    looks great! when you put the LED lights on your rack as directionals and brake/running, did you have to do anything to the truck so your blinkers dont go really fast? (new blinker relay, etc...) as auxillary lights i dont think they should, but i have heard it is a possibility. i am looking to add S/T/T lights on my rack, so any input would b great! thanks!

    I don't have any turn signals on the rack. The two white lights are backup lights. The two amber lights are strobes. And the red center light is a parking and third brake light. Adding led lights will not affect your turn signals. If you only had led lights for turn signals then you might run into a problem. I have done that to a truck and an electronic flasher made everythink work fine.

    Looks good! What did you use to control the 2 strobes in the back rack?

    This question may have been already answered in a previous thread....

    mossman - Is that a unimount system with an ultramount light assembly?

    The plow is a uni-mount. When I switched my plow over from my older truck the guy at the western dealer said that the old lights might not work with the newer trucks. So I bought the new style lights and switch the plow over to the 3 plug system. I had to make the light mount. I did copy the ultra-mount design. You can buy a mount for like $60, but they are just small adapters that go on the original uni-mount light brackets.

    More pics. I really need some wings. I know buyers sells a kit for $200. I think I could build some really nice wings for that kind of money.

    Mossman, you've got a great looking truck there with the rack, custom paint, and rims. I saw another one of your posts a while back about some of your other trucks. All of them seemed to be unique somehow. The black 3500 SRW Chevy with the cowl induction hood looked awesome.

    So if my username means I'm a potato grower, then Mossman must make you a moss farmer?

    Thanks spudman. I like my trucks to be personalized. And yep, we harvest long fiber sphagnum moss in the summer. Here is a pic of my uncle pulling a load out of the marsh.
