    Sweet. It really adds to the overall feel of the truck when you have that chrome yellow on the inside and outside.

    Well with the radio bezel you first have to get that rubbery material off of it. If you dont the paint will peel instantly. Once I got that off I did 3 coats of spray can primer and light sanding. After the last primer and sanding I went straight to the color spray can. I went to Advanced Auto Parts and they have the exact Chrome Yellow that the truck is in the rattle cans. I did 4 coats of the yellow (not heavy coats, just light even coats). Depending on if you got a high gloss or semi gloss yellow paint you may or may not want to do a coat or tow of clear coat gloss. I personally did 2 coats of clear coat from a rattle can to protect the color of the paint from abuse of fading.

    Sweet man. Im really excited about upgrading to them. I dont do a ton of offroading but i still get to do some from time to time. I am mostly on the road. I dont intend on cranking the t-bars either. I dont have mud flaps on the front wheel wells because the little push tabs snapped out when I was trying to remove them for the Rancho shock install.

    Hey man, how do you like the Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires? Im assuming that the ones you have are 31's on the stock edge height. Im looking to get those exact tires for my 03 Edge in the next few days.
