  1. That is a steal. Mine was 52k sticker for a 5.3 and got it down to 42k and change. I would’ve definitely gone the 6.3 route for that price and I’m sure you got a lot more upgrades than I did. But at the time it was a gamble to see where this would go and I’m still happy with the truck either way. Coming from a V6 so any V8 will do Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Oh wow that’s a lot of work too! Yeah after I was done with sanding and taping it was already 2 hours and I was surprised. The time it takes to make it custom lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks!!!! I guess the sanding is about right, just doesn’t scuff it up as much as I thought it would. I’ll give the alcohol a try. For the paint, I’ll probably use Rustoleum plastic automotive paint since it says it adheres to plastic easier and is a primer/paint combo. The only thing I’ll do different is not taking it apart since I just bought new ones that have the exact adhesive cutout already. I just tucked the tape under the chrome parts carefully which took forever!!! Thanks again for the insight! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. How much sanding was done? Just started my process and using super fine sandpaper and it’s barely scuffing the chrome. Also what paint did you use? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. This is awesome!! Thanks for sharing!!! Now to decide on matte or gloss black on my gloss black bumper [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I really think it all depends on where you live and demand. If the dealer knows they can profit a little more and there’s a demand for the specific truck, they won’t really budge a lot. I was set on a Trail Boss. They didn’t want to move on the price as much but tried to get me in a standard LT and were willing to cut a larger discount. Have family that works in sales management for the auto industry just not Chevy and they said that usually it all depends on demand for the car and how the sales are performing. If they are willing to loose some profits for just a unit sale they’ll let it go cheap but if they feel they can get someone else to buy it for a higher price tag, they won’t give in. That’s why I felt good with the price they gave me on the Trail Boss plus I called for a second opinion from my family. Noticed when I started to research them in my area that inventory on these didn’t even last a week in February. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Totally forgot to mention those as well. All solid options. I do like that these are billet UCAs vs tubulars. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. No he actually sent me a video of the aftermath and that was a snapshot from it. Literally on pavement driving less then 5mph and a loud noise and scooted up and the tire fell off. Had to replace the axle and many other parts. The joint snapped right off. Yeah I would recommend Camburg or Total Chaos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Actually I would recommend these but only if you’re truly building your suspension. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I would recommend Total Chaos. The only thing is the maintenance on them. If you don’t lube them up often they squeak but they last a long time and great quality. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I ran billet Icons on my Tacoma with the uniball before and never had issues. But recently my friend had an issue with Icon tubulars with Delta joints on his GMC. Literally snapped right off while he was driving on the road and damaged a lot of stuff. You can see right there how his tire is just laying flat in the ground in a parking lot! Not sure if I would recommend them anymore. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. So they’re only giving you 1k more than the rebate? Yeah I would wait if that’s the case. They went slightly under invoice for me. So 3k off then 6k rebate. They tried giving me 1k off in the beginning and I laughed and showed them there were plenty online deals that were a state away that gave 3k off plus rebate and I’ll be willing to drive. Their response was online deals were fake and false advertising. So I left the dealer and told them I’ll find out for myself. Literally 3 hours later they called me and said they’ll do it if I come back. My suggestion, find an online deal and use that as bargaining power. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Buy one with a solid window [emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Kribin 4 Pack Blind Spot Mirror, 2" Round HD Glass Frameless Convex Rear View Blind Spot Mirror Stick On with 360° Rotation Adjustable for SUV Car Auto https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G4MTYWB/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_E07FEbM9W6EDY There’s two options to mount them so if you want a sleek look, don’t use the plastic part. I didn’t and just mounted them flat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I did it on mine and it works great! Just like you said, I use it to park and it helps me avoid curbs. And it blends in well. Just make sure you get frameless and the glass ones not plastic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
