    Its been awhile since Ive posted updates on my truck, so here they are!

    How the truck sat before new wheels/tires, Grille, lights, and eyelids.

    How it sits now. Tinted tail lights, new grille, hella 500's behind grille, eye lids, and new wheels/tires.

    Ive got a couple things in mind for the grille, havent decided which i want to do yet.. Ill either buy another shell, and paint it black to match the eye lids. Or paint the grille itself black. Im also going to put my horns back on once i get some longer bolts. If I keep the chrome grille, ill paint them black. Another thing you cant really see. I took the sliders off, and repainted them with bedliner. they where chiped and rusted.

    Trauma , truck looks good , I for one like the hint of chrome / stainless / non - black in the wheels , I think it balances out the look .

    well get back on it!! LOL

    I think color matching the eyelids would make a huge difference. Throws the whole look of the front end off as is it now.

    Paint ur bumper valence black too or apply black vinyl and IMO that'll make it look smoother. I like it so far.

    Man I love the lights behind the grill. Is this hard to do? I need a new grill too. Just have stock right now.

    Its set to about 4 1/2" lift.
    Wheels/tires I sold.
    as for the lights, its not too bad, I made my own light bar, but it only took a half hour to install it.
