some ideas...

well I was planning on buying a set of 245/75/16 Goodyear Wrangler MTR's but the guy doesn't seem too interested in making a sale or doing what he said he would do so now I'm thinking about spending my money another way... I've considered buying a set of tail light covers like so...

some amber cab lights, window tint and black strip.
I've seen this only once before on a truck and it didn't look so bad... take a chrome diamond plate sticker or vinyl roll and put under door panels the length of the cab




just some ideas... let me know what you guys think

No fake diamond plate, no amber clearance lights and no taillights covers, all look terrible IMO. Yes on line of fire and definitely yes on tint.

why is it you don't like the taillight covers? personally i think they would look pretty good on my truck since both bumpers are chrome and i have clear headlights. I would post pics but I'm at work right now

I just don't like them personally, I'm not a fan of any stick on chrome though. Dude its your truck, don't let what we say online deter you from putting on something that you want, your the one looking at it everyday not us!

I won't do anything stick on for my lighs anymore. I learned the hard way. I bought a set of tail light covers for my 03 Sport Trac. I was driving down the interstate and noticed one fly off. Before I could get stopped to retrieve it, I watched a tractor trailor make it road kill. Buy the metal ones that screw on instead.
