It's about doing what you want, not what's gonna make it stand out. If you keep an eye out and make the changes you want then it'll be your own and unique. Just look around and stickers, colors, wheels, mods, etc. that you like and when you like it and think it'll look good, slap it on. In the mean time start saving your money 'cause this shit adds up! haha

+1 for disturbedesv's comment about do what you want to make the truck more what you like.

One of the most visible changes is rims.

I wanted to do the same thing with my truck, but didn't want to spend a lot of money so I bought hot pink pinstripes. Only cost me $30 and I was able to put them on myself in about a half an hour. It was pretty easy, and makes my truck look fierce.

We have the same truck and I painted the Chrome grille black, and the Valance (trim below the chrome bumper) from gray to black as well as the rear bumper step. Small details but hey, its different.

If not HIDs, you can always buy white bulbs like silverstar or some models of eurolites (the ones with a year warranty type) and such, it improves the look of your lights a lot.

I read the other day that your dog ate most of your mod money but the 1st mods I did was I added a Tonno pro tri- fold tonneau cover$229,and a Lebra all weather truck bra $69 simple and not too expensive,I haven't seen another truck like mine anywhere.

Default Re: Paint, Mod, or Decals?

the first thing i did was exhaust and intake... when i first did it, it wasn't cosmetically noticeable, but then i had it done again and now i have 2 tips coming out the right side before the right rear tire...

The List is endless:
Tint
Exhaust
Head lights
Tail lights
wheels/tires
Paint certain things..
Etc...

If YOU think it looks sick, DO IT!! cuz your opinion is all that matter for your truck..

Vinyl is pretty cheap, great if your paint is still good as well, if you want to sell the truck later, you can pull them off and sell it, whereas a crazy paint might not be easy to sell.

Also, rims, suspension, and emblems are east to set you apart.
