Default Critique my truck

Looked for an hour or so, and didn't find a thread like this, so I started one. All are invited to post their trucks in this thread if they like. If there is something like this, someone, pointe me to it.

Anyway, here's my 2012 XLT. Current mods are in my sig.
I'm going to go with a 2" spacer in the front, to replace the 1" that's already there, and am kicking around sticking some Ion Alloy 174's on it. I feel the truck already has way too kuch chrome on it, hence the black wheels.Those tires are already 33", so can't decide whether to go larger or not.
In the photos, the rear is raised by the airbags 1", so the rear can sit lower as is.

Just for s@%^* and giggles, I included a photo of my little Ranger.

Looks good!
Might want to paint the door and tailgate insets body color. Id do the black plastic on the front bumper too. Debadging makes for a cleaner look.

I'd take the FX appearance badges off and paint the inserts to match the truck. Looks funky cause it's a different shade of red.

But I could suggest 1,000 things you could add, but that'd also cost a lot of money Painting door and tailgate handles and mirror caps would look good. Black/dark FX heads and tails too. That'd be a good start.

It looks good though.

I would PTM the grill surround and that would tone down the front end.
