Icon14 New mods and New pics!

As titled, I did some new mods to my truck. First off replaced my shocks with some KYB Monomax's front and rear, I love these things they ride really smooth, and really leveled out the truck, seemed to give it more lift as well. Also had to replace both my outer tire rods, got some Moog's performance tie rods for the same price as stock from advanced auto parts, they gave me a deal since they didn't have stock ones when I went to go pick them up, which I thought was nice. Repainted my frame, dumped my diff fluid and changed it, it was gross. Night shaded my tails, got a all red 3rd break light, I have blacked out headlights and corner lights coming from ebay on Teusday which will make the truck look even better. Washed and waxed the truck today, and polished up my rims didn't shine them but just got all the oxidation off, I need to get some megiuars polish.

Some parking lot shots, and I found a nice field on the way home.

Very nice Kyle. Your truck look sbetter every time I see. I don't really like the tails though. You should leave the reverse lights white, might look a little better.

For the 2 people who asked me about my paint on the frame, It was rustolem gloss black from the hardware store, gave the frame, axel, and a-arms about 2 good coats of it.

I actually plan on stripping ALL the night shade off the tails, going back to the stock look and i'll throw some clear coat on them

Thanks guys for the comments..

Quick update: got my black headlights and corner lights, they look really good on the truck, makes it stand out more IMO, put my gap guards in, and de-nightshaded my tails.

Here's some pics

I have both options the magnaflow or the flowmaster at advanced auto parts.. the magnaflow is $100 and the flowmaster is like $94 or $95.. . I'm not too sure yet I've considered what you stated as well.. Thanks guys! I think once I get that grille it will really set the truck off nicely... that won't be for a bit though..

Looks great all around! I'm glad you took the niteshade off of the tails too!
Get some gap guards and cut the tail pipe off somewhere.
