Well, I haven't done much but i've started doing a few mods on my truck. As many of you know i hate chrome so the first step for me is to get my truck as black as possible. I tinted the front windows to match the back 28% which is the limit here in SC. The guy i took it to did a great job. it took him about 30 minutes and looks great. He charged $30 per window. He doesn't take checks or plastic, so its cash only and he doesn't charge tax so it cost me $60 even to get the front two windows done.
I always hated the chrome trim around my grille. Fortunately there is a guy at my work that has my exact truck but it's the sport model, so it has the color matched grille trim, and he has wanted chrome ever since he bought it back in 05. So we met out in the parking lot during lunch and swapped grill's so now we're both happy. I was worried that since his truck was 2 years older than mine the paint might be slightly faded but it looks great, can't tell any difference and it was scratch and ding free.
My next step will most likely be a 3" lift. i've been staring at it online for over a week now i'm just afraid of any unwanted side affects i might get from lifting it. So as soon as i get up the guts i will buy the lift, hopefully in the next month... 2 months max.
I would like some input on my next asthetic mod though. I am thinking about having my rims powdercoated gun metal grey. Then i started thinking that it would look nice if all my badging matched. I was thinking about taking off all the chrome badging and having them powedercoated the same color as the wheels so that they would match. Basically my truck would be all black and grey (although i also like black and red, so i'm halfway considering that)
Anyway, what do you guys think about gunmetal grey powdercoating on all my chrome as well as the wheels? how bout some feedback, or if you have your own ideas feel free to share, i'm open to suggestions
I know its not much but one step at a time.....
