Did the chrome piece on the rear quarter panel come on your sport or did you have to make one from a 4dr fit?

Yeah, I saw that, I was just wondering what the bent drag in your previous setup cost you.

THe drag link actually came with the SAS 'kit' that i bought from Robb, which was made by CoryL (CRL Customs) the same guy that did JoshC's sas.

The chrome pieces came with my X, i actually have a 2 door XL and not a sport. But the rear pieces from a 4 door will fit. I measured them. THoes chrome pieces are actually painted black now

haha, true

I scuffed the plastic chrome a bit with a 3m pad, cleaned it really good with a cleaning solvent, i then used the aerosol spray in paintable bed liner, and topped that off with a few coats of semi-gloss black paint. I used the same procedure with my front and rear bumpers too, which were chrome to begin with. Look at the pic of my truck on the RTI ramp, everything is black (the most current pic.)

the bedliner was what i was thinking bout using. Yeah noticed that evrything was black and was wondering if you painted or just bought new bumpers that were black.
But thanks for the info. Hopefully i can get by the junk yard and pick up some stuff and start painting it all.

Those new wheels look even better in person. :thumbsup: BTW, I don't remember if I asked you, but what percent tint do you have on there?
