    Looks good, But im not feeling where the license plate is located on the windsheild...Also, Houston Police will pop you for that. I got popped for having my front plate in my windsheild on my F250...IDK just a thought...


    Anyways, Good start. Get a lift and some tires and you'll be looking sweet.

    Yeah thats a concern I've had. It came with no holes in bumper and I cant bring myself to drilling into the nice bumper. I actually asked an HPD officer how likely I was to get ticketed for it. He said, "Most cops wont pull you over for just that, but if you get pulled over for any other reason expect a ticket on the plate location too."

    Ya, That's true aswell. My dad is an HPD officer, He told me the old timer cops won't care. But the rookies will do anything for a ticket.:mad: Like a fresh officer pulled me over for doing 5 over no visible front plate and window tint...BS.

    Well back on track...Nice truck.

    No, because inside the bullet casing is a plastic mold with threads. You can see them at the bottom (in the pic) of the casing, where the bullet would be set with the casing.

    1. Took out my dremel
    2. Put on the cut wheel
    3. Measured how short I wanted it and marked it where to cut
    4. Cut with dremel
    5. Put cut end of piece i cut off in vice with ball end pointing down (basically upside down)
    7. Loosely gripped pliers on shaft of antenna right underneath ball on top of antenna (in this case since upside down the pliers were actually above the ball)
    8. Hit pliers with a hammer and ball popped right off
    9. Put a drop of superglue in the balls hole
    10. Put ball on new cut end of antenna
    11. Tapped it on ground a couple times to help it set
    12. Reinstalled on car
