Thanks man, previous owner let his asian wife learn how to drive on it. which is where it got its "body mods". When i went to see the truck before buying she strait up admitted all the scuffs and dents were her fault. I plan to pop out that dent next weekend. :)

I used engine spray paint, cleaned the rims, and sanded the area i wanted to paint. Turned out much better than expected.

I'm just saving money to fix the dent on my front bumper, and then i'll spray some gray liner on both bumpers and black paint my rims.... I sure hope they look as good as yours..
