My mom didn't pay for any of my truck and she didn't want me to take them off cause she can barley get in and out. She got over it though.

Good looking truck, whatever you do DONT tint your head lights, probably the most useless mod EVER. The point is to use those to see at night lol
I would also look into a tune and a CAI to go along with the exhaust, save your mom some money on gas

I'm thinking about taking off the running boards of my truck. I kinda need em, my parents need em to get in and out of my truck and I like the ability to use it. Although I am tall enough to get in without the use of running boards. Being 6'5 has its perks.

Looks good! I liked how you dipped the inner parts of the wheels the first time, looks unique. I too want to take off my running boards, but a few years ago i got squashed by a Tahoe and broke my pelvis in 4 spots. The boards make it easier for me to get in and out.

well guys I just pulled the trigger on a set of 35" nitto terrra grapplers and ford raptor rims for $800!! The tires have 90% tread left.
Not exactly the set up I wanted but I couldnt resist that price.
