I think you need to make ten posts to insert images. I couldn't find anything in the help section.

There are directions around here on how to add them to your gallery and share them.  Not sure if you still need a post count for those as well.

Looks nice.  I couldn't lower mine since I need the ground clearance for winter time.

That looks sweet.  I didn't really care for the stock denali grille but it looks great in black.

What did you use to darken the edges of the headlights?

Thanks everyone i think it cane out pretty dang good especially for painting 90% of it myself and it looking Profesional. All the lights were smoked with clear coat that i added some carbon black metallic too. The front i had to spray whole light then keep spraying sides with smoke and start spraying front with clear to get the fade look.

Looks great, I wonder how the bushings, tie rods, etc.. will cope with the lowered suspension.  I used to lower all of my cars, some took it well, others not so much.
