I took my truck in for an oil change and I had them remove the rear 4x4 decals while I was there. It was kinda odd at first but now that I've had it done for awhile I'm liking the cleaner look.

I decided I wanted to upgrade the halogen license plate lights to LED. I wanted a cooler crisp white color to match the the rest of the truck.

I first tried the Morimoto XB lights. This replaced the entire housing unit instead of just the bulb. It was simple to install and only took about 5 minutes total with no tools.

Left side is original stock and right side is the new LED housing. I wasn't crazy about the gloss black look vs the stock housing but liked the color.

Both installed. They were really bright.

After driving around at night for a few hours I couldn't stand the glare it produced on my rear camera screen. It totally flashed out right below the truck a few feet.

After doing some research online my wife found me a LED replacement bulb from Diode Dynamics. They offered the 194 bulb in 3 different brightness levels for the 6000k cool white. I went with the lowest SMD2 which they say is 24 lumens. And I was able to use the stock housing units.

Very happy with the new bulbs. Rear camera works great again and the color is great.

I also got the rubber bed mat for free with my ford pass points. It came in a little dirty but it fit great and will help protect the sprayin bed Liner.

We finally got some decent weather here today.. mid 60s.. so i did my first wash with a foam cannon. I gave it a good washing with the pressure washer and then hit it pretty hard with the foam. I let it sit about 5 minutes then hit it with the pressure washer again.

I then decided to give it one more cleaning by hand followed up by a light ceramic coating. Pretty happy with the results.
