Ye, but thats what i was saying. I dont want it to busy with the Platinum badge and the 4x4 sticker, i'll be able to make up my mind after a few days of seeing it i think.

The fact that the truck is white, makes the chrome hard to even see in the daytime, so it might not be to busy as it would look on a red/black truck.

Anybody else opinion is welcome - Take the 4x4 sticker off, or keep it?

Very nice. Thanks for the info. What do you get for mileage going 75-80mph?

With my setup and tuner I avg around 16.8. Not to bad for the size of the tires. With the tuner the truck is faster than stock even with the larger tires. But before the tires i was around 19mpg.

If you want to see what it will look like without the 4x4 stickers, look at the pics of my truck on my build thread.
