Before and After

Had some rust showing so got nearly 1/2 the truck repainted and decided to go with new decals and wheels/tires as well as niteshade the tails.

If you don't mind me asking, how much for the paint and who did it? Looks good by the way.

Local guy in town did it for cash $1400.

Repainted all 4 flares, both bedsides, tailgate, bottom of 3 doors all rockers and sills, as well as both front fenders where the flares rubbed through the paint.

Dealership wanted $600 for one bedside so I figure it was a pretty good deal.

Nice truck.
I was set on some KM2s but for the price, the ice and snow we get here and for how often I ever go offroad the ATs made the most sense.

looks good! Love the black on black, just get some black headlights/corners and your set! Stickers made a HUGE difference.

Way better man, good work. I like the looks of the new black wheels with the ATs on there...good choice. And the decal with the tinted tails makes a huge difference

Now tint those windows to 5% and it will be way better

I got a local shop to make them up. You can't tell in the pic but the colors are tinted alittle green and I'm not that happy with it, so I'm getting my money back and having another shop make up some more.

I'll have to see what the new shop produces but if people are interested I could look into getting some more made up.
