Sorry i actually installed my sound system before i had the windows tinted. I have two 10" Alpine Type S sub-woofers with a Bassworx sub box which just goes underneath the back seat. Powered by my Alpine 650 AMP. Which i have had since high school. It hasn't let me down yet.
Next was upgrading the stock tires to something a little beefier. I went with the BF Goodrich All Terrain tires. Upgrading to 285's on my 17 rims which equals about a 33" wide tire. Went with the white lettering on the BFG's
Next thing i did was ordered some black headlights off ebay. Ya i know ebay brands arnt the best but i took my chances. I lost & later had to reseal the lights better since they started fogging up & having condesation. I should have resealed them before i even installed them in the first place but like i said i took my chances. One of them still fogs up a little bit the odd time to this day but its not major.
Next was to black out the taillights as well. I bought a can VHT Nightshades, with some Acrylic Gloss to give them that shiny look in the end. Process for the nightshades was pretty easy. Cleaned the lights up with rubbing alcohol, then wet sanded them. Gave them about 3 coats of nightshades & about another 3 coats of gloss. I also did the third brake light on top of the cab. I taped off the reverse light & the two cab lights on the third break light, that way it still shines through nice and bright without affecting when i back up.
