't seen any yet on a chevy truck so don't how they would look.
I don't need the 6-hi mod. With just hid's in the lows there is not much you can't see. But that was with my 08. I will have to wait and see how they do in my 02, but I don't think I will need it. I am just going to leave standard bulbs in my highs.
