    Default Installed my leveling kit and Wheels....

    Just got it complete...... I've had the truck for two months and now I have it exactly how I want it... i removed the front valance , blacked out the Bowties , tinted my front two windows , got Flowmaster Super 44 exhaust installed , put on a 2.5" leveling kit (and new brakes while I was at it) , and finally sold those stock 17' steel wheels and bought some of the 18"s that I love on these trucks , and purchased my Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ's 305/60/18's , oh yeah-today took the dash apart and removed the TPMS LED , since the new wheels didn't come with the sensors.

    I sanded them down with very fine sand paper , then wet sanded them - to get them as smooth as possible , taped up the chrome around the rear one and put 4-5 light coats of gloss black spray paint , let it dry between coats and finally 3-4 coats of clearr coat from a spray can. Acourse I had removed them for this and the front one just pops back on and the rear one takes a little adhesive.
