lol this would have never happened if my friends didnt convince me to go wheel in the snow lol

once i move back to vegas at the end of this week, the snow wont be a problem, and the new bumper will incorporate some good armor :)

I was liking the other set better until I saw your pic. They look a lot better than the pic in the eBay auction. Can't wait to see them on the truck. How dark are you going with the niteshade?

probably about as dark as my tails are now. depends on how bright these things are. if theyre bright enough, i'll go a bit darker. but right now its lookin like 2 coats of the nightshades, and a few coats of clear
