The rear windows are still there... I just put the wrap over them because I have the 3rd row stripped out and 1/4" plywood lineing the rear with shevles on eather side. thought about makind doors on eather side where the windows are but thats just too much work for the outcome for me. Can't wait to get the 3" more lift on it and the ranch hand brush guard :banana:

Hey sorry I missed your question before... I ordered the kit from http://www.trailmasteroutdoors.com/ Very good company and fast shipping. I ordered the 180 Sq. Ft Compact Truck or Suv Kit.. cost a bit but I think the outcome was worth it! I had enough to do my whole van, I didn't do where the roof rack is though, just from the roof rack to the windshild, I am going to spray can bed liner the roof where the roof rack is.

I think it will, it seams really tuff



Its all and all easyer then window tint to install. if you look on youtube there are how to videos that I watched that helped. its just all about the prep work. I washed, then scuffed (not needed but I did anyway) then went over the whole van with Wax and grease remover a few times. very hot heat gun helped with curves and helping it adhear faster

Thanks guys... I will get some more pics up when I lift it more and get the ranch hand bumper grille guard on! the grille guard has 4 off road lights on it so you wont even see the grille, I thought about doing that and the grille too but too much work to just hide it soon.

The T bars are maxed and I trimmed and beat what ever was rubbing out of the way! My 235's are near balled and when we had the blizzard come a month ago I had to do something the day before to make it to work! still rubs on the inner fender at tight turns but just makes noise doesn't hurt anything.
