Default Update on mods

Just thought I'd share some before and after pics. So far mods are hood, headlights, foglights, grill, intake, exhaust, programmer, tint, alarm, rhino liner, tailgate lock, and tailgate light bar. Folding tonneau is on its way and rims are still a far dream. Then I can finally start on the interior! Any thoughts, comments, and suggestions are welcome. As anyone modding a truck knows, this is still a work in progress....

Excellent mods, the truck looks great! What percent tint do you have? I'm also getting started on my interior. I just replaced my front door speakers, and saving up for the back two. If you're looking for suggestions, a 2" leveling kit would look great on your truck!

I tinted the fronts only at 20% to match the factory tint as close as possible on the backs. I have thought about the leveling kit and like it but it leads to a vicious cycle of new rims and tires to fill out the wells and of course I'll need nerf bars at that point too. Its getting to the point that Im worried where I drive and park. With all the cash, time, and effort I still need it as a daily driver and insurance wont cover damaged mods if some idiot cant dodge me.

That 20% matches pretty well, I like it. I know the feeling, you put all of your time and money into your prized possession and some idiot ruins it all, it's a scary thought, and for some, a reality.

Looks amazing. I do love that Suncoast hood Which headlights did you go with? they look like the Recon ones but I'm not sure. Have you thought about paint matching the mirrors rather than leaving them the OEM black plastic? I hear you about the parking, I park in the back 40 at most places and it pisses the gf off cuz she has to walk so far

The headlights are black projector headlights with LED halos. Separate hi and low bulbs are both Silverstars. Foglights are projectors with 4300K HIDs and LED halos. The theme of the truck is to black out as much as possible and stay clean. Painting the mirrors isnt a priority since they collect so many bugs, the black works for me. As for rims, Id eventually like the go with a satin black with accents like these http://www.tirerack.com/images/wheel...mfba_ci3_l.jpg
