    I've had the truck for a whopping 2 weeks and thanks to TW, I've managed to already start on the mods. Blacked out headlights completed today. I printed off the instructions on this forum and went to work, successfully turning my living room into a working garage and substituted dinner in the oven for a few headlights. I decided to tape off the area where the blinkers are so it would stay chrome and retain full use. I also baked the freshly painted parts at 200 degrees (oven off, just using residual heat) to make sure the paint bonded to the surface. *I used RustOleum paint for plastic* Once everything was ready to be put back together I used the original seal then went over the whole housing with silicone to make sure it stays waterproof.

    Yesterday I put in my UWS Low Profile Black toolbox and couldn't be happier about it. I also ordered some 3" N-Fab Nerf Steps that should be here Friday from TruckCustomizers.com for $250 total.

    Sorry for the poor quality iPhone pics but I don't have my camera at the moment. When I install the nerf steps I will get some better pics of the truck and post them. :D

    Looks good, though I'd ditch the mustache (useless bug deflector)

    Dang, now I want to go check the hood and make sure the bug deflector isn't eating up the paint. Thanks for the heads up, good lookin' out. It came with the truck, I like the look of it, so I may try to find a better one.
