New mirrors for the truck

I just bought some 06+ mirrors today from the dealer and installed them. I like them so much better than the old flags I used to have, makes the truck look a lot better also.

At the beginning of the day:

All done:




And just to show how far my truck has come, a picture from not long after I bought it.

Looks better, but I would have got the round pre-'06 style.

I used Krylon semi-gloss black with Valspar flat clear, 3 coats of black and 2 coats of clear, matches the mirrors pretty good I think.

I didnt pay $100 per mirror, thats just what they would cost for the average person to walk in and buy them.

The mirrors made a dramtic difference. I hate those flag mirrors. I had them on my 94, luckily all the edge models had the black round power look a like mirrors.

What do you plan on doing with the bumper valence?

Also how did you lift your truck?

I need to get a new valance, broke it when I crashed it last year. I straightened out the chrome bumper but just havent bought a new valance yet.

I cranked the t-bars to make the truck level, there is no "real" lift on it.
