Thanks Marie... Ever since I have been put on the "NO MOD" edict the flat black has been my bestfriend.. Btw I had to bake my lights at 220 degrees for 17 min. for the seal to get soft enough to break free.. The key is "patience", you should be fine....

love mine, but for some reason can't get mine to seal 100% and they get some condensation in them. However, I can't really complain about it, there is SO much moisture and humidity out here lately...it's damn near impossible! Moving to Vegas later this year will solve it :)

I think they are sealed okay, it's just I can't install them back in the truck once totally dry without getting humid humid air in there

Hey marie.. I'm pretty sure if you had a quick run to the JY/UPullIt, You can probably find one of those bar coverings like I have on my truck, simple pop in.. looks like your truck already has the holes for it I think.. give a shout out on the idea! :-)

I've been looking for a yard around here but they closed the only one I knew of that wasn't all imports. I have a couple things I want to pickup but I didn't even know they made covers for though... impressive
