    I want to do some apperance add-ons/mods with my truck, and I'm not a very imaginative person. Its speedway blue and I want to go with a blue/black scheme. When I get some spare time I'm going to do the BHLM (looks badass), debadge the tailgate and I've been contimplating the black wheel mod. Any ideas people want to throw out? oh and I don't have alot of cash :D thanks!

    You can do graphics relatively cheap from an auto accessory store. Window tint, in-channel vent visors(I bought mine on ebay for $40 for a DC,retail was $110).I added the A.R.E tonneau cover to mine for $800 painted & installed (from a local auto accessory dealer).

    forgot to add tonneu cover, got that in garage waiting to be installed. Truxedo low pro QT. Was looking at deflector and vent visors, never thought about looking at e-bay, kinda skeptical about it though.

    Just use reputable dealers. Someone with a good rating. I bought mine from an actual store on ebay. They had a great rating!

    I was burned long ago on ebay. It took me a long time to go back. But I have not had any problems with them now. I buy parts for my boat on ebay, fishing lures, etc.

    I like the blue Taco. That is the color I wanted originally. But I couldn't pass up the deal I got on mine, from the Credit Union. 6,000 miles on it & got it with my accessories(tonneau cover, & hitch),inc Tax,Tag, & fees for $23,000. The previous owners contract was in the glove box. They paid $29,000 for my truck new. Must have traded it or it repo'd. It was only 4 or 5 months old when I got it. I still like that blue, it is a sharp color.

    Think of this as a family vehicle & not a hunting truck.
    Are the seats in the front where you put your Mother in law while driving down the highway! LOL

    Well if you're not very imaginative, might I suggest for you to go ahead and sell your truck and buy this one it's got everything done to it already.
