    wat?
    Well, i took a page out of a couple peoples books and cut down the stock mudflaps, and i'm adding pb2themax inspired bed cargo lights and reverse lights. the reverses are installed and i'll get a pic tonight and show how they look. i havent tackled the cargo one yet, but they should be easier. and the flaps are cut...kinda productive day i guess.

    the blue ones are the reverse and the smaller ones are the cargo's...in case anyone was wondering.

    EDIT: ndcouch...sorry about that last pic being sooo black...lol

    I dont know why you're appologizing, i'm all about blacking out a truck. I'd love to do to mine what you did to yours. I'm actually pretty jealous, your's looks great! are you planning on doing anything to the rims? New ones or powdercoating those? If you did you would be invisible at night

    ndcouch: i'm planning on powdercoating the stock ones and keeping them for a while. last i heard, tacorock was trying to sell his 22" kmc rockstars...lol...big and black...

    SR5: all i did was trace on a pattern w/ a pencil and then i used a combination of a box cutter and a pair of tin snips. the stock ones were just too long for my liking...like 2" off the ground. i took probably 4-5" off them. i couldnt find my tape to measure them exactly. once i had the front ones cut, i used the excess to perfectly trace the rear pattern.

    Looks good.

    I found generic round farm tractor lights to be pretty bright for backup lights.
