    Woot De-chrome my H2

    Hey guys, just finished de-chroming my H2....i left some chrome so it still has some contrast with the black....what did you guys think....completely black-out.
    I used 3 coats of VHT Nite-Shades black translucent and 2 coats of Duplicolor Clear Coat for all the light housing, 2 coats of Duplicolor Bed Armor for the roof racks, 3 coats of Duplicolor High Gloss Enamel and 3 coats of Duplicolor Clear coat for hood latch, fuel door, side mirror cover, hood handle, front grill and license plate holder and of course a good sunny day.

    Sexy!!!

    That's the perfect amount of chrome I think. Wheels, door handles, and emblems.

    It's perfect!

    God your truck is sexy. Want 38s!!!

    Edit:

    Looking harder I think you need to take some bedliner and cover the skid and the rear apron and it will be perfect.

    Yeah, Looks Great! But I do agree with Tackett the front and rear bumper should be black.

    I like the silver lower lip bumper that's why i never painted them black...it also the indication of the newer 08-09 model.

    I agree! There was one for sale here a few years ago. It was black, lifted, had 40s on it. I opened the door and saw that that BEAUTIFUL Sedona interior and I fell in love! Then I found out the price

    Do you have factory trailing arms?

    And how heavy is that new style winch? The original style was smaller looking and heavy as @&$%

    Yes, i still have the factory trailing arms, i'm surprise with all the abused this truck had, it still in good condition.

    The winch with the cradle weigh around 110lbs. The only problem i have now with this set-up is i have to remove it when i want to open the hood. I'm looking to permanently install it on the front.

    I just finished installing the 1" bodylift and replaced the 1.5" rear coil spring spacers with 2". Truck sits pretty level now.

    I still have to replace the left rear axle shaft, the flange has a bit bent and caused a little wobble.

    OEM navigation that i bought from ebay just came in and i'll be installing it by this week as well.

    Here's some mud spa shot.....
