Is your truck a daily driver? Not sure how shaving the door handles will be, do you have plans to lower, wheels tires? Your truck looks pretty stock now, shaved door handles might not look right on it ... never though of just color matching or Escalade?

As for the rear, do it, will look awesome :head:

You could shave the 3rd brake light if you don't like that either.

As for cost go, i didnt exactly do everything you will be but you'll be able to get a good idea of cost for what you doin.

I paid 55 and hour for labour and the finial cost for gettin my tailgate shaved (i actually went out a purchased an aftermarket one for like 60 bux cause my old one was shit, it was just the sheet metal frame and skin and cost a lil cheaper for me to have shaved) rollpann molded, tailights shaved, stakepockest shaved,four frenched in 89 caddy buckets, and a patch pannel on my left rear quarter pannel ran me 1,800 w/o parts. just i guess an idea of how not high it will be if that helps. This is also without pain, i just shot some flat blue over it the previous day to give it some sort of a uniformed look.

If your gonna shave everything all up, you might as well put cadallac tail lights in the rear. They look sick and there original :drool:

dont think so, i see many cars without the third light, i think you just need two.

I would personally lower or bag my truck first. I mean how often to you see a truck that is not lowered or bagged with all the work done if your not going to lower it dont do the door handles i dont think it would look right have someone photoshop it for you before you do anything and it should give you a good idea of what it will look like. This is just my opinion, i wish i could do all that to my truck

Please, please, make sure that a competent body shop does it or you might end up having it done all over again.......
