I've done it a few times and it works great...obviously not perfect, but better than a clean line.
ya the tape line isnt the nicest, my dad owned a body shop when I was young so I am going to get him to help... not going to do anything until the spring, my parents are gone for the winters. But I would like to get it done so that it doesnt rust my entire fenders out like alot of dodges I see around.... dont know how well it would work but I was thinking I could drill into that 2nd layer of sheet metal to allow sand and water to run right out instead of sitting in there?

well it has been soooo long since I updated this and havent really kept up to date, with my mods, I have done a bunch of things since I last updated

After waiting over a month for my N-Fab light bar I finally got it, 3 hours before I was leaving to drive 4 hours to Toronto before going to mexico in mid february, I was all excited, I get it out of the box, its the wrong fawkin one fawk me I was pissed, on the website it shows one with "brackets" that go from the bar to the tow hook mounts, the one I got with the same part number you are supposed to drill through the bumper... are ya kidding? deefinetly wasnt cool with that. So I built a bracket real quick out of some 1x1.5 aluminum that ran between both tow hook supports and bolted the bar to it
bracket

another view of the bracket

then moved the 2 130w KC daylighters that were behind the grill and put them on ther bar, I added 2 more 130 KC daylighters to the centre 2 spots on the bar, they are long range and shot very far, the 2 original ones are driving ones, they shot far but alot wider, they are on a slight angle towards each ditch, its pretty dang bright!!!

last weekend I decided to re-vht my tail lights, the first time I did it they came up pretty dark, the light output looked great at night and the lights when the truck was off looked awesome, the black matched the truck but when the sun shined on them you couldnt see my brake lights, so I re did them, used 3 light coats this time, 5 coats of clear, they came out great imo, still a little dark but you can see them in the sun, worse comes to wrose I will put led bulbs in the housings and solve all problems, had a few cops follow me and they kept going so thats a good sign

last week I also got a c/b dual exhaust system installed, I was after a flowmaster system but decided on getting a 1 in 2 out, 15" long vibrant muffler and 2- 3 inch vibrant tips and had a local muffler shop do the rest, pretty happy with the resukt, sounds wicked, its lud in the cab but sounds good on the outside, its deffinetly luider in the cab then out for some reason. dont have any videos but a few pics
Muffler


everyone goes straight out the back, I hate that, dont like the look at all, I wanted them out behind the rear tires but the tips were to long so 2 the corner of the bumpers it was

and finally for this week I bought bushwacker pocket style flares, for a few reasons, 1 I was washing and waxing the truck over a week ago, it was super nice june weather and discovered a ton of stone chips in the paint, all down the bottom of the doors, my tires love picking up stones, so reason 1 was to prevent more of this, 2 was I fixed the rust around my rear fenders (damn dodge) and the colour match was not the same, you could see the tape lines (i think there is a pic of it in this thread somewhere) so reason 2 was to cover up that because it looks like shit and will be hard to explain when I sell this thing 1 day. 3 was they look good. Not totally happy with the fit on them for nearly 600 bucks, they dont hug the rear fenders very well and there is a 3/16 or so gap at one part of them near the top of the fender on both sides and no real way to adjust them. but they look good from far LOL







will try to find a way to adjust them damn things, also not happy that they use you original screws but if you have mud flaps then the screws wont be long enough to hold the mud flaps on, not a huge deal but now my exhaust has been pelted with stones the last few days because I havent got a chance to get longer screws

ordered new wheels 2 weeks ago on monday and they are finally supposed to be in beginning of this coming week, cant say what they are but I like them alot and no one on here has them will post pics when I get them on!
