Clean But Not Shaven

Shaving the accessories on your truck to smooth the body lines is one of the most common ways to get that extreme custom look. But what if your budget doesn't have enough flow for cutting, welding, filling, shaping, priming, and painting? Well, that's where aftermarket bolt-ons come in.
You can achieve a good smooth, respectable look without having to compromise functionality or finances. Simplifying a truck's visual appearance allows the suspension, rolling stock, or whatever bold mod you've made to stand out. Cleaning up the stock look is as easy as changing the color and texture of the accessory components to match the color and texture of its surrounding components.

C/K Restorations in Hewitt, Texas, is a one-stop shop for most any replacement or aftermarket accessory to enhance the appeal of your '88-'98 GM truck. We had the company send us the basic components to smooth our lifted '97 Chevy Tahoe. We installed the new components, and without fail, they truly added the fine detail the truck needed to complete the desired look.
Johnny Law Says
Depending on your state or city ordinance, running white bulbs and non-orange reflective corners up front may get you some unwanted attention from Johnny Law. The mods we made don't negatively affect our driving ability or other drivers' abilities, so we decided to take a chance in the hopes that the five-o will understand we have no bad intentions. It would be best to check your local laws before deciding on making the mods we did.
