I hit a snowbank when it was -30 and it shattered. And have been putting off getting another until i decide exactly what i am going to do, was considering making a custom bumper like those monster bumpers but giving up on that idea i think. But now i think i am going to replace the valance and get it sprayed in black Line-X to give it some more strength and get the flares done to match. And possibly a black Westin bull bar.

My friend said he saw a Black one a few years back in Edmonton. But hasn't seen it since.
I have been considering painting mine black!

It took a bit more more messing around and $$$ to get it up and running than I planned but now that its done I'm happy with it, would have been cheaper if i had waited to try and find a reg cab short box version and did the install myself with clamps,, but whatever, its done, and I love it.

Excuse the dirty truck, all the snow is melting trying to keep it clean is hopeless. I will get some better pics when next time i give it a good wash.
was it hard to do? how much cutting was done?

The only thing that needed to be cut down was the pipe going into the muffler from the cats. head pipe i think its called?? I was intending on being able to do it myself but due to the bends and shape of the pipe i realized i needed another one or that one reshaped. And i wanted to have it welded in anyways do i brought it into a shop that does custom exhausts to have a new pipe made and the rest of it welded together. It cost a bit of money but they did a really nice job and i am happy with the end result. Welds are allot nicer than clamps!

I am thinking about cutting out the cat's and replacing them with high flow's or just a piece of pipe. so i can clamp them in if needed. Is that a 3rd cat or just a collector where they come together? And also header opinions! I've heard they dont do much for these engines. And i dont want to drop a pile of money on some pretty jba ceramics if they wont do much.
thanks for the comments as well!
