Just FYI, the Ground Force lowering kit for our trucks (Crew Cab) is product #91214.

Here is where I got mine... http://autoplicity.com/products/2755...ion-91214.aspx

Looks like they are out of stock now though.

I would think that would be plenty to get it done.

I bought mine from Amazon. They sell 1 ft wide and 4 ft long for $30.

I can't remember how much it took me before I finished but be prepared to redo some parts a few times.

Some problem areas are the inside corners around the vents and the inside corners around the steering wheel buttons.

After my first attempt on the steering wheel trim the buttons were rubbing in the corners. To resolve this you need to heat / pull & stretch (gently) the vinyl in those areas.
If the vinyl in those areas is not fatigued this way it will want to lift up and revert to it's original shape (flat)

Start with the small stuff to get a feel of how this stuff responds to heat and pulling and stretching.
The upper console section will be a challenge, so save it for last after you
have a good feel for the material.

When you start to wrap that large curved bend at the top you WILL have 100 wrinkles. DONT PANIC!
Just slowly heat, stretch and smooth it down a little at a time.
If you mess up you can heat, peel back a little bit and try again.

It is also a good idea to test how it will respond to heat once you have it applied.
With a hair dryer or heat gun heat up some of those problem spots and see what they do.
If it starts to lift away from the bezel you haven't fatigued the vinyl sufficiently.

At the beginning be prepared to get into your truck one summer afternoon and find it has done something crazy, it happened to me twice!

Overall though I highly recommend this mod if you have the patience for it.
You can't get 3D molded pieces in Carbon Fiber and the "fake" Carbon fiber stuff looks awful.
This stuff refracts light just like the real stuff, it has a texture to it, it looks outstanding and start to finish it only cost me about $100.

Good Luck!

Looks awesome. Real sharp, nice touches with the badging and the stripes, and the colors go great together.

I may just have to look into the stuff.. Am getting really tired of my plain interior. Have done some things to change it up, but I want to do a lot more.

I think when it comes to the heat temps you can get the high heat spray from Autozone or Advanced. I will be doing mine eventually, just got to get the energy to pull the cover off lol.

I'm concerned about spray painting the plastic. Hi temp paint on metal is one thing, I'm not sure how well it will bond to plastic.

No doubt I will spend hours researching that question before I get started.

For me doing the pre-mod homework is half the fun!

Check out this vid Ghostrider...

This guy makes it look easy, if I had 10 years of experience I could make it look easy too!

The pro's will apply them for you for $50 bucks or so, well worth it if you ask me.

Ive applied many things before but on much smaller items.
ie, cell phones (screen and body protectors), ipad, camera, monitors, etc.

I believe the key is soaking beneath so you can move it into the right location and begin to squeeze that water out.
Similar to curved cell phones, they do want to pull away at corners but each time you squeeze that water out, it pulls closer to the body.

Where did you get your stripes?
I like how yours extends all the way down.

Once again, NICE TRUCK

Got the Caliper Cover from MGP by way of CarID.com
The custom color ran me an extra $100, $30 more for the dodge/ram logo's.
$300 total, kinda steep but I think it was worth it.
