    Go for it. It's super straightforward and the result looks so much better than you would think for so little investment. Thanks for the compliment on the truck!

    Dipped the grill surround today. Happy with the dip but not sure how I feel about the color with the truck. Thoughts?

    Nice looking truck! The plasti dipped grill definitely looks better than the chrome, but I think color matching might look even better..

    Do you have a link to where you got those taillights? I tinted mine and think I'm going to go the route you went, instead.

    Thanks, and I'm torn on color-matching. I think I'm going to leave the black for a month and see how it grows on me.

    He bumped the price up but still cheaper than a stock pair. I sold mine on there for $120 and they sold in three seconds. Literally. 3 seconds.

    I would most likely be interested, the only thing is mines an 07 would they just be plug and play? Or would I need bulbs?

    Sorry for the delay, I've been out of town and just managed the marathon of getting back thru SFO.

    I've already sold the lights, but yes, they would've been plug and play, no bulbs.

    No problem. Taillights for 05+ are plug and play with the others. The ones I bought came with all bulbs. Two screws and the harness clip and you are done!

    How to plastidip your grille surround:

    Step 1: Tape off grille
    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Remove and clean grille (I used alcohol)
    [​IMG]

    Step 3: First coat, light dusting
    [​IMG]

    Step 4: Second thru fourth coats, progressively heavier, ensuring even coverage in nooks and crannies

    Step 5: Peel tape and enjoy

    Thanks Chad. How big of a pain was the lower Grillecraft to install? Was it worth it? Would you do it again?

    Finally installed my extended brake lines from OCTaco. Pretty straight forward. Look and feel great.

    Make sure you take these suckers off before you undo the lines.

    Thanks. Yours looks good too. I like the color match. I'm dipping my rear bumper black probably this weekend or next. Too much rain this past one...
