Beautiful truck man! I'd take those chrome stick on things off the door handles and tailgate handle. Tint for sure and 35s with FX4 wheels.

I would get some 33's with aftermarket wheels, and take off or color-match the chrome handles. Although new wheels might complete the chrome look.

PHP gryphon tuner!!!! and wheels/tires. if you tow get 33s, if not get 35s. im prolly gettin 33/12.50 km2s. i would get the 18" fx4 rims if you dont have the cash to get aftermarkets. i wonder how those black monsters would look in an 18. when the time comes for me its between the moto metal 951s, black XD monsters, the black XD addicts, or the black and machine XD addicts. i saw the black/machined addicts on a truck and bout jizzed myself. i dont like a solid murdered truck, and i dont like alot of chrome. im goin w/ the stock fx4 look w/ the painted bumpers and stuff w/ the only chrome being the badges, exhaust tip, and maybe just a tad on the wheels like on the lip or just accented

Level it out with some bigger tires and some rims... but not chrome

Or you could get black headlights... they would look good on you truck

This is a buddy of mines truck... those are the lights and go with dark wheels

id get rid of the chrome handles. no doubt 100% the first thing I would do with that trruck.


Sweet truck man! it looks like it will be a fun project.

ive never been a fan of the duals under the bumper exhaust set-up. i might do something like that.

and then i would paint that grill black and slap on some nice dark tint
