I'd love to see them. firemarshallvin@gmail.com
I just sent you a direct link to my album.

On a side note those seats are cool I dig the embrodering on them
Thanks, the seats are laser etched though not embroidered. I was on the fence about getting them or not. I decided to get them sight unseen and am now glad I did. I love the look.

Thanks for the compliments. I ordered the Black Gold sight unseen. I did find a 2-tone Longhorn at a dealer in Tennessee so I at least could see what the colors looked like together on my computer. It is a color you either love or hate. So far everyone that has seen it in person has said they love it, it is so unique. Hopefully they weren't just being nice, but even if so, it doesn't really matter since I am the only one that has to like it and I definitely do.

Thanks, so far the RamBoxes work really well with the BakFlip. Only time will tell if the seal will hold up over the RamBoxes as I open and close the box over time. I have major storage possibilities.

The trick to making them last longer is maintenance. That goes for door seals too. if you treat them every 6 months they will last longer then those who do not treat the seals.

I find Gummipflege Stift works well - It applies directly from the bottle like a shoe polish; when it dries it creates a dark matte seal, durability measured in months it has a little sponge on top of the bottle so you always get the right amount of product on your weather-stripping or rubber seals. Once applied to rubber they will take on a dark but natural shine. Use bi-annually to provide UV protection to avoid rubber from hardening or freezing

I ordered it from Jeremiah at Discount Auto Performance (one of the sites vendors). He gave me the best price and outstanding service with extremely quick shipping.

It seems like in the bright sun (we get about 360 days a year of) it has a brownish tint to it. The few cloudy days a year or under florescent lights it does have a greenish tint. At night it looks black.

That's one tight fit in the garage, Good Luck
Install was OK, but the directions weren't very clear on how to do a few of the steps. The pictures were too small for me to see clearly. I found a You Tube video on the install that made it a lot easier. The order they did installed it in didn't match the directions but I at least got to see how it went together.

On paper it looks like yours would fit but it wouldn't. I should have had more space than I did with mine. I have 2" at the back bumper and 3" at the front. Yours is 9" longer than mine so you would have to remove one of the bumpers to close the door. I almost went with a 2500 but felt the 2"-3" clearance wasn't enough. Glad I didn't go with the 2500 now.

Thanks for the tip. I've never heard of it but I bet it'll come in handy in the Arizona heat. I'll get some on order.
