@Blueox01 you got some talent and patience, someday when I catch up with life and kids will have a life of their own, I'd like to move out in the country and start living the life myself.

Some nice looking trucks in here. My kid and I recently fixed up his first truck. Budget was pretty tight so we put a lot of work into it with all the body work and prep for paint. I think it came out pretty good.

Like what you did with the front bumper. Is that bed liner?

I've never seen this thread until now... :duh:   Wow, nice trucks!!!  I just combed through 15 pages of some pretty cool looking stuff and I also noticed quite a few similarities too.  A surprising number of you still have the factory rims.  Me too and I love the look.  Not too many rims out there fit well with the 2nd gens.  Plus many of you are running aftermarket headlights.  Mostly non-sports with Sport type housings.  Like minds think alike?

 

And I absolutely loved the pictures showing the areas where you live.  Maybe its just my inner self who's looking to flee this state or that I enjoy this great country and all the cool places within it.  Either way, lots of nice photos...

 

Now I have to dig up some pictures of my truck so I can join in on the fun. :thumb1:

Yes. I did the rear too. Chrome sucks up here in Canada. Unless you replace your truck every 10 years. It seems to pit and rust, I am sure from the winter roads. This liner spray should help. Here are a couple more pics.

Lower cab corners are available. I just had a bad rear cab corner replaced.

Great. Thanks for the reply. It looks like that bonds to the chrome very well. I'm jacked to do this to my truck this winter. Did you have to do any primer or prep to the chrome? Thanks again.

LOL I know just no time to do it. Beer can seemed like a good option at the time I was having it. 

How do you like them BF Goodrich rugged Trail, I know rugged terrain is supposed to be better

Update.  This truck is in this thread earlier with a leveling kit and 35's but I can attest to everything I have read and learned here, the trucks run and drive much better stock.....  345,000 will always need something.

40 grit sanding disc all over the chrome to roughen the surface up well. No primer required. Spray the box liner on to the very rough surface.  It will adhere very well to the roughed up surface.
