    picking up black housing headlights tommorow.

    guy in okc is taking off his front and rear sport bumpers. im picking them up next month.


    after that ill be getting my grill blacked out by either painting or just buying a sport grill. shortening the antenna, and getting the windows professionally retinted.

    not exactly happy with them but they will do. gonna have the other headlights professionaly tinted and probably sell the black painted ones.


    whoever painted the inside made a mess when he was cleaning the lense. ugh.

    shit just wait until I get my self situated with the 06 swap and I'll give you my 05s. I'll go to the dealer shit and get some pricing for the parts I need once I get the part numbers.

    Skip the 06s and go with 07-08. Same thing but they dont have the orange reflector along the bottom of the lens. Look 10x better. Unless you're looking for the 06 night runner lights. Then they only come with the orange reflector along the bottom...

    Well Im going to start looking into pricing it out ya.. I know the bumper will be around 2500. Lights maybe 200? Grill and new grill bracket, fenders and some trim/seals, paint, and headlight harness is all i should need. Probably 4000 with paint and labor.

    Your lights are suitable for a few months if need be.... work on other shit. Im thinking I really should get a trans before I buy some cosmetic stuff, since the trans will help me make more power and use all that power too ya know?

    2500 for the bumper? look used. easily under 1000.

    and im switching off between performance and cosmetic. and if something pops up, like the sport bumpers ill jump on it. i dont think im going to go as heavy on performance as ive previously stated. maybe just tuner, and a intake. im saving the performance for when i eventually get a cummins. then the fun starts :o

    No I think the one in my AV has a 10 inch lift, mine will be 8 sometime today or tomorrow. In this pic its a 6 inch lift.... and im fairly certain mine has more power too. I will one day make a youtube video of mine and use it as an av. :big grin:

    Sold them a while ago... to many people have them. So I bought RBP91Rs instead... these are 20X10s and I think I may get 20X12s when I buy new tires when these are toast.
