I got mine off summit, they were a bit pricey but shipped fast and I love them, looks so much nicer with them on than my horribly scratched up bed rails.

I saw how some people are paying good money for black chrome tail pipe tips soo I just painted the end of mine black. I had some flat black spray paint for another project and that looked alright for a few weeks but I went over it with gloss today and I really like it, not bad for .96 cent's

Replaced the stock flasher with an EP27 for my LED's. I removed the plastic panel below the steering wheel, and found a steel one behind it. WTF? Why would Ford do that?

Looking at that black tip got me thinking, how would a piece of chrome look sprayed with a couple coats of nightshade?

A lot of cars have that. It's so the steering column doesn't split your nuts in an accident

Found some small screws that'll work, and reinstalled my mudflaps.
Was gonna do a bit more, but staring hurting a bit too much to want to continue.
Might look into it for tomorrow, IF temps are semi decent. Expecting 6"-12" of snow
Monday night into Tuesday. Believe it when I see it tough!
