yeah, kinda ran out of truck cash at the moment. The plan is to get a whole new headlight assembly, in black. Then also a roll pan. No drop though.

I think it just needs a drop and maybe the same rims but in 17". Upgrade the headlamp to match the lense on the corner light. I'm one of the weird ones who like having color on a truck! Keep the amber!



Is that dash black? What was your process on turning it black?
