    The additions look nice. And you posted plenty of pics. That's awesome. I've toyed with the idea of tow mirrors myself, but I'm not sure yet. Did you install them yourself?

    Mirrors are easy to change, and i will be getting them on my truck when i can find a good reliable set to purchase, i want the OEM for strength and i know they will be made right, but i can't justify the price. I will be getting them painted to match so they will end up being a $800 set of mirrors.

    To replace the mirrors just pop off the cover on right on the door, take out the insulation foam, unplug the mirror, and then take the 3 nuts off the studs of the mirror, and then put the new mirror on, and reverse the directions. IF the cable connection isn't behind the foam, then you may need to take your door interior panel off and peel back the plastic moisture guard, it will be in there somewhere.

    The upgrades really changed the look of the truck. You still thinking of possibly putting wheel spacers?

    Definitely looking sweet. I'll let you slide on the truck being dirty because the wheels are nice and shiny, and the truck only looks dirty in one of the pics.

    I like the debadged look on your truck too!

    I noticed you have a front plate and the bull bar. Can you take a shot from the front so I can get a better look? This was an idea I was toying with but decided not to because of my front plate. Which manuf. did you go with for this accessory?

    So wait ... someone who likes getting muddy on ATV's just complained a truck was dirty in one pic ... and let him slide on the others? It's his truck! If you don't like it, offer to wash it for him!!!

    Maybe I'll take pics of my truck when dirty from now, onward, just to see your reaction. LOL

    I only said it because ChevyBoy2003 said in his original post "(trucks alittle dirty)". It was hardly dirty. Maybe he's crazy like me when it comes to dirt on the truck :neutral:

    Getting your truck dirty is too much work...to much area...lol

    Overall I think mud looks good on any truck with all-terrain or knobby tires. If I ever put some on the lawn ornament she may see mud on occasion.

    i dont mind my truck being dirty but i figured if i was taking pics of it,you guys might wanna see it clean!...not sure on the brand of the bull bar,i picked it up on craigslist for 100 bucks,but i gotta admit its very sturdy and looks well built.Ill get a good pic of the front when it stops raining.These towing mirrors i got from 1AAUTO are very well built,the mirror doesnt bounce or anything and i paid 230.00 shipped(FOR THE PAIR) to my house for them.Also they are very easy to change,i had to remove the door panel to get to the connection in my truck...but my bros 02 chevy you just had to remove the cover,pull the foam and theres the connection.

    MTM-im not sure what im going to do...what do you think?...the back wheels look like they stick out farther than the front but thats just me

    hey guys im back with another upgrade...i got a AFE CAI for the truck now...i got it off craigslist for 100 bucks...only been used for about a year,and the guy cleaned it before i got it.I love the noise it makes under the hood now.Believe it or not it actually made the exhaust alittle bit louder when you get on it.
