    First of all, I'd wash it.....jk

    Actually, there are some things that you could do for free that might give it a different or cleaner look (if you like that); such as removing the side molding and badges.

    And Welcome to the Club!!

    Well, if you looking to spend a little money, how about accessories like: tonneau cover, bed rails caps, N-Fab nerf bars?

    I have a tonneau cover, and i just ordered some hid headlights, i also just put new 265 goodyear wrangler tds on it and was wondering if a rough country leveling kit would look good with 265s. If anyone had a any pics of their truck with a leveling kit and 265s that would be great to see them. Thanks Dan

    I would definitely consider the leveling kit Dan. That alone makes any truck look better.

    De-badging & de-molding are simple mods to make your truck stand out. You can also do the shaved antenna mod, its a pretty inexpensive mod as well.

    X2 with the de-badging and molding. I'd go with a ReadyLift kit over the RoughCountry. I don't think I would go with the N-Fab bars on a non-lifted or just a leveling lift because they hang down with the second hoop so they look close to the ground JMO. Try a standard step bar like Westins.

    you know as for changing the wheels, I myself do not want to spend a lot of money. If you're patient you can find some good deals on craigslist with people who upgrade their wheels and list their 'old' ones for dirt cheap. Often times, they even have decent rubber wrapped around them. Personally, on my 04 Tahoe I am looking for some new tahoe 20's. I'm guessing they would fit? Also, I see people all the time selling stock escalade, denali wheels etc and they add a super nice OEM touch.
