So I did another GIMP project on my truck before it goes into the body shop Oct. 10th... what does everyone think? Yes or no?? Keep in mind I'm dropping it 2 inches and it has a Roll pan now.

I like it. Did you do that with a photo edit program? If so, can you superimpose some twins on my truck?

It looks good, but I like it the way it was before.

I think you're going backwards, but I know what it's like to get bored and want to change everything up.
I agree! I love the way your truck is now, I dont know why you'd want to change it up that much.

i like the bumper keep the grille like it is not back to stock i think
So keep the all black one I have? You don't think it looks cheap?

Yes, I did it with GIMP while my daughter was taking a bath.. And I guess I'm kind of confused on how you would want twins imposed on your truck.... you mean from a far away shot that would get the truck and twins? If so, I could probably do that.

Guy from the forum came from Long Island and took it off my hands... he gave me a roll pan, bigchevyhitch, stock front bumper, and like 600.00 cash

Yeah.... I'm dropping it because I want to take it to the track and I got a Kryptonite front end and new HD drive shaft... so if I"m dropping it I figure why not go with a more "clean" look and color match... but then again maybe the two tone will look good too??

Just trying to make it look "clean". For some reason I look at my truck and think it looks cheap and dirty.. I dunno....maybe it is boredom...

i really like ss bumpers.. i think it will look good :drink
but personally eric i think it will look a little funny with your truck... being a more off road looking truck then street. cause you have the big fenders and bed liner on the sides :cool:

I'm waiting to get pricing back to decide if I want to do it or not. I was just trying to be a bit different, going with the lifted matched bed liner look with the SS look as well. And depending on what my truck runs at the track, who knows, I might be going back to 33's and stock flares as well!

IMO i would do the SS bumper, Color Matched Flares (Or sell me the flares if you go back to stock ones), and keep your BFXenon Grille. On your truck i wouldnt color match the mirror's, but i would do the Handles.
Would color matching the bed liner still cause chips in the new paint, or does the bed liner underneith still protect it?

What size blocks do you have in the pic's in the suspension? What size are you going to than?
