What should I do

Ok I am happy with the performance of my truck right now. But it is needing change in some fashion. Give me ideas on what to do that will cost 500 or less.

Replace that 6637 with an AFE clamp on. 90 bux

Shim the regualtor...FREE

A regulated return would be nice but would kill the budget.

I know all this. But I am going for looks. Besides custom pinstriping and vinyl I added about 6 years ago. The outside of my truck is completely stock. Well besides tires but who keeps stock tires.

Minus the tool box this is what my truck looks like.

I would have to go with clear lights. Because if I went smoked then I would want everything smoked. I have yet to find a grill I like. In Michigan grill inserts don't last one winter with the snowplows.

Wife is short need running boards or tube steps. Even with the stock hieght she still needs to use the running boards.

I may make a run to the junkyard tomorrow maybe they have some of the stock tube steps.

I am thinking of removing the vinyl graphics on the side. But I am worried about the paint getting damaged. Plus I would have to buff for a while to remove the sticker marks.

Oh and my emblems have been chromed already too. I did that in 30 minutes with acetone.
