    Welcome to the club, I personally like the chrome contrast on the black but everyone is different. I think you should make it or keep it the way you like it, that's what is important. Anyway, good to have you and nice looking truck thanks for the pictures.

    Am I the only one who thinks your truck looks great as it is? I personally would only switch to a smaller wheel and more aggressive tire. Everything else would suffice!

    Welcome to the Club!!!

    I agree that it's preference. You will get as many different opinions as there are members here, so to try and find a consensus is rather difficult. I'd continue down the path you are going with looking at others' pics, finding a truck that you most like, and then working toward that vision.

    Good luck!
