    Easy to do lol recommend soldering though not the pinch connections. Oh and the pull out light works good as well

    Swap a Chevy grill on it along with black mirrors and it practically it nice looking truck though

    I haven’t Rode that cr250 in about 5 years I’ve been on my 450 for about that long after the bottom end in the cr called it quits now it just sits collecting dust until I get some 1 more project done after the truck is running

    100% agree on the solder, once I was taught how to do it in college, I've been hooked on it ever since. Solder and heat shrink tubing is way better and more professional looking than butt connectors and electrical tape, lol. I really want to get a pull out light as well, those things look very useful.

    I agree. The hood lights work good for quick glances and daily checks lol. Pull out work well for under the truck or going to the back of the suburban. If I work on the motor. It's pretty good for that as well. Only thing is use CAUTION when cranking the cord back and dont lay it on anything hot or anywhere it can get caught in lol (fan)
