My Truck

My name is James and I have a 2002 2wd XLT. I've been on here for a little while, but I am just now getting around to introducing myself and showing everyone my truck. I also need help deciding on my next mod, ideas?

thats a good looking start, which direction do you think you want to go? you like sport trucks or lifted ones? i think itd look good with a nice set of wheels and a sporty drop

Im gonna say a nice 5/4 drop would look great! unless you wanna lift it, but unless you want it for offroading, the loss in fuel economy with big tires just isnt worth it if youre doing it for looks.

Welcome to the club, James. I'd say you need some wheels. You gonna lift it or lower it or keep it stock? Those are the things to think about when deciding on what wheels.

EDIT: I love the color. The silver ones go faster.

I love your truck...it's very clean looking. Me personally, I'd rip the mudflaps off, and cover the holes with 04+ hole covers. And throw on a DJM 4/5 kit w/ 17" bullits.

Welcome to the site. That's a real nice clean truck. I love the color, the grill and tonneau cover. I'm not into the whole dropped truck scene so my suggestion is always do a lift, even a small one. A 3" body lift with some bigger tires and a nice set of wheels will make heads turn.

Thanks everyone! I'm more into the lowered trucks, but after having my exhaust welded up, I don't think I can lower it very much, if at all, without having some clearance issues. We will see.
