Need Advice on everything !! 56K!!!

Ok A few questions!

Plans are black head lights instead of Chrome



My Trucks front as of now. Keep in mind I now have 18" black Cobra rims so Im doing a black and charcoal theme.



For a grill Im either thinking Black carriage works grill


or a STX Grill, keep in mind if I get the STX grill the chrome around the grill will be painted to match the color of the truck, it comes ready to paint.


For the headlights I have Silverstar ultras that I am keeping, however for amber turn signal lights I want to find some clear that blink amber or just go back to amber lights, any recomendations on these?

I will do a LED Smoked 3rd brake light


Should I get 06+ tail lights instead of keeping the 04s? Should I smoke them with clear coat?

I also want a black shorty antenna.

Oh also I plan on doing window tint as dark as AZ will allow. Anyone have any other suggestions? Sorry for large pics!

wow...lots of good options

I recommend the black carriage grill w' the euro headlights, or the stockers w' the STX grill...in any case, I vote for the STX grill w' the stock lights

if you go with clear corners, you can get LED bulbs that look clear when off, and amber when on...search out ebay or superbrightLEDs.com

not sure what the 06 taillights look like

That's what I want but matching the grill to the 03 is work... I just bought a black billet grill for the time being until I decide if it is worth it for the STX.

Definitely go with the STX grille, it stands out much more.

yeah I really like the STX grill, plus it keeps the FORD on it and Id like to get rid of the chrome around the grill housing too! I have to take out a 5 grand loan for a Snap-On tool box but I only need 4 grand of it. Captial one only lets me take out loans in 5's.
