    1. I want to put a lift but dont know how tall though
    2. put a winch
    3. change my front bumper
    4. bigger tires but could i keep my old rims.
    5. want better shocks and suspensions
    any ideas...
    I drive a lot on the highway and city on weekends, dont go off road, so i just limited my ideas. i dont know why i want a winch for but it would be nice to have one just in case.

    Check out some of the mebers trucks in their gallery, and see what height you like, then go from there.

    So you don't go offroad and you want all that stuff? Seems like a waste to me. Maybe I misread the post, sorry if I did

    I agree it is his truck, but maybe some personal cosmetic surgery might give a better result...

    What the hay?! A man's truck is his steed. His only true love that will never leave him for another... well, whatever;). Enjoy your truck. Think of it this way, if you spend this money on your girlfriend or wife, you will have nothing to show for it. So do it up!!

    If you can afford it then go for it, but you have to realize your gas mileage will suffer as a result.

    I'm like you. I want to lift my truck, get big tires and nicer wheels (minus the winch and bumper) and I don't off-roading, but I want to make my truck look mean. I don't do it because I can't afford it. If you can afford it, do it.
