    I can’t wait for that silver sky grille surround and hood bulge. The black tpo shellz have been great and now I just need that last bit of chrome gone! Lol.

    PAINT UPDATE

    We submitted architectural designs for the exhaust fans for the booth which was the last major hurdle. We are just going to assume those are going to be approved, and we have a contractor coming in next week to do the work. I still don't have an exact date for painting, but it looks like beginning to mid-February is looking good!

    This is true. Is there some sort of tool anyone knows of that the forum offers where we can have a gallery or something like it for people to check out different colors?

    I had the same issue for my SSM. But once I saw a couple pics of some SSM with the black TPO, it made the decision easier. The black is such a good contrast for the SSM and think it would look good on cement too.

    I'm not a big chrome fan but the SR5 grille surround doesn't look so bad with the all black bumper. Great looking truck.

    True, at this point it just feels out of place to me. I think the color matched grille surround and bulge will look good instead of adding more black.

    Wow I’m glad I found this...I’m interested in some Cement colored front caps, and probably grill surround/bulge.

    Got mine installed a couple weeks ago. Did a few test fits to make sure of the fit, then heated everything with a hair dryer to make sure it adhered correctly. The rear was a little harder for me, but still wasn’t bad at all. Love the way they turned out! Thanks @EC1!

    Got pics of the cement caps? I still haven’t pulled the trigger on an order but leaning towards the TPO... the 20 degree weather isn’t helping motivate me either

    Got mine put on today. Order placed through CaliRaised on the 18th of December and came yesterday. Holiday's probably played a big part in the delay.

    By the way, @EC1 , I had some issues getting the outboard 12mm holes on both sides to line up. I tried everything but the liner and shell just didn't want to work. Other than that, the fitment was great.

    That's odd. If it's bugging you, shoot me a message and we can set up a video walk-around or something. I'm immediately thinking it's getting hung-up somewhere, but you say that you're not seeing anything so I'm not sure. Just let me know if you want me to take a closer look! Truck looks awesome by the way

    I’d like to see what color matched ones look like on a white 1794 with the same front end as mine. I see that almost everyone else has a black center piece on their front bumper and mine is silver. My truck is a 2014. I will see how it looks but if I don’t love it I can have the center piece wrapped in white. I have the same concern about my grill as well as the center pieces of the grill are silver. If I put the new shells over the bulge and grill surround it might look “too light” because there won’t be any light/dark contrast. Which makes me consider swapping the grill for a TRD pro or SR5 honeycomb one. Decisions.

    I appreciate it! It looked like the liner just didn't want to go quite far enough over the shell to line up. The bolt isn't loose and it didnt hurt anything so I'm not too worried about it.

    Are you going to put on the color matched bulge/surround? If so, can you tag me and post a pic? I have your exact truck and trying to decide between blacking it all out, or colormatching bulge/surround with black caps.

    I'm on the MGM bumper waiting list.
    I still can't decide on painted or TPO.
    Leaning towards waiting on the color matched...

    @EC1 any guess on when the MGM caps will be available?

    Things are actually moving along now with the permits which is a huge improvement. I'm shooting for middle of February, but I think by the end of February is probably a good bet. Hopefully it's sooner, but things are officially out of my control as far as that goes.
