I'm in the process of adding an aftermarket dual air compressor set up, for running air tools and airing up tires on the trail (since my H2 didn't come with air suspension, and the OEM compressors are.....wimpy). Got an OEM toggle switch and hose nipple so it blends in seamlessly with the interior.

Upgraded the light bulb in the Maglite to an LED. It's much brighter now. Pictures don't do it justice.

Installed 4 OEM roof lights at each corner of the roof basket, on the OEM rail. I guess you could consider this my first "aftermarket" mod (gasp), since an OEM wire harness is not available in this set up. I'm on my way to 360 degrees of light. Almost done with the roof accessories. Just need another OEM light bar, H3T tool boxes for the roof basket, hi-lift jack, and OEM roof handles.

Installed an OEM switch in the dash today for the grille guard lights in the factory correct position under the rear wiper switch. GM part #15297124. No more janky autozone switch flopping all over the dash.

Purchased a used OEM chrome roof rail today, in preparation for the OEM roof lights being installed today as well. GM part #88960231 (rail) and 89006968 (lights).Surround lighting!
I need 4 more OEM 3 slotted rock guards if anyone has some for sale, in order to make the rear bar match the other lights.

Restored and installed a first gen H2 spare tire carrier (technically an SMA, but offered through the dealership for 2003-2005 models.) GM part #25954417. Exterior convenience package stage 3/5 complete. Lacking roof handles. Soon to come are bumper lights, tire cover and plate bracket. Big Pig is now rocking 2 spare tires!

Installed tire cover with license plate bracket, so we're semi-legal now. Next step is to wire up a night light, and finish the bumper lights.

GM#17800084.
