    Hello all,

    Over the past month or so I've been pretty inactive..the time just seemed to get shorter and shorter. But, in my absence I've completed a few mods that I have been wanting to do for a while now -- so I figured I would share. As always, feel free to give me thoughts and feedback!

    First mod: Recon LED Tail lights:

    Next: Tailgate bezel

    Had leftover paint....so I decided to go along with SurrealOne's transformer stuff, with an added twist:

    Haven't decided what to do with it yet...but it turned out pretty cool!

    Gibson Stainless Headers:
    --Not installed yet, will be soon!

    Next on the list is 4.10s! Let me know what you think guys!

    Thanks guys! I am really happy with how the bezel turned out...its amazing how big of a difference it made. I'm pumped for the headers and even more excited for the 4.10's.

    [MENTION=40941]aloxdaddy99[/MENTION] how did the rigid light turn out? Did you get it all mounted?

    You should get blue header paint so the headers will match the truck.

    Thanks! I am very pleased with the progress so far. I think the painted bezel really ties the back end together
    When I get the headers put on I will try and post a video...I think they will be a nice addition to the gibson exhaust I already have.

    I love the red and gray on your truck...but I am a sucker for red :glasses:

    I do! How does the paint hold up?

    I have no clue I haven't used any before, but I can guess some hold better than others I'll see if I can find reviews to give you a straight answer :lol:

    Let me know what you think. I can help with the brackets.

    Looks like it worked out pretty darn good, great job! I was wondering how you would get the double row to squeeze in that small opening.
    I bet that sucker is bright. Help with the brackets would be great -- I'll just send you a message or something when I get closer in the market for the light. I was in the market a little bit ago...but I decided to go with the headers and tail lights instead. :great:

    Haha. That sounds good, I appreciate it!

    I have to agree with the other posters that the work done on the tailgate realy make it all come together. what type of paint, and application method did you use?
