Default Got to love ebay!

well, had some free time this morning, and the wife told me i had 200 bucks to spend on my truck for my birthday coming up in a couple weeks, so i began scouring ebay trying to make the most of it!!!!! heres what i came up with, not bad if i do say so myself!

1- stainless steel rocker molding for my truck (chrome) i love how it looks and it protects the doors when im not paying attention and swing it into the post at the gas pump lol (it happens)

2- chrome headlight trim/grille - i know some of you dont appreciate chrome, but as you can see, i live for it!

3- airaid modular intake tube - to go along with my k&n drop in and delete the nasty corrugated tube and resonator hat


all for 194 bucks!!! got to love it!



anyone ever use the little square side steps that bolt up to the rockers? i found a set made by bully for forty bucks, looks like a cheap alternative to running boards, sick of watching the wife drag her a$$ down the side of my seats and sliding out of the truck!! they are the little square steps......they strong enough?

sounds like a good haul for the amount you're spending. good job!

As for the steps, I have no personal knowledge of them, but have seen similar steps used on older Chevy's.

My grandfather had a '71 Chevy 1 ton camper special that he installed some sort of step that reveled itself when the door was opened. It was in the opening between the side of the truck and the door, and allowed for easier entry/ exit. He had 'em on for years, and I don't think he ever had any problems.

My buddy has a set of those steps on his 2009 ram. Functional, but always says he wished he had bought tube steps like on my 2012.
