    Great pics!

    The wheels aren’t my taste, but more power to you!

    A+ Grill.

    Nice running boards.

    Is that a mirror cap or a brand new side mirrors?

    What are your thoughts on those bed storage boxes? People seem mixed on them.

    Drivers side grab handle! Definately better than yanking steering wheel. Be cautious when installing. You may need to notch plastic for wire harness clearance. I had to.

    These are just replacement caps pre painted. They were $129. Huge difference in my opinion.

    Ajt interior bits. Very nice quality. I did the whole chrome delete kit with cement parts. This included vent rings, Hvac knobs and 4x4 knob, center console trim and shift gate, also door handles and dash pad. Next was led tails and putco blade led bar. Added a 5 pin trailer harness t connector. I hardwired the led bar to the t connector making truly plug an play with no modifications or splicing to the factory harness.

    Honestly for the boxes I haven’t really used them. Threw some tie downs in the storage side that’s about it. Also added a roll up tonneau
