For all you skeptics of plastidip, my emblems and nerf bars are all dipped, I just went through a high pressure car wash at the gas station, and my dip is still in perfect condition. The stuff is amazing!

[MENTION=112981]eg78[/MENTION] ...

Just offering my opinion here ... hope it's well received.

1. The nerf bars look good dipped because it got rid of the chrome (which is out of place on an FX4.

2. Yes, the FX4 sticker on the tailgate looks out of place. Not sure if it's just because it's too big, or just because it wouldn't look right there even if it were smaller. Glad you're removing it. Personally, I think the bed looks way too bare w/out something back there. I'd try to find something to put back in place of the factory FX4 stickers.

3. Glad you removed the fuel door dip. I personally don't like any accenting of the fuel door. I much prefer it blend in and be almost invisible.

4. I don't care for the look of a truck with a topper on it. If you need it for function, I get that ... but generally, I think trucks look WAY better w/out the topper.

5. I like the matte black stuff on the FX4's ... so I'd not gloss the grille. I think that looks out of place, even on the appearance package grilles.


Long story short ... your truck looks damn good as-is ... I'd not keep screwing with it just to screw with it LOL.

Cheers Wiggum, appreciate the constructive critisism
I am buying a backflip today to cover the box, and ordered new FX4 Offroad emblems for the box... just waiting for them. I might gloss the grille still, I really like it on the app package, I guess it's a matter of preference...

Thanks again, have a great day!!

The tundra prices are so high for little options cloth interior, no remote start, no heated or cooked seats, and crappy milage with a tiny fuel tank.
Just felt I got more for my money with ford.

Tundra interior was basically a attempt to copy fords. It was better than 07-13 tundras but, ford still nicer and quieter as well. Just got bored of it I have went through 8-10 trucks in the last 4 years though. I hold no attachments to trucks.

OTHER than the raptor should have kept that one.
