I am still waiting for my RRO Leveling kit. On the 15th of this month or next month I will order the whole bumper set as seen in the picture attached minus the Winch due to weight limit of mailing. I am even talking about the tow hooks, light, and skid plate. Then I will work on getting the CAI, jet Chip and an exhaust then the rest will be in the states. Oh yea Tomorrow I will be tinting the back light, reflectors and 3rd tail light.

Not too dark I hope otherwise tailights serve no purpose! I have yet to see a vehicle tint their lights (which I cannot understand why) and it look good but still safe and effective. I shall await your results!

Well I think I will like it if not they come off. Simple as that. All the stuff I have done so far is stuff that you can simply take off. The reason why I am doing this is because I think it looks good. With a little tint, it blends in with the trunk release trim.

Please upload the tails lights when finished also include what paint an steps you did .
Also are you going for a flat tinted tail light or glossy? I want too tint mine but I want a lite smoked look that's still glossy not flat

RRO Leveling Kit Complete

Before and after pics. Even though it looks like the front is higher than the back. It is not. After I put the RRO Bumper kit on there with the winch it will be better.

Did you have to get a front end alignment after you had the leveling kit installed?

What did the shop charge you to install? I'm getting ready to order my leveling kit but having trouble finding a shop that has a lot of confidence to do the work.
