Seeking Mod Ideas

As the title states, I'm at a point where I don't know what I want to do with the rig and cost has reached a state where I have limited options. Since I don't have 4x4 capability, I'm not looking for lifting the truck or bigger tires. Some of the mods I've been contemplating are more cosmetic than practical, but I'm open for ideas nonetheless. I doubt I've thought of everything so to speak. Anyways, I don't have any current photos being the truck needs a heavy washing, but here are a few that give an idea of it's current configuration. I've thrown in a mods listing for shiites and giggles.

Tinting and black out headlights are the most likely future mods.

I've said it before Zach, the tires stay as is. I like the honey comb grill personally, so I don't think I'll change it over to billet. As for the mudflaps, I might remove them to see what it looks like, but again, they serve a purpose so I've left them on.

Blacked out headlights. Nightshaded tails. And the number one thing you should do is tint.

Honestly...when I look at your interior shot, everything looks so good. But then I see the seats. I say get either some power black or gray leather Explorer bucket seats to work with your center console. It just sticks out to me like a sore thumb in the pictures. Other than that, tinted windows is a must!

Edit: Oh yea and take all those stickers off man! Line X, Eat Sleep Go Fishing etc... You asked for opinions and I think the truck would just look alot cleaner if those were left off!

Tails stay as is. Certain things I like the way they are, that's one of them. As for tint, that appears to be the next "major" mod.
