Thanks man. I'm digging it too. It came out better than I thought.

Today I went to get the bed cap put on, and the installer brought it to my attention that there were a couple gouges in the paint. The choices were either A) send it back and get it fixed; or B) get a $50 credit. I chose A. When you pay as much as was paid for this thing, a credit like that doesn't make up for it. So, the next few days I have some work to do; like installing a shorty antenna, putting the programmer on, the LED reverse lights, and interior dome lights; and then putting everything inside the bumper and mounting it.

So, here are some pics of the new and the old. Don't mind the dent in the 06, I got broadsided by a deer who didn't know that you're not supposed to run into the side of a moving vehicle.

I got lucky that I was able to find someone close by to do the work while I was gone, and they did a great job. He doesn't even want me driving it in the mud; says it's too pretty to get dirty, lol.

Well, what he doesn't know is, I got a new camera and wanted to test it out. In order to do that, as Brad Paisley says, "get a little mud on the tires"...or snow in this case.

I'm just passing a little time with these. The bumper came in, I just have to install it now. I installed the stubby antenna yesterday, and found out I got the wrong reverse LEDs for the Recons (doh! ), so I had to order the correct ones, and just ordered some SteelCraft tail light guards too (painted black of course). I'm hoping it warms up soon so I can actually do some real installations on the truck (It's been low to mid teens here; below zero for the Canuckistanians here)

Thanks Bee. I just hope the other parts that are going on aren't going to make it look to over the top now.

Thanks man, it was fast and furious when I was at work, but now that I'm at home and am using it, it's a slow process. I got the cap installed today though, and it makes the truck look smaller and bigger at the same time, if that makes any sense. I'm thinking more lift is needed, lol.

Sorry, the truck is dirty because I have a gravel/dirt driveway, and spring has made just driving in and out a mini mudding adventure .




I'm going to try and get the grille insert put in shortly, and I've got the front bumper here at the house, but I'm going to get it Line-X'd because the paint on it isn't that thick or strong, and already has some areas down through the primer to the metal just from shipping, and I don't feel like sending it back for another few weeks.

great looking bumper! I eventually want to go down the same road. Thinking about a winch in the future?

I've already got the winch. I have a 12,500 lb Superwinch Talon with synthetic rope ready to go in. I've been trying to make this truck be a self-contained recovery unit. I got stuck a couple of times in my 06 (it was 2wd though), and since I live so close to the northwoods, I want to be able to get myself out of damn near anything I may wander into.

Awesome! I look forward to seeing the bumper installed!
