Thanks for the compliment. The flares are the Bushwacker extend a flare's and I believe they are 1.75". The stock flares do need to come off. I held the flares up to the truck and marked the flares, then used a die grinder to trim them. The rubber trim helps to cover up any small imperfections.
The HID's install pretty easily. The speakers are good and the amp is mounted behind the rear seat on the cab back wall.
Good look with the truck, be sure to post up pictures of it.
Nice looking truck. I also have a 09 black platinum. I just put a 6" fabtech lift kit on with 20" rbp 94r wheels and 35 " toyo mt's and a rbp rx2 Grill. I have a few questions for you. The flares are they 1.75"? I saw you took the stock flares off, but not the molding. It suggests to take that off, how did you get that to fit so nice? The lights, where they hard to install? How do you like those speakers, and where did you put the amp? I will probably come up with more questions, thanking you in advance. Steve
