Tint looks good. I'm not a big fan of the 4x4 emblem, but that is personal preference. I would also take off the dealer sticker.

I'm not sure how you would do it. Maybe just peel it off and then use some kind of solvent that won't hurt paint to get the adhesive off. Alcohol maybe? I'm not sure because I use one of these to get my decals off:

Your finger nail. No joke. It's a piece of cake to remove.

well i got the dealer sticker off. but I dont feel like takin a pic. It looks much cleaner. I used my own method "wd-40 and small stick of square of wood,(i used the handle of a small wire brush) soaked the decal with wd then used a dull edge of the wood and pushed hard against the body and against the edge of the decal and it started peelin and i grabbed it with my finger nail. then after the sticker was gone, i used wd again and sprayed it on the adhesive that was left and and used a towel and rubbed it and i kept repeating that until all the adhesive was gone.

what % tint did you throw on there?
keep the front plate, if i wasnt required by law to have a front plate i would have that one on there (i dont like the double stacked front plates everyone around here has)
so i comprimised... ill get pics tomorrow, it nothing spectacular but i like it, i get alot of compliments, especially for being in ohio.

sorry for jacking your thread but it erks me when people open there mouths about other things that isnt in the point of interest,
especially things that have meaning to somebody like that what ever it maybe. and thats all im saying on that subject.

just my 2 cents worth

JRacer, I have a side question. How are those tires off road. I have the same BFG Land Terrains and was wondering what your opinion on them. Also have you taken them in the snow at all?

Nice. Never lose the flag. It's about time we remembered where we came from and think about how great it would be to get back. Heritage not hate.
