I am tired of my trucks look, help me out....

After a while I get bored with things way to easily. I just polished the rear section of my exhaust, and had the whole front windsheild tinted 45% (yes it looks awesome and still very visable), but now that is old to me and need something else to spice it up. 08 tail lights will be here tueday and will have them smoked and put on as well as the mirror lights but there needs to be more.

So here is my question to you fellas.....

Would you paint the outer shell the same color as truck and leave the center chrome (like the H-D trucks) or would you leave it alone?

Black housing headlights or color matched blue headlights?

bullbar or no bullbar?

**The poll is set up as multiple choice so you can choose the 3 out of 6 questions I have provided. Thanks for voting. This is the best way to get some numbers on the thoughts I have juggling in my brain!


Pic of my truck now...




Pics of what grille would look with outer shell painted blue and center still chrome...

[QUOTE=tcgordy;2132644]After a while I get bored with things way to easily.

Dude, I have the solution. Get in that fabulous looking PSD & drive it to Colorado. There, I will meet you with mine. I hand you my keys & you hand me yours. You willl have a new project truck & I will be driving that beautiful blue truck, singing all the way, without a bored bone in my body!!
Deal?

Very sweet looking ride there sir. Honestly, I wouldn't change a thing, just get another hobby.

That's exactly what I"m saying ^^^^^^
I'm about to do a write-up on color matching headlights, so you might do that?? (And I
haven't found a write-up on it yet and have been searching for a while)

If anything, lose the bullbar. I've never been a fan of those.
