I'm jealous! I have the same truck without the hood, stripes, and 24's!
I've been so busy trying to install go-fast goodies that I've not thought about exterior mods. It's definately on my list now! Thanks alot Pal! You probably just costed me a lot of money!!! LOL

First of all AWESOME truck and mods! You gotta love that hood w/stripes and wheel combination... really makes it stand out. Great job!

I know you mentioned you had the grill painted but I have to ask... Are the stripes on the hood painted also?

The reason I'm asking is I've seen stick on ones that look very similar.
They look great either way!

That looks great!!!

I'm usually a fan a lift not lower, but I think everyone hit the nail on the head here, a little drop would just add to the effect on your truck.

I think it looks great just as it is, no lowering required....but that's only my opinion.

Looks really nice. I vote to lower the rear just enough to level the truck, then if you think you might be hauling a lot of heavy stuff or pulling a trailer, intstall air bags on the rear so you can adjust to the load.

This truck rides so good from the factory that the 24's didn't change it that much. It did change it, but it still rides better than any other truck I have had. And unfortunatley for my wallet, I have had many to compare it to. They are 24x10. I don't know the offset. I just went to a wheel shop and said "what do you have in a 24 that will fit my truck?"

And by they way, Thank you for your service to our great country!
