Finally got the exterior of the truck done

Just like the title says, I finally added the last piece to finish the exterior. All total it has the Grillcraft black mesh grill, blacked out headlights, debadged, black Westin nerf bars, a couple window stickers, and finally a set of Status Dystany S802 20x9 wheels with Yokohama Parada Spec X 285/50R20 tires. Only took me 2 years and 9 months! The wheels are based off this thread from Yonkpo, who I think you guys ran off. I PM'd him a few times and ended up buying the same wheels in a 20" instead of 22". I love the look of the truck and there is no doubt it's all street truck. The black inserts keep the wheels from being to bling-bling and the 285/50s tuck in there perfectly and give the truck just the wide stance and look it needs. Totally thrilled with how it all came together. And now the pictures.

Never even considered it, I might try it next summer though once the rain stops for another 5 months. Found this on wikipedia, of course I break the law everyday so it wouldn't stop me but was interesting.

I like the look, kind of subtle but you know a lot of thought went into it. Great truck.

I've lived in CA all my life. I've never heard of anyone getting a ticket for not having mudflaps.

In Kentucky it is illegal to carry an ice cream cone in your pocket.

So I really paid attention to mudflaps all day yesterday and today and I'd say easily 70% of trucks and large SUVs don't have mudflaps. I saw like 8 dodge rams without any and a few chevys and a bunch of tahoe/expedition types. So first chance I get the flaps are gone.
