Rally Armor mud flaps...

As you could see in the above pics, I installed some rally armor mud flaps. It was not an easy task to do, I actually had made a install thread for these too. Here are some pics of the process...



Here is the hardware I used, U-nuts...









I then made a template for the rest of the flaps to make the install easier.









Im so happy with the results and they are still holding strong today. They are doing a great job of keeping crap off my fenders and bumper, not to mention they look cool too...

I wanted to be able to just turn on my fog lights by themselves without the parking lights or headlights on. So first I did the fog light mod and I used a inline fuse with the same rating fuse as the one under the dash just to be safe. Heres a pic...





Then I did the parking light mod so that when my headlighst are on the parking lights are off. They still work when you use the blinkers or hazard lights, looks a lot cleaner at night IMO. All you do is snip one of the 3 wires on each light harness and they still function but stay off when the headlights are on. This mod also makes it so when the turn signal is on the front and side indicator lights do not flash in unison, one flashes and then the other. It is actually pretty cool, kinda like the rear turnsignals on the newer mustangs. I also added some yellow Hella fog light bulbs so the fogs are super yellow. With both the yellow laminx and the yellow bulbs, the fogs are really bright yellow. Looks awsome at night!

This is a recent pic BTW, some of the mods that you can see I have'nt gotten to post yet...

No, only when I pull out the knob. You can bypass the parking lights with the fogs on by doing the mod in the pics. You take out the relay in the engine bay for the fogs and bypass it with a wire or inline fuse like I did and then you can have the fogs on in the parking light position without the parking lights on. Fogs will also stay on when the high beams are on. The two light mods I did gives you complete control of what lights you want on.

They stay off unless I use the turn signals or hazard lights. The parking lights on the sides work as normal but the front ones are always off. I hate the way they look with my lights on, looks like a damn mustach lol. This mod isnt for everyone but I love the way it looks now without those front parking lights on, but like I said they still function as blinkers and hazard lights.

Thanks, I got more pics coming soon! Its not a huge difference, you will deff be able to tell the difference though. Really makes the throttle response instant and snappy, the lag thats in the stock TB is gone... I deff recommend the larger aftermarket TB's, just adds that little "extra" bit of fun.

Ok, well this is a mod I will probably do then, not a big fan of them either. They really do just stick out to much.
