Updates at the bottom

Well I am new here but figured I would post up the life of my truck since I got it. I got a few more things needed and I will be perfectly happy with it, not that I am not already lol. I bought the truck last October like this

Then this happened

Wreck back in December 08'

So first thing I really did was got a nice set of HIDs from The HouseofHIDs.com Awesome company and took excellent care of me and gave me an awesome deal for heads and fogs

So then I removed the ugly door trim and ugly chrome mirror covers. Paint the grill and lower bumper black(top part to come soon). Then this week I did the wheels. Soon I am getting the black "cups" for the door handles. So here is how she sits now. Tell me what you think about it. Also if you have any suggestions that would look good let me know. Yes I am considering the SS bumper clip lol.

Wheels before

Read guys lol. I said I am getting those off asap. Not going for the "murdered out" look really. I just am not a fan of chrome at all so trying to get rid of the majority of it. I like the wind visors on it also and no its not cause I smoke.

Looks good man. I like the wheels better black.

I would get rid of the vent visors, they look like shit. Once you get the colormatched handles and bumper cap it'll look a lot better.

Looks like your moving in the right direction. Like everyone else said, please lose the chrome handles. As far as the visors go, I didn't even notice them until the other members pointed them out. They're really not that bad IMO.

I think the chrome wheels looked better. Remove the hideous door handles and colormatch and it'll look better. Do esky handles :imo

Its a 4/6. I want 22s so freakin bad but right now I dont really have the money to drop on some. Also with how shitty the roads are where I live I think I would get a ton of "eggs" in my tires. I get them now and I drive as careful as can be. Also the reason the back has so much tire is that they are Blizzaks in the rear lol. They seem to look pretty big compared to the other tires I had on there.


The handles are going to be my Sunday project. I am thinking about painting those for now then getting some better ones when I get the money.

I thought this was a fake account haha. Nice rig.
Lol why would this be a fake account? I never really post on here cause the only times I have asked someone for advise I never get answered so I stopped asking people. So I am kinda surprised I got responses here lol
