It looks good, I had both shaved on my previous Dakota. Radio reception will suck even if you get a antenna relocator kit. Get XM unless you have a bunch of cd's

if i shave the handles do i have to re-paint the whole door or could i make it to where i can only paint the 5 inches around it and wet sand the door and re clear the whole door?
thanks for any info

I just mounted my antenna inside the fender....radio isnt any weaker than it was before.....i shaved my tailgate, antenna, and holes in the fenders from the v8 emblems......wanna do the door handles someday....but i can wait.....And its best not to just blend one panel..When you add clear it will darken the door a shade and it might stand out.........you might want to blend a little into the cab and maybe onto the front fender to make it look right....depending on the color of the truck

don't do it on your daily...only on your liesure....just a pain sometimes. But keyless is a must for every vehicle.

Yeah.....I have a buddy that shaved his daily driver....sometimes his pullers get out of adjutment and he has to go through the passenger door to get in.....and it depends onthe climate...I live in missouri so when the snow and ice come and your doors get frozen shut youre screwed

I put a hidden release on my dak (daily driver). Dont go out and buy a "hidden cable", get a throttle choke cable for $10-$20 @ a local parts store, its the exact same thing just less expensive. As for blending the paint... a good paint a body shop can blend it fine without repainting half your truck.
