Some mods to the Splash

Yeah I have been doing some work on the truck getting it cleaned up and what not.

I cleaned my truck at my buddy's house and took some pics that is his big Sierra in the background.

Not sure why the interior pics came out small but you get the idea lol.

Order the 3/4 kit dont waste your time on a 2/3 because youll eventually want to drop it more in the future go as low as you can static dropped first.

its only a matter of time after that youll want to bag it then bodydrop it lol.

Yeah thanks the guy who owned it before me put this really small red grant on there and it was really dumb looking and it covered the gauges so when I was driving I had to look under or over the wheel so I changed it. It is a nice wheel very comfortable.

Personally, I like the decals on a Splash. Makes it stand out. Not too sure about the black though. You might want to photoshop different colors on it. And just for the record, leave it stock height, or lower it a little.

never understood why ford had a black rear bumper on the splash, when everywhere else is painted to match the truck. i think you should paint the rear bumper to match the truck.

Yeah I have plans to lower it a little prob a 2/3 drop and put some 17's on it. The guy that owned the truck before me I think hit something and he put that bumper on there is bothers me too, but I am going to go ahead and get the whole truck painted. The Seirra has a FabTech 9 in lift and has the 5.3 motor with a K&N full intake it is fun to go of road with him. What color Splash stripes do you guys think would look best?

Well it is pretty much a custom job I am a Parts Sales Manager at AutoZone and used the universal one that we sell and some couplers and what not and ordered a mass air adapter from the internet. With my discount at work I think for everything I payed like $50 or so but you could do the same and you looking at about $60-70
