    Rear Wheel Well Trim

    Yes, I removed both the rear wheel well flare and underlying trim. I think one of my photographs show a bare wheel well under masking tape and plastic. However, I do think its certainly possible to keep the trim on and mask if one is able to use a lift or jack and remove the tires. I don't think there is enough room to spray and get a good application if you leave both the trim and tires on.

    image98, just wanted to say thank you for your extremely informative and detailed posts here. I was able to easily wire up fog lights on my truck using the information you posted here. In my case I ended up using cables and watertight connectors from McMaster-Carr. It's pretty time consuming making custom wiring harnesses when you are soldering every crimp and double and triple heat shrinking everything, but it's worth it when everything looks perfectly OEM when complete.

    Here are the details on the connectors I used:

    And here are the connectors on the lights themselves and the wiring harnesses:

    And the final product:

    Amazing attention to detail, and I am VERY impressed with your work. Question, is the Gorilla 96644BDX the actual part # for the lug nuts which fit our Raptor, or do we need to enter additional thread information in addition to the 96644BDX?

    I used the same bracket you did, made by Diode Dynamics. Great price and simple design.

    Gorilla Lug Nuts


    Hi, that is the manufacturer and exact part number for the wheel lock 24 pack. I ordered my set through summit. It comes with a socket key, but obviously you will need a ratchet and socket (if I recall it is a dual hex 13/16 and 7/8) or lug wrench. I contacted Gorilla directly (instructions included in box) and ordered a spare key. Costs $15.

    Gorilla Lug Wrench GOR-PW1 (good to keep in the truck with key and socket)
