thanks looks good you got a pic of the front yet I wanna see how you have the blinker or if you just got a new different blinker

I might do away with the blinker and re locate it.

Do the same with the fronts like he said lol! That's what I did before I got cloaks. Then I used door edge trim to make the finish look better.

The door edge trim worked great on the rear fender flares

Just remount the stock blinkers to the plastic on the inside of the fenders.


I just drilled a few holes and went zip tie happy. Ok i used 2 zip tires. I did have to trim the plastic a bit to get the light to sit at the angle i wanted. Just be creative with it.

I used the door trim but after the front trim being pulled off by small tree branches i just said forget it. I cleaned up my cut and used a sharpie on it. Looks factory now.

What's up with the crazy intake?!!? Lol

Its just a custom snorkle. I used a pre cleaner that goes to the stock air box. It was alot of custom trimming and sealing. Its a big pain really. But it works. Yes all tubes run up to the box and are sealed (but thats it).

More for looks as i still have yet to go in water deep enough to enter the doors. I have been in water that was about 1/4 inch away from entering the door.

I cut my fronts as well and just followed the line along the blinker so i didnt have to relocate it.

Did you paint them also??

thgr8alex 07-16-2013 08:31 PM

Ya i removed all 4 to make it easier to cut and while they were off i sanded down 1)to paint and 2)to round off the edged after i cut them. Win win situation.

Nice, what kind of paint and primer did you use??

thgr8alex 07-17-2013 09:04 AM

I didnt use a primer i just made sure i did a good job sanding them uniformly and got krylon fusion spray paint and put about 2-3 coats on them.
