As far as aiming headlights:

1. Start just far enough back from a wall to have room to walk in front of truck
2. Turn on lights
3. Tape a T shape in the center of each headlight's circle of light
4. Back up to 25 feet on the same flat surface
5. Adjust headlights so that they are slightly lower and to the right of the Ts
6. Voila! (That's frenchy for all done)

I know that, but I meant physically adjusting the back of the headlights. I know there are bolts, but where and how?

Hey thanks jonny, I will trade trucks with you if you want too! haha

And I got the bumper thru a wholesale place at work. Im not sure what the company to be honest, the only reason I could get it is because we get parts from them alot. I would try on ebay or somewhere you may be able to find one.

I appreciate it everyone, I hope I can get some new changes in the near future.

I decided to make this afternoon truck day and do a few things to her.

I saw a white long travel first gen on here with the same style headlights as mine but newer and they had smoked their corner lights out. I loved the look and decided to do the same to mine. I wants sure at first if it would look good or not, but I now am defiantly glad I did. It looks so much better to me.

I hated how when the sun hit the corners it would make this clear white looking color that looked like complete shit





They werent as bad when they werent in the sun but I thought it took away from the all black look I was going for.



Well not for long! lol





I let it dry and bam, I have nice black corners. I left my parking lights on so you can see how the bulb is still visible even when its really bright out.

Nice! Have you thought of tinting your tails to give them a little bit of a darker look? Since you are going for the blacked out look.

Yeah I did tint them lightly, I was going to do my tails today darker but I was exhausted from work this morning before I even started on the truck. But I believe it will be coming soon.

Truck looks sick! But you should tint the orange markers for the murder out look.

I decided to wash and wax my truck today, it was very nice weather so I went ahead and tinted my 3rd brake light and fixed the seal on my after market taillights, lightly tinted them and slapped em back on. I just randomly was like hell, Ill park on the side of the road and take some pictures. . . lol





I parked down in the shade and took a few more, the glare was right bad in the first few.




I also took some videos driving, I will make a new Youtube account soon and post those up. Thanks guys.

Man, the black on black on black on black... looks so f'in sick.

I've always want to paint the chrome trim around my grille and accents on my front bumper but have no idea if it'll look good on the sunfire red pearl. I'm thinking the contrast might be too much.

Post a picture of your truck up in the Photoshop section and let someone let you see what it would look like. And thanks for the compliment!

The trick is with painting trim pieces is paint them all at the same time, and paint the entire bumper not just the accent pieces. It was to look matched and even or it will look horrible, I learned the hard way.
