put a lower valance on the bumper, particuarly a splash valance, and maybe a little bit more tire next time? looks fantastic though

As already said, front bumper, tint windows and the interior. An explorer OHC is a good start for the inside.

That is soooooo clean bro. I love that shade of green with the chrome and billet and clears. I would say go with a small cowl hood, or maybe a valance for your front bumper. Maybe like a StreetScene bumper cover or something would be neat.

Really though,you have such a cleanly done truck that doing much more will throw off the entire look and ruin all your great looking work.

If you're only going to do one thing, I would say 20% tint on the side and rear windows,either black or black with silver flame print,but none of that gay mirrored tint.

Color match the front bumper and tinting the windows is a must.

What are those, 205/40ZR17's? I put those on my truck but decided they were too small. I'm gonna go the tougher route and tuck a larger tire. The truck looks good, but I'm with the other guys, the wheel/tire combo doesn't do it for me.

I ran 205/50/17s on my old B2200,but hated them and went down to a 205/40/17 and they looked just right and the truck drove and handled 10x better.

You just need a set of Bullitts on there with the dark grey spokes and polished lip. That would look secksy, or just a really plain 5 spoke wheel. Something simple and classy,just like the rest of the truck. The current wheels almost err on the side of tacky.

While I'm in an idea giving mood...

Interior:

-Flamed Inidglo gauges,the white ones with blue flames
-Billet *****,switches,handles,rearview mirror,pedals,shift **** (I'm a sucker for billet)
-Put in a kickin stereo system if you havent already. 10" wedge boxes behind the seats,or do a pair of 8" subs in a waterfall console.

Engine bay

-chrome and billet dress up items
-cold air intake

Yeah i agree with about everything said towards the truck I do need a valance havent decided which one to put back on it and i want to go with the solid chrome bumper with no molding
as far as interior i had already decided to do the heated leather explorer seats and console just waiting on the local junk yard to get a set of black or green ones in.
Johnbaum13 you was close on the wheels i think the tires are around that size but they are 18's and if i go with the next size up they hit the heater box when i lay it out so to run a bigger tire ill have to go down on wheel size.
i will be throwing some tint on the windows as soon as it warms up enuff to do it cops dont give us much trouble around here as far as tint so when i do tint the windows it'll be 2 1/2% i like em dark
crazymikey i already have just the white indaglow gauges in it and its not a big kickin system i already have 1 12" audiobahn with a 800 watt chrome amp i cant really fit one behind the driver seat lol leg room issues
