    Wow!! Looking fantastic! Nice console vault and I love the "family" sticker LOL. In Cali we have to wait about a month or so to get our license plates on. Never heard of it being put on right away like that.

    Welcome to TW! I know that I'll be watching your progress, you've done quite a bit so far.

    I wish I had console to vault. Dumb bench seat.

    Looks good. Enjoy the truck.

    Thank you for the kind words :D I had a 2006 Mazda 6 that I traded in for the truck. And since they are specialty plates they transferred over. Got an extra year on the renewal too. I had to pay the transfer fee, but it was cheaper then a new registration. I'm sure if I had the standard tags I would of gotten the paper plate while I waited.

    The console vault is OKAY... it is a good deal smaller then the center console, and because of this it won't fit my 1911 Full Size in there without standing it up and having it move around, It DOES fit my M&P 9mm nicely though. But I think I'd rather take the bench seat and a hot chick next to me :tumbleweed:

    Thank you, and nope not Cali roughly 2895 miles east :D in the 3rd crappiest state to live in for taxes: MD. [​IMG] <- HA! It did work!

    The fronts are illegal here in MD either though, but worst case I peel them off and only have to spend 80-100 to get them put back on, but as long as I don't drive like an ass the cops don't bother.
