    Mudder tires on some wheels bought from a boneyard - for those "I gotta get her dirty" urges.

    I would like to lift the truck, but do you think it would look stupid with the stock rims and tires?

    maybe leveling kit or 2" lift would look good!

    No man, you should for sure lift it. Just do a simple 2.5" coil spacer lift for the front and 3" AAL in the rear. Takes care of everything and it will look SICK!!! Just my $.02.

    I think you should get a white grille surround. That would make the front end look much better.

    Otherwise...lift it! Or do a nice CBE...yea CBE FTW! :D

    Hit up a junk yard and find an unscathed TRD Sport grille in white to put on yours.

    You throw it in the bank until you see something that makes you say "I MUST HAVE THAT". Then spend it!

    I know, but do some research at least, and find something that your absolutely have to have to make your truck YOUR truck! Don't do anything everyone else tells you. Get some ideas from it but don't do what the majority wants to YOUR truck. There is a lot you can do with 1K so just pick something and run with it!

    get a nicer stereo.. or blow most of it on coil overs and an AAL for the rear, spacers are junk imo.
    but most important, enjoy the truck :)
