Some new pics of the truck

Finally had some time today to snap a few new pics of the truck, nothing special. I think it's finally starting to come together, had a little ice storm too last night and the tires performed overall pretty well, took it easy tho no sliding.. Anyways here is some pics.





Hittin' up the car wash tomorrow going to try and clean these wheels atleast once a week to keep them in good shape. Next up 3 "body lift

i think you should leave the truck the way it is. i think those tires fit up in there nicely. imo i wouldnt do a bl. but thats just me. do you have t-bars or coils?

Coils, Dunno man I think it would look sick with a bl, I like it the way it is right now but it still sits to low for me. Even with 31's I think it would come together nicely, Most lifted trucks around where I am like f250's etc lift there trucks but don't run really big tires either.. so it's kind of the same idea for me if I throw a bl on my truck with 31's. I think it would look good. Plus the tires look bigger on the truck in person than in the pics..

idk man. its your truck though. do what you think looks better to YOU. i think if you lifted the front some and added an AAL or shackle it would look just as good as it would if you were to do a body lift.

i like the look of the grill the way it is. it doesnt look to flashy but theres just enough chrome there to make it stand out a little. i think you should throw on some nightshade to those tails.

Nah your right I hate that grille lol It looks great sometimes and others I just hate looking at it it's a weird thing to explain, I want the black honeycomb style one, but dunno if I'm going to pick one up or not. Yeah I thought about night shading the tails, I need to read up on how to do that, but yeah AAL or shackles would be nice too, but I think i'm gonna go with the body lift. Thanks for the comments guys

the only thing you havo think about the honeycomb grill is it does not not a xlt hood very well so you would have to replace both

What was that man? Really? I thought it fit the xlts and wen't with the hood.. http://www.rallyeauto.com/images/Truck/14172.JPG looks like it would fit fine.. even though that is a different hood in that picture.. I like my grill I guess but I like that style better.

the edges and 4x4 run a power dome hood that covers the gap the xlt hood produces with the honeycomb deal

here is my example

True I see what you mean, so I would have a gap there if I ran that grille correct? I want a power dome hood, I love those they look so good.

i had a power dome hood on my truck for a little while and honestly they look sick but mine was in poor shape but looking at my truck now im considering putting it back on haha... but the power dome hood feels like 10-15 pounds heavier... it was a pita to mount and take off by my self compared to my origanal hood, just thought i would let you know in case weight was an issue for you... also if you leave your existing grill it will hit just barely on the top center of your grill, its kinda noticeable when closed but not really unless your looking for it, the only reason i noticed is i painted my grill black and saw a little chip. which lead me to investigate...

i like the truck looks sick and since you have coils i would go with a suspension lift i want one but i would be better off sas for the price of a decent suspension lift for my truck...
