2007 SLT to Sport Conversion w/ Pics
 
After a few years of dreaming, I finally bit the bullet and converted my SLT bumpers to a Sport package. This was aided by a girl who ran a red light while texting and driving, and I demolished her car. So when it was in the shop, I had it upgraded. Let me know what you guy think! If you have any questions about it, feel free to post them. I'll answer the best I can.

The red stripes really set your truck off! Yeah, shelling out the cash for the rear bumper was a pain. But it looks great in the end (no pun intended)!

I was hesitant at first to make the switch, but I'm absolutely in love with it now. Is it worth the swap (without a little help from an insurance claim)? Possibly. But if you happen to have it in the shop, I'd say it's completely worth it.

Nice. I agree the red stripes look great. Do you know how difficult the swap is? Oh and you need 2 cans of Plasti Dip to take care of those chrome side steps.:smiley_thumbs_up:

I would encourage you to spend the money and get the 3M clearbra put on it because painted front ends take a lot of abuse from stuff on the roads. I had mine painted and after 2 years it's in need of a new paint job.

I agree, I painted the grill my self and i can see that i am going to have to repaint it soon. So i am going to cover it with the clear bra when I redo it next time.
