Welcome to the forum. Let's see some pics of what we are working with. Tint is cheap and easy, but it's not really an "eye catcher" wheels & tires would probably be one of the easiest eye catching mods.

Tint is always good ... Ive been looking at aftermarket grills and nothing looks good enough for me ... So yesterday i removed my stock grill to get measurement and make my own ... Its going to be made from 1/8 inch stainless diamond plate with something cut out in the middle i just havent figured out what yet .. Ill post pics of my progress soon .. And i wanna wait for rims because i need somebody work done before i go and throw some dubs on it ... does anyone know the biggest size you can put on a 4x4 without them rubbing ????

a black billet grille would look good on there, as well as some blacked out headlights and corners, tint for sure. you can get 32" tires in there with a little crank on the t-bars. ALso you can repaint your grille with some krylon fusion.
