After a detailing

I know the picture isnt the best since it was almost dark. But its my truck after a detailing. Does anyone have any suggestions for future mods besides larger tires?

Not sure I've ever seen the headlight mod on a silver ranger, but that might look cool. Or at least do clear corners. 2006+ fender badges.

Love your truck btw. I want to be double lifted, but wasn't sure how the 33's would look until I could re-gear and get 35's. It actually dosn't look all that bad.

What you can do that would make it stand out a little more is black out the tail lights and side markers. Automotive clear coat and black paint is needed. All you need to do is remove the lamps (not the bulbs, the whole light itself) and scuff them with a gray scotch brite. Mix up 2oz of clear coat and put 2 grams of straight black paint into the clear coat, mix and spray. It will take app. 3 coats to get the darkness you need. Hope this helps, Any questions let me know!

Ah ok, well there is plenty you can do, why not a two tone color on the truck, Silver and chrome is too close in color, no affense, but what about getting the rims painted?! Ur truck is very nice and clean, maybe look into some low profile step sides, or brush guard?

It's really tough to say what to do next, it looks great as it is. I see you have some 06 mirrors, so also say go with the 06 badges and a billet grille. If you don't have tint, do that also.

theres something horribly 80's about being that lifted and making biggish tires look that small and i kinda like it haha.

keep your amber corners, keep your mesh grill, keep your older badges, og fx4 ftmfw. lose the bug deflector, maybe body match your handles and chrome mirror caps. or just keep saving for the 35's and regear.

I personally think it looks good other than adding 35s. If it were mine, I would buy 06+ corners and badges, ditch the big ugly bug shield for possibly a clear one if your that concerned about your paint and possibly front tint if you don't already have it. Other than that, spray bomb your frame black and keep it clean. Looks good.
