Finally My ride is RAD!!!!

I will take pictures tomorrow, but i was to excited so i had to post right now. Took it out on a night on the town and got a few looks in it. Anyways my truck is just about finished, the mods include:
30x9.5 Bfg All terrains
15x7 black cragar soft 8s
Pro sound muffler dumped before axle
Baja Bumper (still gotta modified it)

All in all this truck turned out to be what exactly i wanted it to be a semi prerunner. I still wanna tint the windows and put a k&n cold air intake on it but other then that its done. Any suggestions on what percent of tint i should use? Also wanna put some of those black looking headlights on it and maybe smoke the tailights not sure though.

Your wasting your money all that is going to do is suck in the hot air from the engine. Find something with a sealed off air box.

um thats not really gonna do any thing if anything i might hurt the performance your stock airbox is a true cold air intake with that system is going to allow hot air from the engine bay into the air intake as where your stock system has outside air flowing into the intake
the only real restriction the stock intake system has is the rubber tube if you switch the tube to a smooth one and you have already done the airbox mod thats probably going to give you the most performance

I would go with a airraid or another companies dry filter personally. Don't get fooled by marketing, do your research first.

Get some nighshade and tint your tails (tape off your backing light though), and you can buy them headlight covers off ebay for show..
