1st Graduation gift to myself... New shoes!

Thanks, UNBROKEN.. They look awesome on the truck! A drop, some bodywork, and a painted rear bumper should put it pretty close to done for now.

Since you guys have seen the truck, I've put different pinstripes on the truck, painted the mirror posts and a quick cleanup:






What do you guys think?

Thanks! The pinstripe underneath the new ones is painted on, and I havent had time to get them off, but I I'm afraid it would be a little too much white without them. I was also told that the fender badge had holes behind it, which is the only reason I left it on to start with. Am I wrong? Which fender badge are you talking about?

I think he may be talking about the V8 one that is close to the headlights. Good looking pickup though man.

Re: 1st Graduation gift to myself... New shoes!

Thanks! I think it looks pretty unique, and will look MUCH better after a drop. That $800 price tag on the drop kit is pretty daunting, especially when the truck still has a 15* HPOP and the stock piddly e99 injectors... I'm prolly going to just pull the block and go from there.

79-80 views and only a couple replies solidifies my thoughts on the love/hate thing, lol. Some folks love it, but plenty HATE it too...

Good looking truck I like what you did with the front end. pinstripe, and badges must be addressed imo. Otherwise good looking rig

Time for painted handles... I almost like the pin stripe now...

Something does need to be done with the badges...

No holes.

Keep the door handles black to contrast the wheels, less paint to wax also lol

I like it Mike, definitely with the pinstripe, but I am not a fan of one solid block of color. Its just enough to break it up and give some contrast to it. But I agree on dropping that fender badge

With the drop in the back it should have a real nice stance to it
