    Do you know what paint code they used for your rear bumper? It looks really nice.

    I would never buy a truck with a dealer tag on it. Just before I sign the papers, I tell them it needs to come off.

    I offered on my last truck to drive away with it on there but needed an extra $250 off the price. If I'm going to advertise for them, they better pay me for it. They removed the tag.


    Badass looking truck!

    Thanks everybody,

    Actually tomorrow is partial debaging day:) Dealer sticker is the first thing to come off.

    As far as the paint code, dunno. Told the guy at the shop to match it. He did look on the inside of the front door jam, its there on the side. Only cost me $75.00

    The tires I love so far. They suprisingly are not very loud. Not any louder than the Pro Comp A/T's that I just took off.

    Next, just waiting on the Mr. Marv box to get here. Hopefully by Friday:confused:

    dude, me too, me too!

    too bad I'm in Fort Worth, I'm going to redo the line-x on my bumper this weekend if I can't find a shop to powder coat it

    how hard was it to remove the rear bumper?

    p.s. your truck looks badass

    I've taken the plastic off before, it's pretty easy. This time I want to remove the entire chrome bumper cover to spray line-x on (I don't want to risk overspray getting on my truck by leaving the bumper on).

    Looks like I'll be trying to figure it out this weekend!

    yeah, taking off the actual bumper seems easier than taking off the plastic pieces. i was going to do the same thing (bed liner that is) until i found this guy. from the research i did on the bed liner, it should look pretty damn good:)

    the line-x does look really good, unfortunately I did a crap job prepping the bumper and it started to peel after a few months

    so this time I'm doing to prep, prep, and more prep then reapply the liner
