Nice 'bou!

How did the new cup/beer holders work?

I meant to get that covered before you saw this...

I finally caved and bought a cup holder that you can put on any horizontal surface. It won't hold a Yeti cup full of coffee upright when you run up (or off of) a 4 foot cut bank. 50/50 on holding a can of beer. But other than that, it is a workable solution 80% of the time. The cab is kinda short on horizontal surfaces. I've been thinking about bolting the damn thing through the floor mats so it is stable, but removable if needed. Sort of the temporarily permanent approach.

Laffin'!

Always appreciate those that are out there getting after it, be damned if they spill some beer or coffee while hanging on for the ride and bloodying the decks!

Curious....

You running the OEM sealed Sylvania headlights or an upgraded option? If it ain't broke don't fix it applies to many things and the OEMs are still going since '91 but have been contemplating the Hella replaceable bulb option for both maintenance/performance gains.

I run a cheap set of LED floods for 90% of trail use. Cheap as in ~$25 for 4 lights. They use no power and are bright, but have no "reach", which is to be expected. Really nice work lights when you are cutting up a moose in the middle of the night though.

No idea what is in the headlights - they work but could use more bright. Was wishing for more when trying to find a route across a very braided out river bottom at night.

In the landcruiser I was going down the hella switch over path at one point, but then found some LED replacement bulbs that looked promising and went that route. They are bright, but also very "scattery". That's the scientifical term for it. I guess I like them well enough that I haven't replaced them yet, but not sure I'd recommend them.

Thanks.

I'm just trying to avoid a potential Mother Murphy Moment with the very old OEMs when one or both puke when I'm out in the middle of nowhere and driftin' corners. Don't feel inclined to clutter up the front end with spots and have a canopy so no rack mounts. Here's what I'm thinking about and they run about $90 for the pair--



And don't believe the idiots that hold to the fallacy that one has to remove the front grill. 15 minutes max for the swap by just popping the top headlight retaining ring screws and tipping the works forward to get to the plugs....
