Here’s a question for you.
Did Custom Offsets use tire sensors that work with GM relearn tools?
I see that the orange tool says it may not work for aftermarket sensors. I was about to order one.

The truck is all done. I still want to get it on the lift at work and double check over everything to make sure I didn't miss any spots. But its coated from bumper to bumper. I also ran out of wool wax so I need to grab some more to spray the inside of the frame and crevices on the front half.

Next will be pulling the calipers off and painting them. I had planned on doing that this weekend but I didnt bring home my allen socket set. And I dont have one big enough at home to get the calipers off.

Looks good Eric. Maybe I missed it, but what did you use to strip the OEM wax?

I wire wheeled any areas that were loose/peeling then pressure wash the frame and find any other areas that may be peeling.

Then I treat any areas that I wire wheeled with a rust converter/inhibitor and let it cure. Then I just paint over everything else.

Whatever wax didnt come off after the wire wheel and pressure wash is stuck good enough to not be an issue. But if it does flake off, it will get fixed in my semi annual touch up. I go over everything in spring and fall, fixing any spots that are needed and cleaning the rockers, bed sides, and fenders.

Finally got my switch back strips today. So now I just need to get the mirrors off, tiny mirrors on temporarily and then start sanding lol.

I'm going to paint them myself. I got a bunch of stuff going on today so I'm shooting to get them pulled off tomorrow and at least get them torn apart to begin sanding.

Just ordered up some stuff to build a set of traction bars. Went a bit overkill, but I'd rather have them be over built than under built.

Still need to pick up some DOM tubing. Will get that local since shipping would be insane for the amount I need.

I'll probably make them around 60-68" long. I'd like to get them powder coated to match my intake piping, but I'll have to see how much some of the local places want. I domt want to end up spending as much as if I would have bought a set already made lol.

I should be in these, minus powder coat, for under $400 pretty easy. Image

Nice! And even if you do end up spending the same amount it’s cool to be doing it piece by piece
