    I just bought this truck two days ago and haven't done anything to it yet, but hopefully I'll get a little done to it depending on what my fiancee says the budget will allow since we have to move soon and all. The guy before me put a 3" Trailmaster lift on it with Trailmaster SSV shocks in the rear and the 285/70r17 Bridgestone Dueller AT Revos. I'll post more pictures once I wash all the snow and salt residue off. The first bit I'll do will probably come from the "Cheap/Free Mods" thread, but I'm happy either way compared to what I drove before this :D

    I'd like to paint the wheels black and black out the headlights. If anyone is savvy with photoshop, could you make the wheels black so I could see what it would look like?

    Looks good. I would deffinatly paint the wheels and do the BHLM, it would look sick and is a cheap mod.

    I would prefer to have the wheels powdercoated, which from what I'm told will run about $300 and with a wedding sometime in the future (we haven't set a date yet because she graduates in March and we're gonna wait til she has a job) and us moving in together and all, we're saving every bit we can. Heck to get this I had to sell 2 of my bass guitars, my big ass bass amp, my old truck, my four wheeler and now that I have this I'm gonna sell my 95 Mazda Protege (45 mpg and not a hybrid haha). How hard is it to do the BHLM? I'm kinda nervous about taking the headlight apart :confused:

    Ya, it sucks when you have to make sacrafices, but a happy wife is a happy life ;). But you can always just rattle can them until you get the cash to powdercoat. Just food for thought. The BHLM mod from what I read isnt too hard. Just sounds intimidating. I have all the stuff I have just been procrastinating on it. There are a few nice DIY threads on here that walk you through. It seems pretty easy
