You've still got a bumper there don't you? That plastic BS doesn't do anything but guide air to the rad that sits behind the a/c compressor. I pulled that POS thing about 5 years ago....even ran without a valence for 2 of those years and accumulating over 70k w/o that plastic junk, I'd say it's perfectly safe to remove it.

paint your wheels dark grey, not black. Take the plastic thing off that is surrounding the Radiator, get a Hitch installed in the front, 6k HIDs if you don't have HIDs already, and 06 emblems. Also get a Front skid plate.

Window covers?? Stick on hood vents?? ( I think those are worthless and look stupid ) I was almost thinking about the cab visor like Fx4wannabe01.

Tires are almost new. Have about 12,000 miles on them and still look new. I thought about trying to sell them and the rims for 800 to 1000 but idk.
