Removed my door badges

I have NO IDEA why I did not do this a looong time ago. It literally took me 4 minutes per side. The look is much more clean and sleek. Plus, no more trying to clean all the nooks and crannies which the badge creates.

All I did was take my heat gun and warm the badge up for about 1 minute. After that I used dental floss which separated the badge from the door in about another minute. From there, I removed the double sided tape with my hand, which came off super easy, which took another minute, if that. From there, a little polish and wipe down in another 30 seconds or so and it was perfect!

Just ordered some Recon smoked LED mirror lenses. I knew I didn't like the amber ones, but they stood out so much in these pics I couldn't stop myself lol.

I guess it's a matter of preference. Don't get me wrong, your truck looks VERY clean without them, but for me, I prefer to see them on.

This is your truck so enjoy the look you want.

Hmm have not thought of that. Maybe.. There was one time it may have saved me from a ding. Instead it made a mark on the door strip which I was able to buff out. If it was not there, it may have created more damage.

I'll have to think about that one.. I'm thinking of ditching the 2.5" Icon kit and going with a 6" King Coilover kit with 22's and 37's. Perhaps then, when the truck is higher, I'll remove the strips.

I was about to ask you if you were happy with 35's or wish you would have went up more.

I'm waitting on my tax return , trying to decide between 4'' and 35's or 6'' and 37's.

Nice rig by the way.

37's will fit on a 4" lift and 20" wheels. I'm happy with how things turned out this time around, but I just want a bit larger. Plus I think the 22's with 37's look bad ***.
