    I say go for it. Would look better with the black trim on your truck. Your trucks looks great btw. When you gonna level/lift it?

    I haven't done it to mine yet but I like the looks of the BHLM. I do think it would look good on yours as well.

    I say go for it. It seems like you're already heading down the road of red/black with the painted wheels, tinted tails, black fender flares and black grille. I think the BHLM will look good.

    It would probably look good on your truck.

    But what a PITA to do.

    I'd just get a set of OEM tinted head lights.

    maybe a slight lift when its paid off, but as for the level, i kinda like the slight rake to it. especially since the rake disappears and looks level sometimes depending where i park.

Hard-wired Radar Det. Custom Projector fog lights, Anytime Fog Mod, HIDS, White LED accent lighting on a Single post double toggle swicht, so they light up wit my door/dome light, or always on, or never on. LED map and dome lights.
    Go for it, it will match up good with ur trim and tail lights, im thinking of doing mine soon, or either buy some from ebay, but dont do the headlight covers, i think those dont look as good, but that just my taste.

    eh yes and no. it was the longest i've ever had a car. sold her with 172K on the clock, bought her with 64K. lots of time and memories in that car. i dont miss her because a lot of things were starting to wear out (like brake lines and suspension bushings and other labor intensive things). i put a lot of time and money into the motor and various other things. sold her, bought another motorcycle sooooo i dont miss it because of that either haha.
