    --Tinted windows
    20% tint all the way around and 35% windshield. I wish i had gone darker on the back window/ rear doors. I actually need to get them replaced on the rear doors since its peeling already (it looks like it either slid or they didnt cut the excess off) I am going to wait until spring when it warms up again to tint them.
    I think the tinted windshield is easily one of the best things i have ever done to ANY vehicle. As someone who has very light and sensitive eyes its perfect.

    Thanks for the pic! I am going for a blacked out theme so wasnt sure how id like it with the chrome "bolts" on the edges. but those actually look really sharp.

    Stage 2 completed.

    So this last weekend i was able to get into my dads heated garage since its 20* here! But i got a ton done.

    I was able to do the following.
    Black tailgate emblem
    Smoked rear LED 60” tailgate light
    Gloss black door handle covers
    VHT tinted tail lights
    VHT third brake light
    Debadge truck
    Black out wheels
    LED pods in rear bumper


    --Debadging the truck was super easy and adding the black tailgate emblem was no problem.
    --The pods in the rear bumper/ tailgate light stick were a bit of a struggle but i managed. I wish i would have gotten Flood instead of Spot. But they still light up the night!
    --VHT is seriously my favorite stuff. I used about 4 or 5 coats on the tails/ 3rd brake and it came out super good. I should have done 1 or 2 more coats to got slightly darker but they look great.
    --Gloss black door covers were bought off Ebay and work great. They use 3M tape to attach.
    --Blacking out the rims were a train wreck... I used Rustoleum Chrome Black out kit. OMG! NEVER EVER AGAIN. I was in a garage that was 70 degrees, prepped my rims correctly and made sure everything was perfect. I sprayed the first coats on the rims and it was barely showing up at all. Started my 2nd and 3rd coats and disaster happened. The paint ran like it was its job. It looked like garbage and basically ruined my rims. I was really angry with this product. I ended up buying a can of plastidip just to cover the trainwreck and get me till spring when i plan to but new tires and rims anyways. The blacked out plastidip rims actually look pretty darn good (pics to come in a day or two). I ended up not blacking out my bumpers and grille due to the way the rustoleum reacted with the rims i couldnt take a chance. I thought about plastidipping the bumpers and grille but i ran out of time and had to get back into town for work.

    Stage 3 Completed

    So i got some new wheels and tires. I could not be any happier with them!

    Rims are Rockstar 3's in gloss black. 20x12 -44 offset.
    Tires are TOYO Open County RT's 33x12.5x20

    I really love these tires. I have not taken them on the highway yet but i got it up to 60mph the other day and they are very smooth and very quite. Unfortunately i did rub a little bit so instead of doing a level i ended up trimming some of the inner fender well plastic at the bottom... The tires themselves never touched any metal or components of suspension, etc. Once the plastic was trimmed the rub is 100% gone.
