So I've been trying to figure out a direction I want to go with my truck now that its becoming a toy more then an everyday vehicle. With talking to some good friends from here on Facebook and what not, gathering up some opinions, I've finally found the way I'd like to go with it.

Thinking of keeping the height she has now but mounting on some 17x8 AR Torq Thrust M(Black w/Mach Lip) with some 305x70/17 BFG All-Terrain's on them. Then I want to do a Rollpan with a Hard Tonneau cover. Want to shave everything and add some Black Paint on the Tailgate like a Saleen S331 has then either Nightshaded 06 Tails or some Black LED Tails. Then on the front end I want to paint the Cowl on the hood black that comes down to the grille surround then that raised area the 04-05 valance has in Black as well.

Love to hear some Opinions or yay or nays on what I've described what I want my truck to look like.

I'd actually get them painted with diluted black paint instead of the flat look Nightshade gives them.

I'm only going to nightshade the 06's if I don't actually get some LED tails.
