Default new project... let me know what u think

Hey guys just bought a new toy with the taxes and wanted some input and some ideas from yall about what i should upgrade or improve to make it look and run better. Obviously the final decision is up to me but approval from peers is always a plus. Anyways it's a 96 1500 5.2, 150,000mi, bone stock except for cold air and headers, tranny has fresh rebuild with 9,000mi before warranty is up, has 7in. skyjacker lift(don't know anything about suspensions so i don't know if they used a kit or just spacers and shocks but the back is all block and no add a leaf which is the dumbest thing ever!) with 36in. cepek FC II(fronts are super smooth), not sure what rims are on it but i'm still trying to get used to them(kinda flashy for my style), exhaust is just straight pipe true duals, has cowl induction hood(no prep work done before paint so its peeling like crazy!),front bumper is not the right style for this truck since it's a sport so if anyone wants to trade for a sport one let me know and i don't care about the color, body has dents and rust at bottoms of doors but not bad for it's age. bed liner was a do it ur selfer and looks like crap, same can be said for the interior which is in shambles after a failed attempt to "customize" it so now i'm left with a saggy headliner, cracked dash w/ dried up 3M adhesive, HUD is in peices and doors are covered in some fabric from walmart that is the ugliest green ever(green on gray inside a white truck? wtf) the steering wheel is upside down for some reason and the steering itself is worn out, I think thats everything but who knows with this thing, other than all that it runs and drives great and all in all is a decent truck for what i paid for it(which is y i got it in the first place lol) let me know what ya think and throw me some ideas of what u would do or what i can do to improve on what i have. THANKS!!!!!

Ok, I would get rid of the Ch*vy pulling a Dodge pic....
But it is a nice truck. I can only imagine how big that mother is....you said a 7" lift on 36's?! Dear all mother of God....that is huge! Dig around it like a monkey in a tree and let us know if there is any advice or anything else you made need directions/opinions or advice on!

Nice looking truck, a lot you can do with that one, but I like hemiv8's idea, a brush guard and some extra lights. That one would even look good with the rollbar in the back!
