Now I did one thing today that I am very pleased about, I bought me a can of plasti dip to test it out. I put it on the tailgate to see what i think about it. I did some research on this stuff, its tougher than paint, but of coarse not as strong as bed liner. But i am planning on doing my whole bed with this stuff. 8 cans will do the whole bed no problem. So about 60 bucks to plasti dip, or about 250 or more for bed liner. Now my friends kept telling me its a stupid idea because it will scratch and stuff. But if it does i will just repatch it, it doesnt have to look perfect, its a truck bed, its going to get used, and plus not many people are able to peer inside my bed lol. But here it is when i did the tailgate today, it really cleaned it up quite a bit. Plus it has more of a grip than paint, so my stuff wont be sliding all over the place.

Oh and i picked up theses side marker lights, i really liked them, however whenever i installed them on my truck, they just didnt go with my truck, so i was highly dissaponted. So instead im wanting to go with some chrome side marker and head lights, does anybody have any suggestions on what would look decent without breaking the bank?

Theses are what i picked up.

LMC Truck has corner lights almost identical to the Lighting for fairly cheap. I got them on mine. There is a picture of the tuck on my profile if you want to see what it would look like

Truck looks great so far. I wouldn't bed line the bed with plastidip the first time you put something heavy it will scratch it off. Save your money and use real bed liner.

I like those side markers. But I suggest buying side markers and headlights together because when you have new side markers and old headlights it looks a little goofy imo.

Yeah I agree. I thought my headlights looked pretty good still,, intill i put those sidemarkers on to see what it would look like. It made the headlights look old as poop.

I was looking into those!


What are y'all's opinion on the projector headlights, I have heard mixed reviews on them, some people love them, others don't. I honestly don't want HIDs only because I hate driving when someone is coming at me with them. I don't want to be blinding people and getting flashed everynight. I live in a rural area, I travel alot at night, nothing but back roads pretty much, and cows and hogs are always out. I want something that will improve my vision while not ruining others.
