Need opions

Okay so I'm trying really hard to NOT buy a new platinum. I was given a hell of a hard to pass up deal, but I don't want to get back into a truck payment. So, I'm contemplation doing a a full 05 conversion on my truck. Here's how it looks now:



Here it is with the 05 front end


Stick with where I'm at or go with the 05 grill and bumper?

Also, I realize that I misspelled "opinion"

Nah man, I got nothing against you. Just fun giving you a hard time

The payment on the platinum they're offering is only $583/month!!!

Anyway, yeah, I'm considering the 05 front end too. I can probably get it all done for less than a grand.

Yeah, I wasn't planning on the flames, but it was easier to just leave them in

It's just the way the picture looks, the sun washed it out. I'm sure I can go OEM for about $1,200

That's what I was talking about with a buddy earlier, who is currently texting me trying to get me to buy the platinum

I like the 6.7 trucks, I like the interior on the 13s, BUT I don't know if I want to deal with the emissions stuff. Really that is what's kinda stopping me. I've driven a couple 6.7s and I like how they drive, but there's just something about a tuned truck that's missing there.
