A couple changes.

This is how it looked a couple weeks ago.



I decided to swap the door handles for the paintable ones and color-match them.
I also painted that little key pad that I never use.



I didn't get a good shot of it, but I matched the tailgate handle as well.

The color is a bit off because I didn't sand the handle smoothe, but it's not enough for me to give a sh!t about it.


I installed my 4" pro-flo exhaust with a 5" Bassani tip.

I really didn't want to add another piece of chome to my truck but you win some, you lose some. It'll be getting swapped out for a black one as soon as I paint my bumpers. I really dislike chrome.

Other than that, my 210 tune is finally loaded. It's fun as hell to drive I just wish it didn't smoke when I put it to the floor. Oh well, if that's my biggest complaint, I'm doing pretty good.

Sorry, I don't know my brands very well. Are you talking about the wheels?
If so, they're made by Vision Wheel Vision Wheel and sold through discount tire and national tire. They're probably a knockoff of what you're thinking.

The procomp 7089s look the same as well. I was going to get those, but the backspacing wasn't quite right for what I was looking to do.

I wanted to fit wide 35s without rubbing or having to waste money on a leveling kit. These worked out perfectly.

When you say you wish it didn't smoke, how much would you say it smokes? Is it really black or just a little bit of gray smoke?

I am strongly leaning on the DPF delete on my truck (Spartan), but I don't want to have black clouds. I don't really want to attract any attention to the fact that the epa stuff is missing.....
