My build from here on out!

So I have decided to make my own specific build thread instead of making new threads every time I get off my lazy A$$ and do something, or have the extra cash

I'll start with my new (used) (soon to be installed) driving/fog lights

TYRI 1010-16i

These are oing behind my SS grill. Will be running them off of a continuous duty starter solenoid. The first 2 pics are them on my friends 12 sierra.

Now on to my weekend work with my dad

I have a failed multifunction switch, and don't have the money for it at the moment. I am going to fix it soon though. We did however get my lights back working and installed WAGNER 9005 high beam lights They are 10000x brighter than the Sylvanias I had in before!

We ended up running the positive wires on the drivers side to the battery and they now work with the switch. I do still however get the service vehicle soon message, same as I did when the headlights weren't functioning at all.

Next we move on to changing the oil

A case of 5w30 and WIX filter
I didn't save the pic of me covered from wrist to armpit in used operating temp oil. I forgot it still had oil in it although the remaining had already been drained...

Now on to the tires :)

I'm so glad to have them damn studded snow tires off of her! They were awesome in the snow but suck for the other 75% of the time I had them on...

I'm now rolling on 2 KUHMO kh20 SOLUS EXPERT on the front, 1 GOODYEAR INTEGRITY on the drivers side rear and 1 UNIROYAL LONG TOURING on the passenger side rear. The rear tires are 3/4 way toast! I am saving for a new set of 4 in the near future. It now handles like a dream compared to the studded though and that annoying stud roar is gone

OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS ON NEW TIRES!
The KUHMOS were great, but wore quickly, evenly but quickly.

Bought some new sunglasses/driving glasses they work great on the early morning drive home from work

GOOFBALL lol

And I have to think my dad for the access to his shop with the lift, tools, tire machine and balancing machine. I had a great time catching up! This was more of a gain that the work accomplished!

Sweet man! Glad to see you got some new pics up. Holy sh those floor jacks are huge and must be pnemautic, huh? Sweet hat and glasses. Also love the driving light idea.

Nice workaround for the headlights. Hey it works for the time being. I know the feeling of not being able to afford something you need.

The driving lights are Fking ridiculous, I'll have to get a pic of them in action.
Them jacks are crazy, I wanted to jack up the ol impy with em yes pneumatic
loving the hat. JPtech always has nice hats, my last from them was lost at a motel, along with my undies and 1 sock

Hopefully with the fiance working I can get the headlights, among other things worked out soon

Forgot to add, new anco wiper blades.

FYI the Bosch wiper blade, the conforming kind are F%&KING great! I had a set for almost a year, could have lasted longer if I wanted to treat them with rainx or something. I cleaned them 2-3 times a week with rubbing alcohol and they hadn't started to crack yet. Minimal streaking towards the end of their life. Keep in mind I work on a strip mine where it is very dusty and muddy... Normal use would probably net you 2+ years. YES, they are pricey, but I caught them on sale at advanced. If you go through a set every other month like me I highly recommend them
