Sand dunes look like lotsa fun!

Cory, maybe dip the chrome on the kidney grills and smoked fender lights to keep with the theme? I really like that color on the X, nice truck!

The light that runs with the rubstrip? If so definitely replacing those.

New here, been lurking and reading, you guys really know your stuff, enjoying learning from you.



I've since cleaned up the headlights and replaced the hood emblem.

2002 with 106K, typical window issues and pixelated cluster. Runs and sounds great, bought it to tow my boat. Mechanic inspected it today and changed the oil, said it took 8.5 quarts.

Yup, those!

Smoked ones match the door rub strip for a cleaner look IMO.

Smoked side marker lights look good but reduce light output.

With all the distracted drivers on the road, I wanted the brightest markers possible.

Clear lenses (OE) with stealth bulbs (silver bulb, orange when lit).

Nice!

Where'd you get the XDrive logos? I've never seen those on an E53.

Thanks StephenVA.

The StealthBulbs are the only ones to go with, lifetime free replacement (burnout & peeling).

StealthBulbs uses the same Aerospace coating process NASA uses for space vehicles, these things NEVER peel.

Cheap silver bulbs are nothing more then an orange bulb with a light spray of silver paint, these peel.
