    2007 EXT build

    Picked up my new to me 2007 EXT in December, and I can't leave well enough alone.
    I bought it, and it was totally stock (minus the paint job)
    • So far have installed 6K 55w HID fogs,
    • have a platinum front end coming
    • going to Plastidip all of the chrome and
    • lowering it 2/4 this week with some airbags in the springs to help with towing.
    • tinted the front windows 20%

    I don't see many EXT's on the forum so I thought I would post up some pics as I go through the process.


    Front windows after tinting


    Need to polish/get a new headlamp


    Soon to be replaced with a Platinum front bumper and grills


    Before the 2/4 lowering


    I will take some before and after pics of the chrome being painted black, I think it will look pretty good.

    Rear of the EXT is lowered



    Also installed a Magnaflow muffler 12909 sounds great, no drone on the freeway.

    Platinum front end is on the way, I will take pics as I install it.

    iSimple Isgm651 bluetooth connection

    Installed a new Dorman 949-001 compressor for the rear suspension

    Looks good need to see the full truck. Really like that color. You need to get it buffed though. not to bash just as a detailer that paint would really pop with a buff and some glaze and wax.

    looks real sweet, when you upgraded the fog lights did you need ballasts?

    Yes, when I installed the HID 55w fog lights I used the included ballasts

    Platinum front end is on (still need to install the proper hood chrome trim)

    Pretty happy with how it turned out.

    Up next is a headlight polish

    I was going to do it myself. But the body shop said that since they were painting it already they would install it for 1 hour of labor only ($75) and I knew it would take me MUCH more than 1 hour to install. So I had them do it.

    This is a shot with the new chrome Platinum strip on the hood.


    I read that you had to drill some holes to make it fit, but on my truck, I didn't, I just popped off the old one, and popped in the new one. Took 15 seconds.
    I will say that $140 for a piece of plastic is ridiculous.

    Re: 2007 EXT build

    yea a shop is charging 140 to install mine
    front clip. fender liners, chrome strip and led drls, parking lights and fogs
    thought that was a fair deal. They said it would take 2.5 hours.
    yours came out pretty damn clean.
