Good lookin truck, and nice angles for the shots with her lifted! Told you coilovers are worth the cost... Honestly if I ever upgrade to another half ton in the future, one of the first mods will be coilovers due to their high reward to cost ratio. Can't to see what is coming next! Have you decided on a tonneau cover yet?

Afgixxer’s 2018 Silverado Stormtrooper Build

Postby Afgixxer [OP] » Jul 07 2018, 10:57pm

These weren’t on my radar, but being recommended to me, I ordered some wheel liners on Wednesday. They arrived today and got them installed.

I got to say these weren’t very easy to install. They come with u-clips which you have to hold behind the liner as you put the bolt in because I don’t see how the clips would slide over the dense plastic of the liner. Some of the holes at the bottom didn’t line up either.

The liners do clean it up quite well don't they? I have the stock ones in mine and honestly I don't have an issue with them. Snow likes to stick to them in the winter is the biggest issue but being I have a truck and things aren't that tight down there it's not too big of a deal. If I didn't have them when I got the truck I would have went with what you got. You'll appreciate them and it'll save your truck a few years of rust..........or at least cover it up!

Also I think it's time to unbolt that lower half of your front air damn! That's free except for the beer you drink while doing it!

You mean the plastic part under the front bumper? Why should I remove it?

I don't know give you a little more clearance up front. Of course you are plenty high now............most everyone does who lifts their truck. Check mine out. mines gone mike removed the whole thing and made an insert. All personal preference.
