I think a colormatched grille and bumper would look really good on there. A 4/5 drop and 18s would look sick too, but it is a new truck lol. Take off that bugshield too!

1.) take off the bugshield.
2.) get a colormatched front bumper and chrome grill.
3.) do a 2/3 drop on it
4.) get some 18" Mustang Bullit wheels wrapped in Nitto's
5.) cold air intake
6.) Flowmaster exhaust

then it'd look HELLA sick!

Also, clear corners would be a nice touch!

i had planned on getting the 2008 sport grill with the horizontal black bars, i'd kinda like to do a 3" spindle lift, but maybe i'll lower this truck and buy a beater truck for all my offroading.

I don't have any problem with view with this tool box. Available at Lowe's for around $150 plus tax.

i really like his truck, i'm just trying to decide between that or lowering it. i just don't wanna end up lifting it and wishing i'd lowered it, and vice versa.

Well, I say lift it! Even if you dont offroad, you wont be as limited to go where you want as you would if you lowered it. It makes the truck more versatile IMO. Ranier on RPS doesnt off road either, he just did ti for looks...and it looks really good!

I love the black and tan look. So I would get some black wheels, and color match the bumper, leave the grille as is. blacked out headlights and corners...i say drop it too.

I'm not lifting or lowering mine, I'm keeping it stock because I have a bad back and getting in and out of the truck easily, is important to me. Right now it fits me perfectly and I don't want to change that.
