    Debadged, tinted windows, upper/lower Grillcraft (horns relocated), Hella 500's with HID Mod (55W 5000) behind grill, shorty antenna, WeatherTech side window deflectors, suspension TSB, Westin Signature Nerf bars, JVC KD A-615 Head Unit with Sirius Direct tuner, Blacked out headlights, DTDL Mod (Switch for on/off), Hard Wired GPS, NOKYA Arctic Hyper Yellow Fog lights, Fog lights on anytime Mod, Michelin LTX M/S2 (P265/65R17), Powder coated OEM wheels. LED ANZO tail lights, Weather Tech FloorLiners.
    Finally got a good day today to install the bottom grill. I did the top between Christmas and New Year. During the install, I relocated the horns to the left side near the Battery. Got the idea from here, thanks (forgot who it was now). One note however, when moving the horns I noticed there was a temp sensor in the bundle. I broke it out so it stayed where it was designed to be. Also painted everything behind the grill but only dusted the radiator to take the sheen off it.
    I also tried to install the Hella 1000 Rallye Black Magic lights. I never checked the difference in size from the 500's. I wanted to take the build to a new level but screwed up. I will go back and get the 500's once I find someone who is interested in buying the Black Magic's.

    I kind of wanted the grillcraft ones but they were kind of pricey for me. I don't even know why I would care about that since I already spent sooo much on other mods already!!!:eek: I might get them down the road and sell off my billet grills.:rolleyes:
