Need help picking my next mod

So back in december i got 4 brand new 33x12.5x15 bfg all terrains and a 3 inch body lift. problem is my truck still looks to small, but i dont want to have to buy new tires because i have less than 5,000 miles on my current ones.
So any ideas to make my truck look bigger? Iv thought about getting 15x10's or maxing my t bars and squeezind 35's on there. what are yalls thoughts.
here is a pic

maybe swap the rear bumper out for a rollpan, so from the back it looks a little bigger maybe? theres nothing else you could really do man......ask zabeard or reuger or trigger or john griggs. they seem to be the most knowledgable guys on here. (no offense to anybody else)

i love ur truck now. I put a 3" body lift on my truck this week and im waitin on my 33x12.50 BFG Mud Terrains to come in on 15x10's so look for my pics in a few days when i get em and see what u think with the 15x10's. Meatier tires and 15x10's look better IMO. maybe get some mud terrains instead of a/t's and like i said 15x10's it will look somewhat bigger in the tire area

Im not sure how a wider wheel is going to make your truck look bigger. I know your wheels will probably sick out of your wells more, but nothing for height.

As far as I know there isn't much else you can do other than put the money down for the lift, its really the only way to get that front end up.

Wider wheels will make your tire look bigger, You can add a chevy drop shackle in the back and max your t-bars if they're not already. Just save up for a superlift/rcd

take off your front valence....that alway makes it look bigger. Put #1 torsion bars on it....and crank them. You could do the chevy shackles for 1.5" lift.

Thanks everyone. I already have #1 t bars and the t bars cranked up an inch but ill probably max them but i dont know about the shackles because i hate the stock raked look. Im still debating about the 15x10's though. Just dont know if they would b worth the $

To be honest, I like the way it looks now, and I wish I would have not gone up/down with mine when I had 33" bfg at's and 3" spindle lift.

I wouldn't change a thing.
