They look good, it's probably hard to see the crcks unless you're close up. And I like the mounting locationg for the switch, it fits perfectly. All the bezels I've seen in 2001-2005's have that rubbery coating that always flakes off, my 2002 looks like that, and my sister's 2003 does as well.

Overall the front end looks nice. Lets see a more 45 degree pic to show off the corners. Did you mask the reflector and paint the rest flat black? I think it looks neat and the truck flows well.




But I don't really understand the remote switch. Your radio doesn't have one built in? All I've ever messed with, have radio switches and it turns on the amp when the radio turns on.....off when the radio turns off.

So do you have to flip the switch every time you want the sub on?

Makes sense...


I much rather prefer my remote bass **** or even just changing the bass headunit settings. I'd rather not lose a power outlet when it just takes 2 seconds to turn the bass down(or off) on my head unit(my most inconvient way). But hey...if it works for you, more power to ya! lol.
