    This is the first mod I went with after visiting here. I had to do a few things different due to the fact of the cover. But the out come was worth it. The holding bolts were welded to the bracket, so just spin the wing nuts off and you are good to go.

    Next came the grill, it's from Carriage Works, somewhat heavy and thick.
    I cut the inside off with a fine tooth modeling saw. Cut's were clean with little sanding.
    I put the grill in the tub and wet sanded the black areas to get the smooth finish for painting.

    Like most peopel who lifted their ride I had some rubbing. I removed the front flaps, plus had to make a notch in the inner flares.
    When the flap was removed WOW that ugly line, I had some 1" pin strip in a color that matched close. So I did a contour cut on the tape and covered the lines on both sides. I also did the same thing below the door seals for some extra protection.

    My next project, behind the grill light mod, seen it here and needed to do it. Due to my grill I could not hang them like the others. So I had to come up with something new. I wanted to center them on the grill, so with Alum. stock and oversizing some holes I came up with this.

Custom Sock bed decal for Michele
    Of course with lights you need switch's, but why get one when I can fill all the holes. Far left hand side is the grill lights, the center is going to be for a "military black-out light" for the bed, the one on the far right is going to be back up light. Both are in the process of being worked out now.
