Clear corners if you can find them. A billet grill. 2006 emblems or acetone the ones you have. Niteshade the taillights. Chrome tailgate handle. Chrome inserts for your door handles. Those are some relatively inexpensive items- ranging from almost free to $100 or so. Window tint is another.

Tint the windows, silverstar turnsignals/headlights/fogs....there's alot of stuff you can do under a $100 to change the look of your truck.

the only thing available is a plastic chrome cover. Nothing wrong with that because it looks good. I have to buy about $3,000 worth of them to be competitive. That's a bunch of handle covers. lol

they ain't cheap, although they probably should be.

Double sided tape, yea.

You can find some that don't include the tailgate handle for a cheaper price.
