Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!

Thank you! Need to figure out how to get the stain out of the tailgate trim where the original dealer emblem was. Any ideas anyone?

If you want to retain the original factory appearance with an anodized finish possibly having the aluminum trim piece re-anodized would remove the blemish. I had my rear cab aluminum trim and corner pieces re-anodized and they turned out like brand new factory finish. It was not cheap to have done but worth it to me. Other folks on this site have polished the pieces to a high finish, you can probably look that up if that is the type of end result you are looking for.
Good Luck

I had mine done at the finishing touch in Chicago. I have included the link above. They were a very busy place, if I remember it took 2 to 4 months to get done but their work is outstanding. Look at their web site to see the type of quality work they do.
Good Luck with your project

Thank you! Tire sizes are 275/60 15 rear and 255/60 15 front. Drop is 6" up front and the rear is a flip kit which I think is 6" as well. I like some rake
