    Truck is coming along great man, blacking out those tails will make the tail end come together.
    I did mine full blackout before and went way too dark, ordered LEDs and they barely shone though the tint. :eek:

    So I took the tint off around the reverse, brake, and turn signals. I think it looks pretty good IMHO.

    Theres a silver taco around campus that has that sticker and it looks badass. I don't trust myself to put it on straight though haha. Ive been looking to get some 255/85r16 cooper discoverer st's but i need to get UCA's first to fix my alignment.

    Thanks man! those look sweet, very unique. I wanna get some blacked out led tails from ebay, gotta get some more pressing parts first though.

    Boobs from the first post? haha :cool:

    had a headlight burn out on me, so I got sylvan silverstar zXe headlight bulbs. the light is clearer and i think they are brighter. I also ordered some cheap (very) fog light bulbs from Amazon in "super white" to match the new headlights. The output in the fogs is a little less but i like how they look.

    new headlight bulbs and stock fogs

    with one fog changed

    and with both

    and also went on my first trail ride last weekend to shoe creek, had to avoid some areas but had a great time.

    Good meeting you this weekend!

    FYI, the hose clamp needs to go on the right side of the tailgate for it to be effective.

    Nothing like hearing those sliders get used and not having to worry about anything.
