new rims, rollpan, exhaust, and niteshaded tails

So in the past few weeks Ive gotten a lot done to the truck. In early april I put on a rousch roll pan with a new custom exhaust coming out of the cut out. I also put on a black 6" stubbie antenna and niteshaded my tails and third brake light.

Just last night, I finished throwing on my new rims and tires. They are Motegi M5s wrapped in 245/40/18 Toyo Proxes FZ4s.

Now all I hafta do is trim the roll pan to meet with the bed lines of my truck. I am going to do a crescent cut on each side to make the roll pan mold in nice with the body.

Heres some pics of the recent work and how the truck looks now. Tell me what you think!

I did the ricer exhaust just cuz it molded into the roll pan nicely. plus my truck is looking more tuner now so thats the direction im going with it. dont worry, im not gonna be even close to ricing this truck out. I would buy a Civic if i wanted to be a ricer

you need a big aluminum wing to go along with the fart can.

get one and mount it to the ARE cover.

And some of those lighted windshield fluid sprayers. But man seriously, I would get a different rollpan it doesn't seem to fit with the bed too well. The rest of your truck looks good but that just ruins it.

I liked the A/Ts!!

I would change the exhaust, raise the rear 2" for a rake, trim the pan, paint the rims black, and wax!

besides that Ill be going low soon enough.. muhahaha.. just a 2/2 with an old school feel..

No offense but.....why would you put that type of muffler on it?? I think a si/do with the lightning style exit exhaust would look 100x better and sound better.... Sorry, but trucks shouldn't have that type of exhaust imo. Other than that it looks nice.

I wasn't trying to sound rude or anything.. but usually those type of exhausts are on cars, or whatever. Its your truck, if you like it then thats what counts.
