Gave my truck a pass on its daily driver duties. I got my parents old Camry to drive around town. I drive a lot and putting 3-4K miles a month in a dually is not as comfortable or easy to do as it would be in a sedan.

Installed a set of SUPER bright back-up lights. Amazing, how much you can see at night while backing up now. The F150's back up lights are about as bright as a match.

Over the last few weeks since I traded I have added:

6 inch pro z oval running boards
In channel Ventvisors on all 4 windows
Weathertech no drill mud flaps all 4 wheels
ARE Z cap with back window that unlocks with my truck key fob
Full bed rug
and I added a garage door opener to my shop where I park my truck so I won't have to get out and unlock the door when I get home.

I received a couple requests for more information regarding the adding backup lights to my F150. The project took about a half an hour to install, as Ford was nice enough to have 2 pre-drilled in the hitch assembly and in the right locations. So, no drilling is necessary. I used one of the electrical splice-lock-clamps (see below) where you do not have to cut the main wire in the trailer receptacle. Ford uses the center contact in the 7 pin TT connector as a back-up light connection, not sure about GM or Dodge or... I did have to open the protective sleeve that is around the wires at the receptacle attach the splice-lock-clamp and then taped the protective sleeve closed again. Test the lights out before you re-tape it. You may want to fine tune the lights angle at night, did mine on the garage door.

Ok, here are the parts used:
- Harbor Freight - Halogen lights (2 in package) $13.99 USD
- 1 Splice-Lock-Clamp (automotive store)
