    I had the factory stake holes shaved this week. Next I am going to paint the mirrors and the tailgate cap to match also. I am going to keep the OEM tailgate cap...going to sand and fill in the grooves so thats its smooth....I didnt really find any aftermarket ones I liked or wanted to pay an arm and leg for.

    I had tinted the tail lights before but they were borderline too dark.. I actually got a ticket for it a few weeks ago...so we sstripped them down and re-did them...this time we added a few drops of black to some clear....much lighter now and look cleaner than before I think.


    The last pic of the back of the truck is the before tint on the tails

    Looks good. I'm shaving mine soon.

    Is that your subwoofer box in your bed?

    Looks great but they forgot the tailgate. I'm sure that's somewhere on your list of things to do.

    Yes....it is! Along with the door handles. I am ordering the tailgate kit from Sir Micheals. Not sure where to get the door poppers yet.

    ZSI52 - yes thats the subwoofer box.

    ThatSilverStepside - Plugs were fabricated out of metal then welded in.


    The list of things to come are:

    Shaved door handles and tailgate

    Tint headlights to match tails.

    paint the tailgate cap and mirrors and wiper cowel.

    Lowering kit - 2/5

    That looks cool. Did they have to repaint your whole bed?
