    There are some reg cab trims that had that from the factory. I got it from a guy that works at a dealership in cali.

    He is oh so envious.. :D

    Fastest 0-60 that I've recorded is 4.9 seconds.

    As soon as I get my fuel pump installed, but I might wait until after summer when temps come back down.

    Yep, both grilles are ebay grilles. I had the first one I had powdercoated black.

    Damn! got busy bowling that afternoon and totally spaced it. :mad:

    I'll get it next time (might need to set up some reminder thing for me, lol).

    I'm hoping to be in the mid to high 400rwtq range in the low-mid range (TONS of low end power right there). Peak HP will be low right now, as my exhaust needs to be overhauled. But I would guess in the mid 300's as of now. Should be in the 400's once the exhaust gets done.
