    I used a shower rod and some clamps to hold mine in place. The rubber bed mat helps with it not moving as well.

    Did this help overall sound to the speakers too or just the sub? I've been wanting to make my jbl system a little better.

    Is there a link to this? And is this for any year with the jbl or just 18' +?

    Always amazed by that front end transformation. Looks so much better. Black Plastidip matches that center black section almost perfectly in texture and color. But white dip also looks good, close match. I think I'd try white to be honest. Also some guys have had great success with wrapping the caps

    What if anything did you do to treat the metal under the plastic caps? Here in new England I would be very concerned about getting water, salt, snow, dirt, etc trapped between the chrome and covers

    You could try the tie down straps for the coolers. They have a part you would bolt to the bed. RTIC sells some.

    Looks great! I am sold on doing this to my front bumper caps and valance. Did you do the steps already? Would like to see pics of how they turned out. Good stuff!

    Did nothing to treat the chrome except rub it in some places with some adhesion promoter for the 3M tape that they include with the package. It's a pretty snug fit. 3M tape towards the center of the bumper, two bolts mount it in the wheel well, and at the bottom it tucks underneath the black plastic. The top tucks in and just about touches the bottom of that piece between the chrome cap and the light fixture...it looks awesome as the gap now looks to be continuously white. There is still some air between the cover and the chrome cap through; you can feel it when you press in on the cover. I really don't see much water getting behind the cap (but I can't guarantee it), unless maybe you put a pressure washer tip right up to where the cover meets with the fog light housing. Here's some pics of the areas I'm talking about below. Also, I think these pics give a good indication of how well their stock gloss white covers match the factory paint, versus paying extra money to get super white 040 color matched covers.

    Is that a Plano storage box? Been eyeing those on Amazon to replace my cheap Home Depot Rubbermaid box. Seems like a good middle ground between what I have now and more expensive Pelican/Yeti type stuff.

    big couple weeks :spending:

    red tow hooks, TPO door handles, color matched mirror caps and TRD Pro grille, ARE overland shell, xpel wrap, xpel ceramic coating, and TPO bumpershellz. the chrome is all gone :D

    SDHQ sliders should be powdercoated and ready to install by the end of the week

    tried looking for a "before" front end pic for comparison, but realized i had never taken one since I disliked the chrome so much :rofl:

    yup, plug and play. though one step is a bit finicky. You pretty much must break two plastic posts on the original grille emblem that are secured with metal cover nuts (out of like 7 total clips though) to gain the proper access to remove the clips for the sensor harness. those i knew i couldn't afford to break. then reuse those metal cover nuts to secure the old sensor behind the garnish and you're off to the races. ultimately very straightforward.

    Purchased April 12th and loving it so far. Had the chrome grille and bumper ends wrapped. Bumpers in matte black and grille surround close to MGM but color came out closer to the color of the grille. I may redo the grille surround in matte black.

    Changed out climate control knobs to AJT Design knobs. Added the TRD shift knob. Added Scosche MagicMount magnetic mount to the dash for my phone. May try something different for phone holder since I just purchased the black center dash cover from the tundras.com marketplace to replace the silver center dash cover. Added Rydonair 13” antenna. Added Weathertech visors. And finally added an Extang Solid Fold 2.0 tonneau cover.

    Then this afternoon the Rough Country DS2 drop steps showed up at my front door so I installed them. I love them. Very well made but install instructions were laughably vague, but I figured it out.

    Thoughts? Criticisms? I can take it all. Thanks for looking.

    So the cover that someone makes (Ares?) wouldn't let the radar or whatever work properly?

    i have no clue. haven't kept up on ares' garnish and the goings-on surrounding it. From my perspective, TSS is a pretty important system and any malfunction would be a big pain. paying a little more for the OEM garnish for that peace of mind/headache avoidance/warranty support seemed worth it to me.

    Ya, I agree. Better safe then sorry. I just read a thread about Ares and he's not here anymore. Definitely go OEM.

    I'm no sound expert, but I believe this amp's main purpose is for a subwoofer application. Don't think you can power all your speakers with it. I basically removed the junk JBL sub that came with the truck and replaced it with one of these. The stereo shop connected the wires from the old JBL sub into the new amp and from the amp to the new sub. Sounds awesome to me and cost was not bad. I paid $550 installed with custom box built for the truck.
