Those flares look awesome!!! I'd get some of they weren't so expensive!

Awhile back ago, I changed out my headlights for blacked out ones with clear corners and did the full hid/ led convert. Tonight I did the blinker mod. Doesn't work exaclty right with corners being led and all, but that's okay :-)

Yeah I assume it will just become "normal".

I can't believe the difference it has made though. My acceleration from a dead stop is like night and day, and it also seems like it has made my transmission run smoother in the lower gears.

It's friggin awesome.

Got the TPMS light last night with the new tires. Thought maybe having all the originals in the bed since I didn't have time to store them before going to work might have confused the system.

Noooope! Got the light again today. F%&$ing TPMS. Back to the tire dealer tomorrow before work... :-/

For going onto white that's not bad for a first coat... I'd do at least three or four coats though.

Oh yeah man definitely.

I get all the spray on liner for free, I'll probably do 5 solid coats because I'm very OCD.... My wheels have 15 coats on em total lol, primer, actual paint, protective enamel and the clear coat lol.

Any suggestions on what to use as protective over the bed liner?

Clear coat or is there something else out there that could be better?

Protective enamel?

You won't be able to coat over the bed liner... You could have it sprayed in a UV protectant layer from Line-X, but that will be costly...
