    Thanks, I've only had it on for about 2 months now but they haven't peeled, bubbled or had anything go wrong with them. Like I told you before, it's definitely all about the prep work and getting that 1st coat down on there with no runs (and I like the 1st coat nice & thick).

    If you happen to mess up and peeling it isn't that easy then just spray some WD40 on the plasti-dip and it will wipe right off.

    The gauge is battery operated (good for something like 5 years) and then I just cut a rectangular hole out of the clock plastic, popped in the temperature gauge and then routed the wire and metal end where it tells the temp. down to around my bumper somewhere.

    Gun Rack

    I used two original holes that were already drilled in my bedliner/the roof. For the bottom of the gun rack I drilled (2) holes and threaded sheet metal screws through the rear wall of the extra cab.
