    Looks great. This picture alone has convinced me to do this. What did you use? It's matte correct?

    Thanks! Picked up Rustoleum bombs at Autozone... Sandable Primer and Automotive Acrylic Enamel... Flat Black... Sanded everything down with 320, then cleaned it up good with thinner before and after masking it off... Got 5 light coats out of the can.

    Looks great to me! Once I didn't it a couple places I had stuff installed thought it was a new model upgrade for the tacos. I'm running those hankooks too, they last forever it seems haha

    Awesome. Really clean. I wanted to do this in light grey on my BSP. I have since, gone another route though. Perhaps I will go back to this route... :D

    Looks great! Your whole truck looks clean. I just painted mine as well, but used the famed plasti-dip to see if I like it prior to permanent paint. The roof rack looks great as well! If you don't mind me getting off topic a bit, what the details on the roof rack?

    I couldn't understand why your taco looks extra clean. Then I realized you had no plates. I wish my state wasn't so uptight. :(

    Thanks guys! Glad to hear that the hankooks last forever! As far as the yakima racks, I'm pretty sure they are the basic Q-towers with 48" bars and 36" fairing... Copperhead bike rack on one side right now. I haul the kayak on the other side this time of year, then the powderhounds for the skis in the winter... As far as the liscense plate, I wish I was as lucky to live in a state where I didn't have to have the front. I just had it off for painting and hadn't put it back on yet. Thanks again for all the feedback!

    No lift yet... I'm sure it'll end up that way, just had funds tied up in other expenses lately. Isn't homeownership grand!? I had a 3" revtek on my '01... Probably wont go any bigger with this one since its my DD.
