IMO stick on hood scoops and and side ports look terrible on any vehicle. Post pics of your truck and whether you are going for a sreet or off road look.

since your in Ontario, i think you should get a lift and bigger ties. snow and a lowered truck just don't mix.

Your 2wd right? You can do a spindle and a shackle/AAL in the back for pretty cheap. Then just get some 33" all terrains and it will look like a totally different truck.

Only a total n00b would put a fake hood scoop on a vehicle. Looks fast, but its not.

You can but you won't get much lift out of them, 1-1.5" max before max. You have the lower keys anyway, you can get 1-2" out of switching to a pre 08 key.

if that's a 2WD, then doing ANY scoops would make it look stupid IMO. Plus, any stick ons suck anyway... they always turn my head, but for the wrong reasons. Butt ugly.

IMO... just look into a set of rims and some more aggressive tires. It will make a huge difference.
Please don't put that stick-on hood scoop crap.. looks cheap and tacky!
