Latest pics...looking for opinions...

Most recently removed side moldings and updated badges, and got an Extang revolution bed cover...tension..no Velcro or snaps....trying to figure out what to do now..

Lift? 4" or 6" ?
Spacers for now?
Tires are too good still to replace...when they are going bad I'll think about wheel and tire set ups..18/20 35/37 ..

I know I need 08+ tailgate and bumper..
Also thinking of 08+ mirrors and maybe some front fogs..
Also would like to loose the 6" tip and bring my current 5" straight pipe out as duals..one on each side

...?

Since the rest of the truck is chrome, I'd find some chrome wheels for it... 16s are cheap. Hell, I traded a guy my stock rims for the set of 16x10s I have on now.

I think some black fender flares would really make the truck flow. Black headache rack would be sweet also!

I think it looks really good the way it is, just my opinion.

Too much chrome in the grill area for black wheels... pick a theme... blacked out or chrome, looks strange mixed. I personally prefer the blacked out trim look, as you can see with my trucks... and wheels can be chrome with black grill, but not the other way around, IMO. I'm also a fan of headache racks, and grill guards/heavy duty bumpers.

I didnt want to do the 05 bumper and still don't...I like it to be a little different...
Not a fan of chrome wheels on trucks usually unless it's a dually...
Har to tell in pics but the holes in the wheels are polished and with the chrome caps and chrome warn hubs I feel the wheels flow ok for now...
I do like the idea of a headache rack...not sure how it would work with bed cover...
I wouldn't do any type of flares without a lift or wider wheels...I like the look of the wheels out further than the truck...not too much but enough to look a lil tough...

It's currently stock 350 4" blocks in the rear and a 3" level in the front
Tires are 35" duratracs (315/75/16)

I think some road armor or ranch hand bumpers would look pretty sweet and maybe a 4 inch lift But it looks pretty sweet but I'm sure if your a truck guy it'll never be done
