Im thinking of integrating a license plate box with led lights lighting it up and shaving the gate handle not at an angle just were the emblem reseeds, I already have a sir michals smooth roll pan (steel) coming this week that i have ordered for a month now. Im not sure on how its going to look/fit My truck is going into the shop sometime this month for a paint job (flat black). My truck is a 4x4 ex cab lb single wheel.I have 20inch mamba wheels sitting in the shop.My truck is leveled out. I also have a 8inch black mitre cut stack with a custom aluminum black bed cover I fabbed up. I will have the emblems shaved and completely gone. I have a reflexxion cowl and 5% tint. just to give ya a ideal of were im going with it completely murdered out. But I will have a dark cherry red pin stripe and the chrome on the wheels will be painted dark cherry red also. If i posted pics Its just a maroon ex cab truck most of the parts are set aside in boxes or on order. Im wanting it to be done and seen in one glance instead of piece by piece. so sorry guys if there is any suspense to this thread. I am also contemplating on shaving my door handles also. so here is my thoughts so let me see what ya guys think.

thanks

Sounds a lot like this:


I wouldn't shave the handles on a daily driver...I made that mistake once...never again.

Well this is not necessarily a daily driver more a of a toy. yes, I didnt know your gate was shaved. looks great. If I were to shave my doors what are the pros/cons of them and what kit would be the best in your personal op? what brand roll pan do you have ?

thanks for a quick response !!

Shaving the doors was just a pain. The solenoids never worked right, crap came loose....just a pain in general.
That's a Sir Michaels pan in that pic. I have a Street Scene now that's about to get replaced with a weld in one from Grant Kustomz with LED strips for lights then I'm shaving the tail lights....and a bunch of other stuff.

Now that you mention it i thought of shaving the tails and fitting in a 1/2inch x12inch long led strip with signals recessed and such.. along with my line of fire.Im a sucker for leds! but too much would be damaging to the looks. And something else I have looked into it is the hitch, Im wanting to slide it back and install sled stops. I pull and race the truck every once in a while. some more food for thought i guess?

thanks rich !

I agree with Rich - I'll never shave a door again, or drive one that has them for that matter. too much of a PITA.

something similar to this maybe?

I had never seen it done before, so I just started cuttin. You can learn a lot lookin at the older street rods, and the older guys that drive them with all the body work they did.

Aim/Chassis Tech has some cheap, 1/2 ass fitting ones. Mine are Grant Kustomz. Either one will be listed mainly as fitting an F-150

okay I just ordered a shaved door handle kit with 50lbs solenoids and all the fixens from auto lock, some of my mini truck guru's sent me there. I also bought some 12inch long ghost taillights with weld in buckets, and a 60inch light for the back of the cab. Have I gone too far ? LOL

The last shaved door kit I had was Auto-Lock. All it did was lock me outta my truck. LOL
Just my opinion...but I think you'll regret shaving the doors.

As badd a$$ as shaved door handles are, seriously think twice about it. I had AutoLoc's kit which is a top notch kit and I still had issues all the time. Just think about how often you hop in and out of your truck. Now think that every time you want in you have to hit a button. If you do go with them, make sure you at least run poppers and crimp the CRAP out of the cables that you hook from the solenoid to the latch. Those thend to come loose
