I added some color changing leds they change red blue green orange yellow etc. They are cheap and blow out a lot but look cool. When they alternate red n blue and I'm on highway some tards move like I'm the popo.

Soon want to get some HID's and make the fogs and these "eyebrows" come on for the DRL's

FYI: If those "tards" happen to be real popo, you could be arrested for impersonating a police officer. BIG fine and possible jail time. :twocents:

Well the police do not say anything and there are 4 bulbs all changing colors at different rates so they aren't red and blue too often. Also they aren't real bright when headlights are on. I've been behind a lot of police and state troopers they don't bother me haha

I have a ton of pics just I am on my I pad right now and it is really hard to get on my photobucket account what are you looking for? I will try to pull out my laptop this weekend.

There was 2 or 3 of us on the OS with modded rainiers probably what ever you want to do cosmetically one of us has done. Just let me know and I would be happy to give suggestions

For hids go with ddmtuning great product with lifetime warrantee

FYI the official color of your rainier is cashmere metallic not sand beige metallic

You may want to check your state laws. In Washington state it is illegal to have a blue light anywhere on your vehicle. Also any type of flashing white light is also illegal. I am pretty sure you won't be bringing the Rainer to visit the real Rainer anytime soon but beware if you do you can be pulled over for you lights here.

It would still be a good idea to check your state laws, you could be behind 100 cops with no problem but it only takes 1 officer to really get you in trouble. It's your option if the risk is worth the look :twocents:

I had LED light bars running above my "eyebrows" and pulled the harnesses out of the yellow lights for about 2 days... then I got pulled over by a state trooper who told me that I had to have yellow lights on the front in NYS, so I asked him if I could get out a moment, popped my hood, re-attached the harnesses, pulled the LED lights where I had them spliced in, which was the fuse box attached to my fogs so they turned on with my fogs, and he thought it was hilarious that I fixed it right then and there, so he let me go. I think I'm going to tint my eyebrow when I plasti-dip my grill, rims, and chrome on the running boards. I edited a picture so it should look like this when it's done.

EDIT: I can't stand chrome, so I like the look of the black more.

Well i got the 912 leds from here: 194 LED Bulb - 15 SMD LED Wedge Base Tower | Miniature Wedge Base LEDs | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs
and the hid bulbs in the fogs are from ebay. Called xentec. The kit is pretty cheap and well worth the money. I want to get 6k bc the 8k does not put out enough light. My filament headlights over power them.
