    I know what you mean, I was fortunate enough to be able to have it almost paid off with a no interest loan from the parents. There is no way i would be able to drop thousands on a nice lift and other expensive mods, trying to get the cheap things out of the way until I'm out of college. Thanks for checking it out!

    Cool mods man sub'd! I'm a college student majoring in marketing too at UNLV. Black fender flares FTW! Mine's similar to yours except I got the double cab and a few more mods. Some cheap and easy ones are LEDGlow interior and replacing the dome and map lights with LEDs.

    Haha thanks man! I believe the lights that are already in there are just a bulb swap that directly replace the stock ones. And the interior glow comes in a kit for $32 if you're trying to do that. But it has its own wiring.

    Sweet that sounds pretty easy, where can I get the LED's for the map lights and dome lights?

    I got mine put in from a shop when I had some other stuff done. But I'm pretty sure you can just order them online for cheap or pick some up at an auto store.

    Well, havent been getting as many hours as i thought i would at work so i havent been able to afford any mods. I did take off the mud flaps, i think it looks a little taller without them.

    Also hit the flares and other plastic parts with Mothers Back to Black and they look great.

    Agreed! I think the painted fender flares are for street trucks. I like them and your build.

    Nice truck man! Looks sweet, i'm with you on the black fender flares. Once you storm-troop the truck out, it's like the main accent for the truck.

    Looks good though! Time for a lift and bigger tires!

    Grew the balls to do the BHLM as well, just got the headlights pulled apart today, should have them painted and finished in the next few days.
