Cleaned the truck up today.

Well I was bored and it was a nice day so I thought I would clean up the truck and take some pictures. The lighting was perfect until I got to where I was going to take the pictures so sorry if there is a couple bad ones in there. Then on my way home my brake caliper braket bolt fell out. First I wass a big racheting feeling. Got out looked at everything and looked good. Then got back in and drove on until I hit the brakes again and My front right tire locked up. Got out and looked at it realize It was messed up thinking on how I should get home to get the right stuff to fix it and the talk show host for a radio station shows up and got a ride from him and got it all fixed up.

This suff works great.

The truck is looking sharp Paul. I like the tool box/bed rail mod, I did the same to mine.

Get some gap guards and it will look even better.

I know how you feel. My passenger fender is a different shade of DWB than the rest (donno how they managed to f*ck that up).

I have a friend that restores cars up in the mountains that I will have him paint it. Either red, white, black.

With my own two hands. I love metal work.. And that bumber looks perfect.

Once I find me a tube bender I will have sliders and a front bumber to.

Looks good! Painting all the plastic black looks great. The Duplicolor products do a good job.

I hadn't said anything yet, but I really like your truck. I like the b/L and the fact that you have stock wheels on it. I think it looks good and tall, without the wide wheels/tires sticking out. I think the "tall" stance you have, and the "just right" amount of tire sidewall looks great together.

did you spray all the fender flares with the bumper coating? Does it leave a smooth finish like paint?
I used the trim paint on mine last summer and they look like sh*t already

Yea I did. I have the XLT flares. Looks like stock paint just black not grey.

Not bad man. I would like to suggest something though... Lose the hitch and incorporate it into the bumper.. That will clean the rear up so much!

I want to but I like having the hitch for a recovery point. I should just put hooks on my bumper.

My main goal was to get a good picture of denver with my truck. But got to the top of this hill and it looked tiny. You can tell in my 2-4 picture.
