    New wheels and tires, vent visors, wade sure-fit mats, and tinted the roll-ups.

    Can someone point me in the direction of a thread that shows the process on blacking out the badges?

    There's info somewhere in here. But I found it easy to just tape off where the badges are before you remove them (so you'll know where to stick them back on), use a hair dryer to heat up the adhesive and fishing line to remove them. Once they're off just sand, prime, and paint then use 3m double sided adhesive to stick them back on. Clean the surface off before putting them back on.

    Thanks Fiend. I've looked into the plastidip thing, but that seems like a cheezy way to do it. Sanding/painting sounds better.

    I sanded and painted mine but I was posting that because somewhere in there people explain the debadging process. I think there's a thread somewhere all about debadging as well.

    Brought truck in for driveline vibe when the gas pedal is being pressed and a small roaring sound. Test driver suspects wheel bearing roar and a bad driveshaft. Waiting on diagnosis now. Shes a 2005 with 213000 miles....maybe its a midlife crisis, lol.

    yes
    That's a big chunk of money, but it's really not much over the life of the truck. At least you took care of it before it took care of you.
