Nice. Thanks for the response. Any chance we can get some frontal and rear shots of the truck? I'm curious how far out the tires extend due to the altered backspace and wider tires size.
Not a big deal since Bushwacker makes various easy to install flares, but i'd like to get an idea od which one i would need if I go to a similar setup. Thanks,

I really like them... I have the outside lights turned down just a little so I can use them and not blind the car in front of me... The middle ones are for people that cut me off... :lol:

Welcome. :mrgreen: You got a picture of the front bumper? I have an Aluminess front bumper too. Think they only made about 3 of them for the 3G's. LOL And all 3 are on here now. :lol:

New guy here. Been lurking for a while now and figured I would stop in and say hello. Started my vehicle career with a 1971 Mustang Convertible with a 351C that I built with my father and stepped up to my own when I was 17 to a 1997 Chevy C1500 Extended Cab with the 350 Vortec, 35'' tires, big 10'' lift, 2WD with a detroit locker and an absolute chick magnet. Once I got to college I was driving a ton, and the 10-12mpg I was getting on the truck wasnt going to cut it, so I cut it loose and bought a Honda Accord Coupe V6 (I know, I know). But I built that thing pretty well with a CAI, MDX intake spacer, Lightweight Crank Pulley, RV6 J-Pipe, Borla Exhaust, $1000 sound system, etc etc. Finally I picked up a job as a Operations Manager of a self storage facility, and I have an apartment on site! Saved some money for a while and last November I bit the bullet and found a 2007 Dodge Power Wagon, Quad Cab in Modesto, CA (about 300 miles north of me). So I took a train, struck a deal and she was mine. Ill post the details below.

Hi All. I just got my new truck on Friday and I really like it so far. I went with the Brilliant Black Pearlcoat. I was kind of unsure how it would compare with the Gloss Black that was discontinued earlier this year, but I have to admit, I really like it.

Mine took a little over 7 weeks from the time it was ordered until it arrived on the lot.
