    i haven't tried yet. the wifey slaps me every time i try to do something in my truck. the 3.5 has plenty of power to do one, but i think it might be hard considering the front axle ratio is 2.86:1

    Nice looking car... Clear glass sucks but it costs an arm and a leg to get windows tinted here in MN.

    ok, well i went ahead and broke out my extra nite-shades and clear this morning. even with the clear coat, it gave the tails a semi-gloss black look, which i'm okay with.

    I love the look of the rear of the car! The blacked out tail lights turned out amazing! My dad has almost the exact same car but its a 2007. I think it is kind of annoying that the windows aren't tinted deeper for the factory. Great work keep it up
