My Project.

So what have I been up to? Not a whole lot. You know, keeping up with this blog, feeding cats and a lizard, "looking for a job" to keep the State off my ass, and checking up on the status of any possible new jobs.

And fooling around with the truck. Now that I have the time. This project was on the list of things I wanted to do, but never got around to doing.


This is what the factory reverse lights look like. Of course, in the photo they look a lot brighter than they really are. With it being dark outside and all and the auto shutter on the cell phone camera being not so good.


And this is sort of what it looked like when the factory lights were on. In this photo I had to crank up the brightness a tad and the contrast even more, but you can see the sidewalk. And the grass behind the sidewalk. Not very well of course, the factory reverse lights were pretty much useless to the driver. All they did was alert anyone behind the truck that it was in reverse. Unaltered, you could not see anything in this photo.


This is what it looks like standing behind the truck with the extra lights on. The extra lights look only a little bit brighter than the factory ones, but they are much brighter. The factory bulbs are like 15 watts or something. Maybe less. The new lights are 55 watts each. That is as much power as the headlights draw.


And now you see the difference. This photo has the contrast cranked up to the same level as the other photo - so that a better comparison can be made. There is a lot of difference.

Now, all I need are some fog lights! Well not really "fog" lights because it does not get foggy here that often. So by "fog" lights I mean extra headlights, pointed very low and slightly off to each side. This will light up the side of the road better. And it will look cool. And it may or may not be street legal. But who cares - in Miami "street legal" is a joke. Nothing is done to enforce it. I have seen groups of cops around another cops personal Ford truck jacked so high off the ground that a child can walk under the thing without having to duck. By law in Florida any vehicle with a bumper more than 2 feet off the ground can not be on the streets. I see monster trucks all the time driving around with bumpers 4 or more feet off the ground.

You could probably use your truck up here to spotlight deer in reverse!
