Should I do it? Ask here....

I've been wanting to start a thread where members can come to one place and ask if adding an Exterior mod would look good or go well with their truck.

If your like me you have bought stuff that you thought would go good only to find it looks out off place and now you have wasted the money.

I bought some white framed rigid lights that I thought would look good on the front of my white truck, after I installed it didn't look right and most agreed.

So using my example, post pics of parts that your thinking about adding and what truck you have and we'll try to say yes or no to help out.

I have a few that I want to ask about so to only have one thread for everyone lets try this out.

Here is the white led's vs the Black that I switched to, to me and most it looks better.

If I would have asked before I might have just bought the black to begin with.

So to start off , before I cut holes in my rear bumper , does anyone think the white would look good in my rear bumper.

Like this black truck has done to his.

I'll tap into the trailer plug reverse lights so they only come on in reverse.

Yes or no?

Next I have been hating how behind my front wheels look, the factory spacer on my dually is covered with rust. I plan to pull it and either get them powder coated black or just rattle can them black.

While I'm doing that I've been throwing around the idea of adding brake caliper covers, I've been thinking blue with silver writing.

Would the blue look good behind the wheel?

Yes or no?

Next, the front wheel well looks bare without mud flaps to me. Just seems like something is missing not that I have the mp steps on.

Debating on adding plain black mud flaps that will go with the plain black in the rear, or getting the Gatorback Chevy flaps.

Here is a pick of my truck now with nothing, and a pick of a truck with the gatorbacks that I like. I would get the matching front and rears.

Plain black or chevy bowtie?

Last question of the day.

Rear wheel well, I'm thinking of getting rino lined. It's plain white now.

Here is a pic I found of a lined dually, I think it looks better and add protection, I plan to do this anyways but asking in case there might be a reason not to do this.

Line rear wheel well, yes or no?

No on the blue. Do they make the covers in black with silver writing? I think that would look better.

Yes to line the rear wheel well or install a plastic one if Chevy makes one...

I liked the front pods white, but anyway yes white pods in the rear bumper for sure

Black mud flaps with white bow tie yes

Rhino line the rear wheel wells for sure. I like mine that way

No, nope, no way on the blue caliper covers, plain silver caliper looks good to me, I painted all 4 of mine silver
