    Looks; I would start with Window vents, Level the truck (it don’t look like it in this pic- I could be wrong), chrome handles, chrome gill insert, chrome tow hooks, chrome bow tie.
    I’m not a chrome guy but think it will look good with that silver.

    Engine; cold air intake or/and programmer
    Take a look at some different truck pictures here. It will help you with ideas.

    Definitely change the bowtie by going billet, chrome, or painted/powder-coated. That's a quick and easy mod and it can cost as much or as little as you want it to.

    I don't know that I'd go chrome with silver; they have a way of blending in bright light. If you're not a chrome guy then all the things Curky siad to chrome -- consider black.

    De-molding it will also improve its looks a lot.

    Probably the biggest change you could do to your truck since it's Silver would be to two tone it, say something down low on the rockers or on the top half.
    I've been thinking about something like this for my truck for a few months I just havent decided on a color scheme or design yet.
    Chrome does blend into the silver almost to well, I had chrome door handles and took them off because of this issue.
    The chrome billet grill isnt to bad but I painted my bow tie logo's a stailess steel color which is a little darker than silver and I left the black trim around the outside.
    Another trick to change up your truck is to paint the inside of your wheels, a satin black or maybe charcoal, those colors stand out but are subtle.

    Also, please don't post basically the same thread in multiple sub-forums. :)

    General advice though, don't ask other people what to do to your truck. Look at other trucks you like the looks of for ideas, and if you find some mod you do want to do, ask how to do it, if you don't know how, or it's not obvious. If you ask other people what you should do to your truck though, they're mostly just going to tell you what they would do to their own trucks, and it may or may not be what you want to do to yours.

    Whatever you do, please stay away from the ugly stick-on fake hood scoops, fender vents, and other junk like that. It's tacky. :)

    This times two. It's your truck, so make it YOUR truck.

    This times four ... except that you might like tacky and its your truck so make it YOUR tacky truck if tacky is your thing.
