What do I do next..?

I know this has happened to a lot of folks out there, so I need some help! I can't think of anything else to do to my truck right now without spending a LOT of money. So, I'm throwing the question to y'all. What would you do??

As of right now it's BL'ed and has 33x12.5's. You can basically see everything else I have done to it besides interior. so...

Maybe you'll come up with something.. I'm stumped.

Thanks!

Just paint the billet part, remove the 4x4 stickers and pick up a 4x4 emblem of a newer sport trac from the dealership

Hahahaha, yeah man.


I'm liking the painted billet idea, I tried messing with some pics today.. I'm probably gonna do it.

Also, I'd really love to snag a set of sport flares for it..

Keep the ideas coming!!!

i agree with painting the top billet grill. i say leave the bug guard because if you painted your grill black (assuming) then the black of the bug guard will compliment it rather well IMO. i think a nice set of stainless steel step rails would look good as well.

sorry but the nightshade looks worse then ricer and the turnsignal mirrors are almost as bad looking. overall looks like you drove threw a pepboys and just stuck things on it. i will vote for color match the door handles and hitting the front valance with some fresh black as well as the tool box.

Thanks man! I 'm really liking the idea of painting my grill. It's just actually doing it. Lol. Once I do it theres no turning back!

I also like the idea about painting my tool box... but I've heard few success stories from folks doing that. Anyone ever had any luck from painting a box?

I have a deck and subs rstangboi, but the idea of a tuner has crossed my mind several times. Want to send me some money? I'll order one asap! Thanks man!

I think the biggest problem right now is choosing between black and chrome. The wheels do absolutely nothing to help me, nor does the color of the truck.
I really appreciate the input from all you guys, thanks a lot! I'll keep posted on what I actually decide to do.

i like the paint the way it is, the black kinda surrounds the grille and isolates the chrome, but i think a bull bar, or brush guard (or grille what ever you want to call it) would look awesome
