project anit-grandpaw the 2wd daily **pic heavy**

Well guys here is my truck.. All stock as of now.. My goal is to un-grandpaw it.. I think it shows its age... I want to hear what you guys think would help... My plans over the next few months are:
outside:

Billet grill
clear headlights and corners
6k H.I.D's
Led third, and tails
15% tint
LEveling kit if i could find one for a 2wd
white plasti-dip the inside of the current grill till I go billet
LED cab lights?

Inside:

Led gauges for boost, trans temp, and egt
Maybe Led my cluster and heat/air controls
I want to go rubber floor from LMC truck..
Get rid of the blue.. wont happen tho..

whatcha think?

-Level the truck out by lifting front or lower rear
-Tint window
-Loose nerf bars that you trip over to get in the truck
-GET RID OF the black wheel look(black wheels do not go on 2 tone trucks)

It is a sharp looking 95

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!

The things i did do were strip the wheels of the black, got rid of the steps ! the chrome wheels are the current.

I agree with getting rid of the black wheels and the nerf bars. I think a little height and beefier rubber and you're good to go. I also agree with the crystal headlights and billet grill.

Thanks guys! It is a 95' It even had the original floor mats in it!
225xxx on the clock too! runs good

Are there any leveling kits for the front that are better then others? I believe in waiting to be able to afford quality..

Also what year ford wheels will fit these trucks?
