+2 on leaning how much was your bumper?


Can you still pull quite a bit with that bumper and the hitch?

It's not taco lean, it was my crappy picture taking skills I was holding it at a slight angle. I thought it was taco lean then j saw how the roof was uneven too. The bumper was about $525 I think it was $450+$75 for receiver hitch.

And yeah that hitch is super strong. It's welded to the bumper then the bumper has 8 bolts holding it to the frame, it not going anywhere I've even used that ball hitch as a high lift point with both rear tires off the ground with zero isssues

I realized that I havnt missed my truck recently and it was making me feel bad so i decided to paint my chrome grille black.

I used the duplicolor BSP color match spray paint 7.99 at autobarn, valspor clear coat, and rustelom automobile light gray primer. Also I used 150 and 220 grit sandpaper to get the chrome off. also a hair dryer was also needed.




I sanded it all down first with 150 grit then 220



Next I put 3 coats or primer waiting for each one to dry




Next came the BSP spray paint. I think I did 3-4 coats. On the very top of the grille all the pearls in the paint would End up at the edges of the grille because of the slope (sorry no pics) and figured our that if I spray the paint of then immediately put the hair dryer on it it drys before the pearls have a chance to float down.



I did 4 coats of the clear just because I'm anal about it then here is the final product






Next week I should be putting some 35w ddm tuning 3000k HIDs in my fog lights so stay tuned for reports on that.
