Looking good! I agree, the lights need to get tinted or at least have the black interiors, they stick out like sore thumbs now.

don't want to tint as it is illegal (as are the tail lights but you can still see the red behind the paint and they are still bright),and I have all ready been pulled over before the nite shades just to get a closer look at my truck i turn a lot of heads and get lots of complements wich is frigin cool

Lookin' Good! I would hold off on blacking out the exhaust and go with some fat double walled tips (5" fills the stock bumper cut outs very well). The reason I caution you is that the stainless tips help to break it up a little like the stainless hardware (lugs, etc) on the wheels. Also, with the weather up there the stainless will hold up much better than paint.

There are many write ups about baking headlights, I've baked mine open on 3 separate occasions now so I've become pretty adept at it. Just use a low temperature ~250-275F and use short bake periods of 15min. The most important thing to remember is to NOT RUSH. Let the heat separate the sealant and don't pry hard, a gentle pull and the help of a flat blade screwdriver are all you need. There have been several people who have blacked out their headlight and even added aftermarket projector kits to their stock assemblies. This would be a good way to stand out from the crowd.

If you're not sure about the tailpipes, try using the plasti-dip on it. It hold up on most exhausts, and it gives you a way to experiment without having to permanently modify your system.

good point did think about that and am looking into the 5" tips,probably do that when I get my exhaust done,thinking of 3" pipes and a good throaty muffler

when you bake do you let them cool each time and do you use wood or something to set them on so they don't touch the metal in the oven.More info please I so want to try this.going to buy some extra headlights if I can find them cheap enough (no of any??)It's my wifes daily driver and I do not want that lol

Almost done modding, what is this phrase you speak of? Is this English?
