BTW looks like you got the same issue as me with the gap between the endcaps and headlights. I still gotta readjust mine.

eh, that = $$$$$$$

The guy who had a set of them wanted $75 and they needed to be painted too. Plus buying the fog lamps themselves forget that.


Plans for this truck are
Waiting for a white bowtie to come in, im trading a guy my stocker for his white one that he had painted.
2.5" ccm leveling kit
295/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers
New rims in the more distant future unless I find a good deal.

and either a superchager for the v6, or a v8 swap once the warranty is out about 32k miles from now.

should of just bought a v8 truck. would of been cheaper then trying to supercharge the v6 or a v8 swap. prob would of had the stock painted/chrome front end the same as it is now as well.

that looks great all white?

Have you given any thoughts to adding lowering shackles in the back to level it out?

I have a used (1 month) Belltech kit for sale if you do.
only going up with this one, i had a leveled long bed before, it was a 15 second truck so I went down with it.

Hey those are my old bumper caps! Truck looks 10000x better with the painted caps and bumper. I say painted handles and mirror caps next, cruise eBay for them.

You know those caps are more badass than your average bumper cap cuz they came off my truck right? Enjoy them :crazy:

Had some issues, i was originally going to go with a chrome bumber bar. company shipped me the wrong one so I just got it painted. So basically I had 2 w/t bumpers, I already had sold the stock one I had.

Endcaps are new. They were black ones from silveradodude, Got those painted to match.

The grill i bought from a member at FSC and swapped it with my w/t one.

I planned on doing more with it, til some dbag in an expedition thought it be a good idea to turn left in front of me. Locker, High Ration Rockers, Long tubes, and some laughing gas.
