GEXR in the north! As 431 approached, I thought to myself, 'heh, it looks like those people who swap LED headlights into their lifted trucks.' Upon closer inspection of my image, that is indeed the case with GEXR 2123 (formerly LLPX 2236). I've been trying to figure out when and why this unit had its standard ditch lights swapped for LEDs. I've been able to determine that it happened sometime between  August 2016  and  October 2017 . Leave your intel (or foamer theories) in the comments.

  1. Huh… the dreaded LED ditch lights…

    2123 never stepped foot on GEXR soil after it was rebuilt…

    you can keep it with those LED’s :)

  2. GEXR sure could have used 2123 this winter.

    Nice photo of it.
