    Painted badges. Bedlined grille, wheels and lower valence. Billies 5100 @.85 up front. Dodger Jack Ball Mod. Custom trail damaged rear bumper (for the time being). Lil LED light bar on grill. Hard-wired Radar Det. Custom Projector fog lights, Anytime Fog Mod, HIDS, White LED accent lighting on a Single post double toggle swicht, so they light up wit my door/dome light, or always on, or never on. LED map and dome lights.
    well i didnt sand or scuff mine, i just used a self eitching primer after i took off my wheels and cleaned them good, two coats of black pait, topped with two coats of spray bedliner. Mines held up pretty good for how much i venture off road.

    but if u change ur mind, and u wana take it off, i dunno if the stuff u use will mess with ur paint or protection layer of whatever they top if off the current rims u have.

    i guess u could plati-dip to get a feel for it
