i have looked into painting the front of my truck to match but the rest of my trucks paint is starting to fade. and the bed is a ranger bed and the guy who painted it just painted right over the original teal. so its starting to peal. and i have alot of scratches and dents. more dents in the front than the back and more scratches in the back than the front. and i dont like the prep work lol

well paint the underside up if it needs it, just power wash it, get some rust bonding primer spray and black paint. It will make it look better and protect the underside, you could even put bed liner on the underside too but if you do that dont put it close to the exhaust.

You could also rig up a full size spare tire carrier in case you blow a tire offroad.

or add fender flares.

Ok a few suggestions that wont kill your bank! Also before you spend to much on major upgrades get a good collection of tools together! And also do research on forums look at what other people are doing. Check Craigslist for deals.

HID conversion headlights
http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/DD...ast-35W-or-55W

LED interior lights such as dash
http://www.superbrightleds.com/

Hella 500 lights from Walmart or local auto-parts store
http://www.amazon.com/Hella-005750952-Halogen-Driving-Cubed/dp/B001TWD5KU
This is a guide to bulb types! For interior and such
http://www.sylvania.com/ConsumerProd...RG-Results.htm

Rock lights just need to be any $20 set of lights from your local auto parts store wire them up to a switch and simple

Smoke your turn signals and tailights looks cool but will probable get you pulled over if you go to dark!
