Re: Tex's 14' JGC Billet Silver Overland

Second mod was to change all the logos from chrome to black, third mod was to wrap the chrome window trim, tail light bezels, rear step pad surround, and grill rings.

On my 14, the step pad won't come off without bumper removal because of the tabs in the rear of the pad. Unless I'm mistaken, which hopefully I am.

Re: If you were to give up your GC today, what would you get?

Surprised more people wouldn't go the truck route, it was between this F-150 and the Overland for me. The Overland won obviously, it was more practical for me at this time.
