Some thoughts

So yall know I wrecked the truck, I'm replacing the grille, bumper and valance. Stone and I were talking last night about putting a STX grille on there and a chrome bumper, what do yall think? I'm going with a 03 valance but i don't know about the bumper and the grille yet. Here's a pic of what I'm thinking about just with a STX grille:

It's either the STX grille or the 04 grille with Winks inserts.

Here's a pic of the STX grille:


and here's a pic of my truck for reference, I have clear corners and 06 emblems now too:

Yeah thats what I'm leaning towards right now, I think the chrome might be a little too much for the front.

Haha yeah, 3 grand later... Thats what the plan is right now, just might take me a little bit. The whipple might be excessive, if I'm gonna go for speed I'll just swap in a 5.0. Thats not high on my list right now so blah.
