    so im thinking about plasti-dipping my chrome rims and going with some sort of new headlights, possibly clear corners. what do you guys think about the new look vs the current look? anybody gone with clear corners on their truck? do you like them/have any complaints? if i go with those, im kinda worried about passing inspection, thoughts?

    Try it with plasti dip first to see if you like it. Then you can remove the plasti dip and do it for real! Good luck

    Paint the wheels, or experiment with Plasti-dip first if you aren't sure.

    I would say BHLM since you have a black truck. But Roy (Veinguy) has all clear headlights, you can have a clear lense as long as the bulb is colored.

    This is Roy's truck with clear headlights:

    i might look into the bhlm. do you know if he just took out the yellow corners and then resealed them or if he actually got new reflector lenses?

    I was there when he installed them so I know that he bought them on eBay. Not sure if he ever had any issues with them or not. But like any eBay lights, definitely have to seal them up some more...

    Something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2005...ptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

    that stuff looks really cool...i like the flatter black for rims, but for badges im definitely looking into that.
