Tinting is fairly cheap and adds a lot to the look. It would be easier to offer suggestions if you posted some pics of your truck though...

DAY LIGHTS
its a second set of parking lights that are instaled into your head lights that u cant get in trouble for have what ever color bulb u like in them(makes your head light light up a different color when park lights are on)

materials needed: old small pig tails, colored bulb of your choice, and small gauge wire(you prob have all of this laying around in your "extra parts" box)
tools needed: case of corona(or drink of choice), dremmel, wire stripes, and a self pat on the back for when your done.

start of by removing your head light from the vehicle. then next to but not too close to where the bulb goes about a inch away drill a small hole that the pig tail can lock in to(dont drill the hole too big, start small). then mesure the lenth of wire need to connect the pig tail to your parking light, connect the wire to the pig tail and splice it to the parking lights, insirt the small bulb in to the pig tail and lock the pig tail in to the hole u drilled in to the head light. reinstall the head light. test your new DAY LIGHTS. wow it works, now u can use the pat on the back
its a simple and cheep diy im not responsible for your mess up if needed i can do a diy with pix

also to clear up all the dull lenes i suggest using maguiars PLASTX. it works wonders i use it on all my cars and trucks

If it is hosted online right click and copy the image location, then click the icon that looks like a mountain and paste the link there.

k here we go with the simples DAY LITE mod

as i said u need simple tools, small bulb, and pig tail


pull your head light out and drill/dremmel a hole same size as the pig tail


plug light bulb of what ever color u want i used green as a tempory just to show yall what it looks like i trimmed 2 of the bulb locker soo it would minimize the cutting on the head light housing you also have to dremmel slots for the lock tabs on the pig tail to fit into the head light soo when u twist it holds it in the head light


after u lock the pig tail in and its secure, put your headlight back on your vehicle, figure out how you want to run them either to your running light or to a toggle switch(your choice) after turn them on and be the envy of all your friends.

here is what mine look like with the green bulb(surprisingly its a deeper green than i thought it would b, every one knows that nite pics never show the true quality of the light soo i hope yall like the simple write up its my first sry if it was a lil confusing.


heres a car that was done with blue bulbs




and finaly im not responsable for any of your mess ups
