Success! I installed my OEM protector today and it looks great, the info provided in this thread really helped. One nice side effect is that the dark green color really seems to bring out the blue in my Deep Water. This color has a chameleon property to it, in my opinion, lots of times it looks more green to me than blue but the contrast of the protector makes it look blue again. Love this color, and love this truck!
Next little project will be the installation of some stainless steel bed rails, I'll get that done after work some night this week and will post some pics in the visual modifications forum. I know some folks have been looking for chrome, I think these will look just as sweet.
