    I just bought my dream truck and need some help deciding how to spice it up a bit. I'm want to give the truck a more aggressive look by putting new tires on. I like the bfg all terrain ko. Would adding these be enough or should I do a small lift on the truck to give it a slightly more aggressive stance.
    Also want to add a new air intake to give it some more power and efficiency any ideas?
    And where can I find a nice chrome exhaust tip
    Love the truck so far. Can't wait to get to the snow this season.

    1. lifting the truck is your opinion for looks just no spacers. What tire size have you decided on?
    2.The truck already has a cold air intake, so adding an aftermarket one is just for sound.
    3. Local exhaust shop?

    A air intake won't give you noticeable gains in either hp or mpg. I know some think that they do but most get it to sound cool. A 3 inch lift will do wonders for how the truck looks, it gives it a more agressive look.

    Edit: Oowen beat me to it
