    Hey all,

    just traded my '05 AC for this today. Ive been waiting ~2 weeks for all the parts to come in and install, the sunroof took the most time.

    So pumped, I couldn't help but show 'er off
    Lemme know what you think. I'm thinking of throwing on a grilecraft next, probably not satoshi'ed tho, as I'd like to keep my stock grill intact. Also, this OEM grille has a nice silver metallic finish, which I like much more than the flat black that was on my '05, hmmm

    thanks guys,

    BTW due to the sunroof install, I have an overhead console sitting (map lights and sunglass holder assembly) here that had to be removed. I have no idea how much its worth but I'd be happy to ship it off to someone, just a thought.

    Also, if i crank the wheel over alll the way, i get a tiny bit of rubbing on the mud flap on the inside where its mounted to the fender. You think it's an issue? Anyone else have experience w/ this?
    I'll post pictures tomorrow when I can, it's barely an issue, and I dont mind taking the front flaps off I guess, might make the truck look meaner anyway, lol

    Yea, I want to take 'em off, but I'm a little worried about scratching my paint. Although, from the other threads I've read, it looks like people don't have any problems in doing so. live on a dirt road, and lots of the roads around Santa Fe and NM are dirt

    Badass truck for sure!

    TBH, the mudflaps will scratch the paint themselves about 1/4" in where they touch the fenders if you leave them on. (I know mine did for sure after 38k on the odo) So... you either have virtually guaranteed gouging or take the risk the rocker panels will get a few dings..
