    do what i did to my truck, paint the mirrors and bumpers red, get the matching door buckets and escalade handles.......i would love to see a twin HD of my truck.....for now if you want quick mods that will be good....take off the side black plastic moldings, take off the moldings, get a billet bowtie or paint yours red....theres endless mods, what exactly do you have in mind for your truck?

    well Right now I thinkim getting my windows tented, spray on bedliner, and im going to crank my torsion keys to level it out. How much would all that cost roughly?

    Welcome to the site. I'd get a level kit installed instead of cranking the torsion bars, trust me there is no upward travel left in the suspension if you crank the torsion bars. I had a set installed on mine with lifetime allignment out the door at 461 bucks. Not bad but I bought a crap load from them at the same time. Figure window tint costs about 75 bucks a pair out here. A spray in liner cots about 4 to 500 bucks out here as well.
    Hope that helped you.

    I would strip the side molding off to make it look cleaner, and I would possibly paint the factory flares red to match your truck. Great looking ride for a 16 year old by the way, welcome to the club...........AMY

    you can find a leveling kit for your truck for anywhere from 100 too 200 bucks. I would recommend rough country. is your truck 2wd or 4wd? also, fill out your signature with some info on your truck

    A nice cat-back exhaust system would be nice too. I would highly recommend magnaflow
