Looks are important but i'm planning on keeping this truck for a long time. I plow snow in the winter and pull a 24' boat in the summer. So I guess performance and long term reliability is important. I think she looks pretty good now. I'm thinking of adding some harley headlights at some point but that can wait.

Re: Gimme some ideas guys...

Yeah, my exhaust is stock with a Walker BTM and a 4" tip. I was thinking of an exhaust but the valve body is sparking my interest. I am thinking of PHP tunes too.
