Few Minor Truck Changes
I did a few changes to the truck recently. Thought I'd share them with everyone. Trying to make some changes and mods as I can save up and get them.
I got the Chevy emblems in the grill and tailgate wrapped to match the truck, I think they turned out great.
I also changed out the nerf bars after the black powder coated rails were chipping and looking bad that the original owner put on. I went with the stainless steel oval nerf bars.
And the part I'm most excited about is my custom 4x4 decals. I've got a black lab named Dixie who is my pride and joy (at least until we adopt our child), so I thought this was perfect for me.
I've also ordered a Kenwood DNX6180 stereo/navigation system for the truck too. I'll be putting that in next week when it gets here. Then it'll be moving on to the next project...whatever that may be.

Mods look good. I really like the dog sticker as I have a yellow lab.

Thanks guys. I had never considered changing the decals until I saw a guy pull up in a 2500 when I was getting the emblems done. He had a custom Z71 sticker with ducks coming in for a landing around it. Thought it was awesome so I went on the hunt for decal ideas online. Found this concept on a decal for Ford's 4x4 decal. I emailed that design and the computer graphics for the Chevy decals to the local sign design place and they took the two, made a few tweaks to match up to the Chevy decal, and there you have it.
I absolutely love it. They really liked it at the store too, said they'd shown a few people the design and they thought it was awesome. I'm the only one with it...so that's cool to me!

I thought they looked stellar (the bowtie, ovals, and decals). I normally don't like ovals but the 3" you have look sharp on your truck.

Oops, 4" ovals. Sorry for the typo! And thanks for the compliment.

The mods look really nice. And great job on the bowties. I especially like the front one. That small change seems to tie in the whole front end to the rest of the truck. It'd be nice if Chevy would start offering that as an add-on.

Looks great, everything flows very well together with the red ties I say remove the dealer sticker on the tailgate, it would look better without it.
Also that ugly blue sticker on the back window is ruining the beauty of that State red truck2002 Chevy Silverado & 1995 Ford Bronco
