you should paint that rusty thing in the 2nd pic black, its got what looks like a disc on top of it and it sits next to that plastic cover that says 4.0 on it. I used rust oleum primer on mine, in 36K miles i have only painted it 2x. other than that it looks good.

Yea, thats the EGR valve, I guess I could take it off & paint it with some high temp paint since it gets nice & hot.

use that high temp kind thats special for grills and stuff... there is a paint I bought for painting headers... after its painted you have to bake it in oven, or bolt bacvk onto truck and idle for ~15 mins. that stuff is strong...

Looks good man! One thing though, your rotors are on the wrong sides.

Yea, if you go to the Brembo site it says your right but other sites say different. I guess Brembo wants the heat to go from outside to inside whereas others say from inside to outside. I installed as per the manuf. of the rotors, my car with all 4 rotors are running in the same direction as the 2 on the truck but they are all from the same manuf. I believe the difference would be curved slots & straight slots, mine being straight. I think the big thing is the cooling veins in between the inner & outer rotor surface which is what I went by in the instructions. They seem to work fine so I'll not worry about it.
Check out all the pics of the direction of the Rotors on the other cars/trucks that are using the same brand as I. http://www.rotorpros.com/cust_rides.htm

This is for you Dave, its funny that the black grille paint comes out slightly brown? But it should look a lot better once the Chrome cover is on the Diaphram part on the EGR valve:



Heres a pic from Underdog with the EGR unpainted:
