    So I got this crazy dare from a friend of mine. He wants me to put this carbon fiber sticker thing on the fenders and bed sides my truck. He said he would pay for it all. I got to see it in person and its probably the best sticker I've seen. Should I do it?

    Here is the link to the one he will be getting for me.

    Since your truck it black it wouldn't look terrible. IMO, fake carbon fiber=ricey though.

    K&N intake. That is all. For now...
    Thats good on accent parts like lips or wrapping a spoiler that isn't CF.

    And the above only applies to cars usually. Not so sure how it would look on the truck...
