Next year I might go with the Blitzkreig mid travel kit, so for now yes the fabtech will stay on.

Maybe it's just my eyes or my monitor, but the color looks way off? The work and the truck look great, but the color looks wrong.

How do you like them? Since they are on the small side, can you see okay out of them?

The paint on the fiberglass is going to not match 100% with the steel hood and the rest of the body, at certain angles it's going to give off a different shade even at the angles I'm taking the pictures at. The truck got finished last Thursday and it sat at the body shop for 4 days not being touched or driven, my paint is still fresh and I have to take it back in a month for him to wet sand it.

If your a tower then they may not be the best, I still get great visibility out of them and adjusted them so I can barely see the side of bed and get one full veiw of the lane on either side of me, I also added a 270mm Broadway Mirror to help me see my rear corner bed sides. I use my mirrors and turn my head all the time so for me these mirrors work great. They plug right in for factory power mirrors harness and it's easy to wire up the led blinkers and heated portion just takes running the wire to make it look nice! Also if you don't want the heat you can get them with just the turn signals or just the heat. I got mine from Auto Anything.com free shipping and no tax.

The hood looks great man, but i'm not a fan of the fenders. Then again i've never been a fan of the pre runner fenders. Otherwise I like the truck a lot

I like it a lot, but it would look 100% better if the front had a wider trac width, but you should get that with the mid travel kit.

I know you guys are either going like it or hate it, but next summer I hope to go with the Blitzkrieg Midtravel Kit that will bump my stance 2.5" wider perside and 14" of travel. I will most likely go with the Dixon Bros Cantilever Setup and Deaver Springs with a custom shackle in the rear. I don't want to cut my perfectly good bed up and run a bed cage, or just ditch the bed and run a full caged rear.

Might do the rear I don't know yet of how far I want to go. They did. I'm going to take it back have them do a final wet sand and buff.
