Got some new goodies for myself as a Christmas present from me to me.

I installed a billet grill a couple of weeks ago. Got it off of eBay. It was a bit of a pain to install. Cutting out the stock black STX grill insert was probably the easiest part. I had to bend the ends of the top and bottom bars, and once it was in, I had to beat on it in a few places to get it to sit right.

My wheels finally showed up last week (ordered on 12/25) They are 20x9 +30mm offset Raceline 982 Raptor wheels with a machined finish. I had them put 305/50/20 Cooper HT Plus tires on. Love the way it turned out. New goodies-image-3187513856.jpg New goodies-image-4235055235.jpg New goodies-image-2164204174.jpg

Looking good I not big on the chrome grills on these trucks and the billet grill seems to work well on them.

Grill, and wheels look great... Id suggest adding PTM door handles, and that sucker would look even Sharper...

Honestly, with the black mirrors, black on the bumper, black on the wheels, and black bed cover, I like the look of the black handles. The truck also has black leather seat covers, and a mostly black interior. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I think the next thing I'm going to do is either oem HIDs or a new head unit (kenwood nav unit with maestro).

I would lower it a bit!

It looks nice but just needs the right stance.
