I tinted my front side lights, masking off the yellow reflectors and the back of cab brake light. Still have not done the headlight mod out of pure old risk adversion.

The drivers side lens warped ever so slightly. You can't tell when it's put together with the housing but it still bugs me.

The moral of the story is don't attepmt the headlight mod with brand new lamps that have never seen the light of day.

Took about an hour to re-position the rear bumper so both sides were level and even, and removed the front license plate assembly to spray paint satan black. I must say, I like the trucks look MUCH better without the front license plate so once I get my flog light equipped valence (assuming they aren't pre-drilled?) its staying plate-less. For now though, since there are holes, I'll re-attach the license tomorrow

Tomorrow i plan on taking off the front bumper/mud flaps and spraying them satan black as well.

Hey Tanner,

I just took a look at your photography at your photostream link. I am really impressed! Beautiful work.

finally got my interior light fixed, got the stock radio working an converted it to a CD player. =) fuses were out on both. changed them an everything works like a charm. =) the door buzzer works too. which i belive is the most irratating sound on the planet. oh well though, better to have annoying door buzzer with mods than have no mods at all. lol
