  1. Bump, price dropped to $100. These fit 1500/2500/3500 Crew Cab 2007-2018.
  2. It does come with age. I now look at some vehicles and think WTH are they thinking. I prefer the stock look with a touch of making it your own now-a-days.
  3. Sound system

    I have a sub box from subthump that works awesome and a much cheaper alternative vs an all in one. I run a 12" Rockford Fosgate slim subwoofer, and a 500" watt RF mono amp with remote gain control. It hits hard enough to blur your vision at half volume. Oddly, each item was roughly $150. I have a second matching amp and subwoofer on the shelf if I decide to get crazy, but it is well balanced now imo.
  4. Window tint question

    My fronts were done with 18% tiny, and match very well I feel. I am thinking of switching to ceramic though...
  5. Back Wall Amp Rack

    I found this when searching for a solution, comes in different sizes and made for our trucks. https://lljcustoms.com/store?olsPage=products%2F2014-2018-silverado-sierra-crew
  6. Great looking truck, like the clean look of it.

  8. Realtruck.com My experience

    I bought nerf bars and a tonneau cover from them with no hiccups. Recently warrantied a pair of nerf bars and received a new pair in days of doing so. They also bent over backwards to give me a great deal on a new set that I wanted. The advisor on my warranty claim worked with me for days on all my questions regarding a new set if bars. They would get a 5 star rating from me.
  9. New, still in original packaging. Decided to order a pair on N-Fab Podiums Steps I wheeled-n-dealed for. I live near Reading PA and would be willing to deliver them if not to far away, at my discretion. The model is INB-510309, and they usually cost between $240-$300 depending on if you can get them on sale. They also mount to existing holes on frame. They fit a 2016 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab, and likely other years, I can look it up if needed.

    I went with Mothers Speed Clay 2.0. I was going to use a Nanoskin Mitt but it would not have came in time. I was balancing the detail schedule and weather forecast. I used Griots Fast Finishing MF pads on my wife's new Honda, loved those pads.

    I thought about topping it but with the size of the truck I seem to lean towards something quick that works. I used duragloss 601/105 polish/bonding agent on my other vehicle (Infiniti FX35), which I need to detail in the near future, held up well. Perhaps a good chance to try a ceramic coating, I dont drive it much, it's in great condition, saved for my son for when he starts to drive...less than two years. Let's just say I am not anxious for that day, he is pretty responsible but kids behind the wheel, especially mine will worry me all the time. The only effect from a coating I wish I had with a sealant is hardness. But considering I use a foam cannon and get majority of the crud off the paint prior to actual hand washing I think I will be ok. Did you use an All-In-One with the Orange Pad, If so, which one? I also used a clay pad vs clay, a lot faster. Used some rinseless wash diluted down for lube during the process.

    So I used Meguiars Microfiber cutting pads with their mf correction compound. I also used their mf polish and mf polishing pads. I learned alot during the process. I found that running the da at 4800opm was crucial to defect removal, as recommended, faster did not achieve a better result. I wanted to do a ceramic coating such as Blackfire but went with Meguiars Fast Finish because it does seem to hold up for me over time, plus its quick to reapply, obviously two different ends of the spectrum for paint protection. I was hesitant on ceramic, worried I would screw up the process. I did coat the trim with Meguiars Ultimate Protectant lightly and wiped it dry only to find the little bit of rain we had washed it off and down the paint, made up a few new cuss words when I seen that, lol. I am going to use a trim sealant such as McKees to prevent the issue. I have trim sealant like the stuff on my tires but it is a more semi permanent solution that I am not ready to go all in on. The paint is not perfect, but yesterday some people thought it was a new truck. It removed all the hazing and marring. I almost cannot believe I achieved those results. Your truck looks great. I wish they offered a black chrome option when buying, that would look incredible on most, particularly white. I am debating ditching the nerf bars, they are less than one year old and already peeling in numerous spots, I have a warranty claim in the process. I definitely wont leave them on in such a condition. Next up is some exhaust work and a rear console build. Is there something hanging off the front passenger side tow hook in that photo?
