Hmmm....Maybe. Ive also modded amber corners. It gives a subtle difference. Kinda like Pedro's tail-lights.

i painted the whole chrome part satin black. it made the outside ring and reflector bright and the clear part just glowed a little. looked pretty sweet. i didnt have my headlights modded bu i think they would complement each other nicely, especially on a red truck.

Looks awesome! Definitely 06' corners though. I had clears on my 03' then loved the stock ambers on my 02' then love love love my 06's. Took a day or so to grow on me though. Red grill looks great in the parking lot shot. Looks kinda off in the 1st shot. Keep it up.

Lets face it... CHROME $ucks, it is that easy.

The truck looks great with the RED surround and good paint job.

You need a little time to adjust to it.

Only change might be the 04 “Vertical Bars”, those can go.

Chg #2, I know “only" mean one but the black bumper, too much chrome, after market bumper maybe a winch.

And onto another subject, another post asked for pic of before/after new camber bolt kit… why did you add the bolt kit ?

Oh ya, get rid of the headlights.

as previously stated, a camber/caster kit is used for alignments. makes it easier and gives more degrees of adjustment than the stock stuff. Simple google search and you'll see what they do. Anything bigger than stock sized tires, it gets harder to align and straight from the factory, you have no caster adjustment. with these you do.

bumper isn't getting changed or painted but they lights will be replaced within time. i really don't care about them right now lol

Also remember when you get another STX Grille it will slide in without a problem.

Keep it red, it will grow on you.

Looking good, though I was a bigger fan of the chrome grill. Broke up the front end a bit...made it pop. Went well with your bumper
