They work fine, except the blue boxes burn out pretty regulary. You are hit or miss.

IMO after putting them on and talking to guys who have put a lot of them on, they are just not worth the extra cash. They look cool though. You could find better places to spend that 2K.

Looks real nice! Take out an OSO classified ad and include your price. It's one of the better ways to avoid tire kickers and is a step in the right direction if you're truly going to sell the rig.

That boat looks awesome. I wish I had the cash to add it to the collection.

Boat ran great except for getting hot( need new seawater pumps), I will have the new pumps installed this weekend, it did run 82 mph on the speedo, but I was not trying to run it hard, here are some pics

AB,
Are you havin 2nd thoughts on selling it yet?
I'ld been following the thread & you have done an outstanding job on the Apache. Congratulations!

I have completely restored a few ford trucks and can tell you there is a ton of work that goes into a project like that. Just to be focused & driven enough to do the work is something that most will never experience. Not to mention the cost to it right.

I don't think I could part with it.

Again Nice job! Boat looks Sweet
