    Thanks

    I have the Toytec Ultimate lift 3". So far I love the retros. I've still got a little bit of up/down adjusting to do but they are working fine where they are at. They weren't too bad to install. I think the hardest part is adjusting the rotation of the projector, but if you have a good flat wall to shine on, it would make it way easier. I was trying to use a piece of plywood to adjust mine, but I finally got it close enough lol. I used krylon fusion satin black.

    Here are a couple pics of the lights on the truck and some shining on some trees before I got the rotation right. I still want to paint my 4" fogs with the yellow tint. I might do that this weekend. I also got a call yesterday from CBI and they were finishing up my sliders, so hopefully they shipped today and I get them next week.

    Me and my dad also just picked up a new toy. It needs a few things but it doesn't need anything big. I've already ordered a winch and cv guards for it.

    Thanks. Yea I'm pretty excited about it. Although I can't ride it right now becuase we found a rear caliper broke loose, but I have one ordered and it is suppose to be in friday. So I'll be able to ride it this weekend.

    They are CBI Bolt-on's and I'm using the rustoleum bed liner. That's what I have on my front and rear bumpers also.

    That explains the full paint then. I went with weld on's and will be using the rustoleum. I've used it on about 1/2 my truck so far and its holding up pretty well.

    Yea it holds up decent. The thing I like is when you get a scratch, it touches up really well.
