Looks great!!! One suggestion though before you put the front bumper back on. Paint the bumper lift brackets and part of the frame they attach to black so it doesnt stick out when the bumper is back on.

Looks GREAT!!! MY GOD it looks tall!! Oh....and i am getting KM2's next. Thanks for convincing me!




Something to note as well...... take sandpaper or a grinder with a flapwheel disc on it....take that zinc coating off those front bumper brackets. paint dont like to stick to that zinc stuff for too long. paint the brackets. paint your front x-member, then install your bumper. IF those welded on studs break, bolts look WAYY too ugly to me...I used 1/2x1 1/2 allen head bolts on marie's. Very nice and very clean looking....since you'll see it through the hole in the bumper.

Josh still needs to get his tuner. So once he has that it will be back to stock shifts.

OK....seriously....paint those caps the same color as the wheels but with a chrome oval. it's BEGGING for that to happen!! all chrome cap is too much in that area imo....doesn't flow too well with the truck imo...with the DSG and flares and whatnot.

DO IT!

Please remove those tow hooks and don't cut the valance. Or get some level II hooks. Those are just some regular hooks and won't look real good with a cut valance.

But other then that it looks real good.
