I gotta say man, your truck is definately in my top 10 fav trucks. i love a lifted single cab pickup, and your quite black theme is going very well.

If I was to recommend anything, I think you should either swap in a billet grille to your truck or swap your front end to a modern design. I think that making the front modern would be a significant improvement..

basically imagine if you updated it to like like this

with or without a billet grille.

I just think it'd make your front end look beefier. At the least, new headlights would be very nice.

That truck looks like a monster with those tires on a single cab.

personally i think you need more lift to run that size tire....too much tire, not enough lift....

other than that it looks good...

Pfft too much tire/not enough lift is much better than big tire/too much lift.

Cause rolling a truck sucks! And we all get in positions sometimes where the cab starts really leaning.
