I hated my valence. I replaced it twice and then gave up. It was poorly designed in the first place. The 01 bumper looks better on our year front ends anyway.

One of the first things I did to my truck after I got it was pull the valance off. I don't like those things.

Tinted the rear glass.
Not bad for doing it by myself, for the first time ever.
20%. thinking of doing drivers and passenger window the same.



With side window comparison.

Long time no see bump.

Wheels are on Backorder (dafuq?) should seem them bitches about 1st or second week of March.

Tires soon after.

Then left.
Then camber kit.
so on and so forth.

This weekend its getting new hubs and CV shafts. I'm going to convert it to the Exploder setup so i don't have to deal with PVH anymore.
Also getting a new pinon seal, Diff cover gasket. and fresh fluid.
