Default Need some opinions on the future of my truck!

Want to give it that extra to make it look that much better and after seeing a for sale thread on here with a rim I fell in love with, I had Sonic04edge do a photoshop for me to see how they would look. Also want to get some paint work done since it will never see salt again! Sonic did this for me way back when and I just want to know what you guys think of it.

New Rims:


Future paint

i love the alcoas, but if you like the other rims, then i say go for it, as for the hood, i like it, leave the spear in the center of the hood body color, and ditch the bug guard

"your truck will never see salt again"? are you moving ? or did Canada become salt free?

Like the rims and paint. Paint would also flow better without the bug deflector

I have a 1991 Ranger XLT 4x4 that is my new Winter pig/offroader so the 05 will be stored in a heated garage for winters now.

i like the wheels chris, not sure if i like them better than the dsg's though. they might widen the stance and add to to the look though of the BS is different than stock. the hood and grill paints scheme would look good, but like STL said, would flow better without the bug shield.
