well if you look at the HOW-TO you can see you need to sawzall a liitle piece off the back...... and its trimming on the shaver its self..... where the sides of the rollpan and side of the shaver meet.. it was like a wave, ecc did a shiity job trimming and cutting them, so we had to take a sander and smooth it out, and or air tools to help smooth....... and if you want to keep the light in the lisence plate, you either need to go through the frame and make a custom space for the light to fit, or what i found on eBay was just lights that go onto the lisence plate frame.....

all in all.... still a nice lookin mod for the stepsides..

i found it easy to install, the only thing i had to trim was the little peices on the rear, its pretty much un bolting bolts.

Ya mine is black and i got the black shaver kit so it's not that far off, just take it off the truck and have someone paint it...... should be about around $300 - $400


mines close enough for me right now though

if you take it off to get paint, it will be cheaper because they dont have to tape anything off, but i left it on fo paint.
