    So I've got some quick fists on the way. looking to mount my flashlight in the cab. Also thinkin of mounting a shovel or something in the bed of my truck that would be handy. any other ideas?

    anyway took a couple pics of my truck beside my dads. 2007 4x4 6 speed. originally had the chrome grille but i talked him into painting it and also adding eyelids. looks 10x better imo

    Couple updates and pics. Ordered a 4 pack of quick fists (2 large, 2 small) and mounted my rigid industries flashlight my the shifter. Used the 2 large ones to mount a shovel in the bed. They are just zip tied on for now to see how Ill like the location. I want to keep the bed extender in so mounting it on the bed side was a little tight and unhandy. So now I'm not sure what to mount with the other small quick fist, maybe ill find something else handy.

    Also attempted to flex the suspension a little. I never mentioned but i have Hellwig 550 helper springs installed and wanted to see how the rear would flex with them installed. Also realized i should probably add the axle relocation brackets as the rear tire was very close to rubbing the front side of the fender.

    With an extra can of plasti-dip and some down time, i decided to dip my rear bumper. i think it turned out good and definitely blends the truck together with the black/gold theme.

    ordered an ultragauge to keep an eye on things. prefered the ultragauge over the scan-gauge because of the larger display and looks better imo and ill be mounting it from the windshield.

    also have a set of TRS mini h1 projectors on order from the group buy to do myself a retrofit. ill do the bhlm while im at it. stoked to finally have good light output the right way

    So I have tried doing the Plasti-dip on my emblems, and can't for the life of me, figure out how to not get it to peel off the way you did. I have got the side badges up front down, but the SR5's, and the back emblems on the tailgate won't work. What did you do?

    tape a square around each emblem, dip them, remove the tape after your last coat while it is wet so the tape doesnt peel it, then remove the excess around the letters once it dries. on a couple i did have to take a blade around the edges but only used enough pressure to cut the plastidip. that made it alot easier to get it to peel cleanly
