tint, wheels & tires (need to figure out if you're going the lowrider route or the lifted route)... and a clay bar & wax and it will look like a whole new truck.

If you smoke, add some vent visors. Tint the windows. Chrome on red can look good, but it's usually too blingy. A nice polished alloy would look better. (if you live in a trailer park I retract that statement y'all love shiny objects).

I'd finish color matching the front lower valence, and for gods sake man wax that damn truck once in a while.

I would tell you to remove the red "sport" first and foremost, but by now you have no choice but to leave it on because underneath that decal is pretty fresh red paint that is 5 shades darker than what you have now.

Most importantly go to a cheap dollar store and buy ten cans of black spray paint and do your frame and suspension. It's a ten dollar resto-mod that makes your truck look new. The FIRST thing I see when I look at a brand new truck is that shiny black frame in the fender wells.

first off it needs a good clay bar and wax. then id tint the windows, drop it 5/7, new wheels/ tires, and do something with the stock exhaust.

I'd probably look for a fiberglass tonneau cover that matches the colour of the truck.

I think it improves the look tenfolds!

well, its your truck, do what makes you happy. IMO a 2wd truck should get dropped and a 4wd needs to get lifted
