    Cut the speaker holes bigger for 6x9 in the rear. Installed a set of infinity speakers I bought on black Friday. Going to replace the fronts as the week goes on. Trying to work on the car more this year. Going out in the garage with the wife after dinner for an hour or two. I had no motivation for it last year. Heck only drove it twice last summer.

    1) I performed the Cylinder head rear cooling mod
    2) Installed 180 T-stat
    3) Installed Marty Tune

    Have not driven the car yet as it is in the last 3-5 hour cooling off stage to fill and burp coolant as per https://www.mercurymarauder.net/foru...Burp-Procedure https://www.mercurymarauder.net/foru...Burp-Procedure

    I took some pictures and will give a write up on the rear cooling mod for the people like me unfamiliar with this engine and new to Marauder. Th google searches find tons of Mustang cooling mod which is different than Marauder, and any Marauder ones I found are ancient so was not sure if there was updates or same as how I wound up doing it.

    F250 LED front turn/parking and rear turn/brake lights. VLed V6 Tritons. Phenomenal product quality and install kit. I highly recommend their products. Waiting for dark to take pics.

    Daylight pics don’t do it justice but this is passenger LED vs driver incandescent.


    Both LED rear parking lights

    No. The truck either came with or someone added an electronic flasher.

    If you do LEDs and get hyperflash, don't screw around with resistors. Just swap the flasher with an electronic one like the Novita EP27 or whatever unit fits your vehicle.

    I just upgraded my 2020 Ranger to LED headlights and foglights.
    Incredible difference!
    The OEM bulbs weren't too bad....but they look like gold candles compared to modern LEDs.

    Check out the Headlight Revolution website.
    https://www.headlightrevolution.com/...rcury+Marauder
    They test all the bulb options specifically by vehicle to assure you get the best beam pattern/closest to OEM beam pattern.






    BTW: The high beams will melt your retinas!!
    Perfect for those moron Honda and Turdyota owners who don't know how to replace a burned out low beam bulb....
    so they drive around with their HIGH beams on to compensate.
    I LOVE to burn their friggin' eyes out with my high beams when I see that!

    Scary times ^^^ I remember! Mine didn’t come with the template. I never even heard about a template until years after I did mine..

    Then there was drilling out the trunk keyhole for the backup cam that worked for like a year.

    Both the icing for me would probably be the something like 10” x 20” hole I cut in the floor to “rearrange/reconfigure” the trans tunnel..

    There has been plenty of other reconstructing along the way. But as always way too much OCD thought and execution have made it all come together nicely.

    I HAD the template and I was still freaking out when I had to drill the holes in my trunk lid!

    All worked out well, and I'm so glad that I didn't have a dealer tech (who is under time constraints, and it's not his car) mount the rear spoiler.
