Whats next? need opinions

Ok guys i have done whats in my sig. What should i do next?

Im up for looks as well as performance.
My dilemma with adding more HP is my tranny, basically anything i add at this point will put me over the limit and id need a new tranny. I feel like im at the point were if i get a turbo, id need injectors, and then a custom tune, and then with that power i would need a new tranny, what do you guys think?

Other dilemma, i would love a lift, but i just got tires about 3 months ago, and if i lift i need to step up the tires.

What do you guys think? Maybe some Tint? Train horns?

What do you guys think would make my truck look meaner?

heres a pic. let me know if i should throw somemore up

im going to have to add this... if your soo concerned about the trans def get that edge juice out of there... it has no trans tuning at all... get a set of regular analog gauges and a custom tuned chip... for your trans i would do a valve body and ugraded torque converter as well as a larger trans cooler...

What raul said is a good idea. Sell the edge and get a flip switch.

Ive been throwing the idea of that TW chip around. I know if i do anything else for performance the edge's gotta go. I just gotta pic where im gonna spend the cash, i want a lift but its just not gonna happen. how much do you think i could resell my tires for?

anyone know if i can fit a 3 guage pillar with the edge mount still there?

sell the edge.
For looks do the 05+ front end.
Performance sell the edge buy a custom tunned chip, valve body, 6.0 cooler.

you generally get less than half what you paid for them if you try and sell them.... no matter what you decided if you dont decide on going with a custom tuned chip take that edge juice off of it... it will eventually blow your trans and that will be more expensive... you need something that properly tunes your transmission...

you would have to move the edge to fit gauges.
