  1. How about more details on why you had PV panels on your truck? I’m an energy engineer, that’s a fascinating install!!! Would love to see more info.

  4. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Chrome to textured black yesterday.
  5. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Rattlecan. If it turns out well, I’ll swing by rhinolining but I’ve had good success with rustoleum liner on low impact parts (sub box is rustomleum liner)
  6. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Operation de-chrome continues.... Before Primed Bedlined!
  7. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Can you take some pictures zoomed in showing how you ran wires behind the mount? I’m intrigued by this as my tweeters are mounted flat to the sail panel.
  8. Random HID Parts

    I converted my 14 Sierra headlights to the TRS Retroquick system and no longer need some HID parts or the stock bi-xenon projectors. $25 shipped for 2 x 9012 XB 35W 5,500K bulbs, ~ 2 months old $20 shipped for 2 x AMP: Morimoto XB Igniters, ~2 years old $75 for stock OEM Projectors from 2014 GMC Sierra headlights. Everything works, no issues.
  9. Plasti dipping parts on your Truck

    I had the same wheels on my F150 (different set with Ford boltmpatter) Can’t beat the timeless design and it matches EVERY truck color.
  10. What have you done to your K2 today?

    I know I want to do something with old man woodgrain but not sure what. Back and forth between adding Max 5 to them or going with a brushed aluminum look like my stereo surround. I love camo as much as the next guy but sometimes its too much and I haven't been able to find a quality wrap material in Max 5. I'd like a nice gloss finish.... Running boards, brakes, and shocks are next...
  11. What have you done to your K2 today?

    I have a severe case of parts ADD and needed to fit my truck in my new garage. That bad boy added 12" to the front of my truck. The spoiler got some mixed reviews on the GM/Chevy FB groups but I like it a lot. The quality is awesome.

    Took the valence off last night for a little change of pace.
  13. Raptor-Style Amber Grill Lights

    7” OC is the spacing for the raptor lights if anyone is interested. I used to make a bracket for f150s back in my ford days.
  14. My opinions Install - Once you make the cut, its smooth sailing. Take your time and leave yourself some room to mount the brackets on both sides of the cut and you should be good. All down hill after the cuts are made. The rest of the kit came together nicely with some minor sanding here and there but nothing crazy. The gluing part sucks and Permetex is messy shit. Light output - 10 out of 10 on this one. The light output from the new projectors is sharper, clearer, and the hot spot is more than twice as bright as the OEM projectors with HIDs. In my video I tested it with my Extech light meter. The coverage of the projectors is much wider than OEM. The dimpled lenses in the OEM housing is crippling. They diffuse too much light, the clear lenses on the new projectors perform far better. Picture below shows the OEM projector and the new NHK G5X on the right. Both projectors are using HID bulbs but the cut line and the clarity of the right (newer) projector is noticeable. Final product with some excellent cutoff lines after aiming. Here's the video of the install, enjoy! Let me know if you guys have any questions.
