    Default Installed Painted/Color Matched Door Handles Today...

    Well i finally got around to installing my color matched door handles today that i ordered off of Ebay. The whole install wasn't that bad being i have never done this before ha so i guess i learned a few things. The look of the truck compared to the plastic handles is amazingly better! I didn't remember to take pic's earlier but will make sure i will tomorrow! I also have installed my power/telescoping/heated turn signal tow mirror's along with my buschwacker tailgate cap and new color matched painted Antenna that's shorter and isn't flimsy compared to the stock one. I will make sure to take pic's tomorrow and would like to hear everyone's comments! I haven't got around to installing my Recon l.e.d. light strip behind the tailgate i will try to get that done sometime tomorrow also!

    Thanks man. I plan on getting my tow mirror's color matched pretty soon and buying a all black rivet grill looks just like "RBP" grille for only 305$ and is a one piece replacement. I'm just not sure if it will exactly fit like they say but i can always send it back!

    I do like man, they do look better and if you are getting the RBP grille I am thinking of, it will really make your truck look awesome
