    Default anyone else with the painted front end?

    I was just wondering if anyone had a new body style chevy with the black front end? im not sure exactly what it is called. Also i was wondering if i should do chrome accessories such chrome handles and mirror backs and chrome wheels. my near future plans are to do a leveling kit and then do a rancho 4 inch suspension lift with 35s and 20s or 18s. tell me what yall think about it.

    You cant have too much chrome. So go for it. The lift kit would look great too. As for your wheels and tires, 35's with 18's would look better than 35's with 20's because the extra sidewall you get with the 18 inch wheels would look better because a little more sidewall gives a truck a more aggressive look.

    Nice deal.. Im not really a fan of 20s. But the way the stock chevies look i would consider those.. BUt im happy with my 17s now.. Since if i put 20s on it and dont fix the MN rust then im just polishing a turd.. BUt i dont want to repair the rust since i tend to pick up a few dents from time to time when i go fishing and hunting...
