    as you can see, it looks pretty good.
    i followed the steps from jhodge83 and tacoskim

    when i sprayed the wheel, it got a little uneven and made spots. my pops told me to use 800 sandpaper and lightly respray with black and that should take care of it. i should be able to get around to that once i get all the wheels back on. ill post a wider shot once i get my flat replaced on the other side and the 2 front wheels finished.

    tips, questions, comments, opinions, etc. are all welcome.

    thanks. lol just noticed the avi, that's gotta be my favorite commercial,
    that little giraffe turning and looking at home when he jumps off the tread
    mill cracks me up.

    Not quite sure what I want to to first! Just got the truck last night, traded
    in my titan for it...still having issues seeing it in the driveway and realizing how
    much smaller this thing is compared to the 4x4 Dbl cab titan! :eek:


    is there a post w/ step by steps on this?

    1. denatured alcohol
    2. sandpaper
    3. self etch primer
    4. paint

    yep, love the looks of these trucks. would like to remove the rake
    look as well, did a level kit w/ the titan but was thinking the Bilstein 5100's
    could solve that issue nicely from what I've read, just don't know if they
    change the ride at all.
