Looking awesome. Color matched grille is awesome...looks way better IMO. Any plans for the rear bumper since that is the only chrome that is left? BTW, love the wheels. :rockon:

Rear bumper will be down the line. Unless I can find an owner with a sport looking to trade. I wanna stay away from the base model rear bumper.

Good choice on the weathertechs! How do you like those Duratracs?

Truck looks good!
Weathertechs are worth every penny. The Duratracs have been great. Sooo much better than the stock rugged trails.
Thank you.
Looking good man! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

You have come a long way!
Thanks I will be looking to do the 5100's at some point. Avid light bar too. :thumbsup:

How much did that run ya? How does it compare to the other name brands? (Meguiars, Adams, Mothers)
My whole order was around $100 bucks. The last time I ordered from them was in 2002...so a little goes a long way. I just finished with round one. I will post up some pics once I am done.

It is a better shine than Meguires IMO (I have Meguires on in my sig). I have not used the others. I can say that the durability is fantastic on such a dark vehicle. It is a long process to get it all done but worth it to me.

I've been using Poorboy's for polish and am very happy. Zaino will give you equal results for polishing...just make sure that in that package you have a pad and polish with enough cut to get the deep stuff out (even if it is just for spot treatment). For a long-lasting synthetic sealant Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant is my favorite (Klasse, etc. doesn't come close in my book). Of course, for the deepest gloss a carnuba wax like P21S cannot be beat.

Sorry if I'm preaching to the choir...not sure on your experiences and expertise in this arena.

I'm right with you. :D Zaino is my favorite so far. However, I am not some militant follower. I will have to try the Wolfgangs in the future. I have put CS over Carnuba Wax with great results. It is amazing the difference between synthetic and carnuba polishs, waxes and sealants.

Awesome. Enjoy looking at your truck this weekend. We're going to do the same thing to our 4Runner sometime in the next couple days...except it is a lighter color so it doesn't look nearly as good as our dark trucks do once they are cleaned up properly. :D
