Got the wheels installed this morning. I had them remount the tires with the RWL's in.

Still plan to get the rear wheel liners and looking at a tuner. Kinda thinking about blacking out the mirror caps with Plasti-Dip to see if I like that look. I tried photoshopping it and I think I will.

Couple more mods.

First, I got my SCT X4 from 5-Star this week and loaded their 87 Octane Performance/Tow tune. Really like the added response and power there.

Also picked up some of the black Plasti-Dip to try on my mirrors. I'll see how it holds up but eventually I'll probably either swap them out or paint them with proper paint.

And I mounted my tow hooks on the back

I've kind of got my eye on some of the Raptor/Predator style graphics kits for the back corners of the beds.

Got the rear wheel liners installed this evening. Warmer weather, or at least hotter sun would make this easier but it still wasn't bad.

The wheel well liners look good. I ordered the SCT X4 with 5 Star tunes as well and waiting on it to arrive this week. I think the 87 Performance/Tow is the first one I'm going to try.

Got the graphics installed today. I was really nervous about doing it myself but couldn't find anyone to do it so I ordered a kit and some Rapid Tac installation fluid and got both late last week. Of course right after they showed up someone contacted me with a very reasonable quote to make and install them. I decided I might as well give it a try and I'm glad I did as they came out great. One very mnor mistake where I tried to use heat to work out a small wrinkle/bubble and overheated a small area of the vinyl, but with this pattern I just extended one of the holes a little and no one will ever know.

The graphics turned out great. The black on white is awesome.

I've been going back and forth on whether I want to level the truck and finally decided to order an Auto Spring 1.5" level kit for it. I did some experimenting by jacking up the front and thought 1.5 looked best on my truck--depending on how it has settled its level to 1/2" of rake measured at the top of the wheel wells.

I took it in for an extensive detail job this week and it's still mostly clean.

Still have to get my leveling kit installed and take it in for an alignment. Thinking about a mesh grill like this too.

Personally, I prefer the stock grille. If those studs/rivets weren't all over the front it would look good though.

The truck will look good with the level. Another thought is maybe swapping the tails for some FX/Harley/Raptor ones. I think that would look good with the splash graphics.
