    My truck is two tone, dark grey on top tan on bottom. I want some ideas what I should do next. I was tossing some ideas around, but not quite sure what to do. I thought about an 06 front end conversion or a train horn just not sure. Sorry for being inactive lately, my computer broke so all I have is my phone for now.

    If you wouldn't mind me asking where you got your HIDs? I had a set of halos and didn't like them. Then peeled one off on a mailbox backing up into a driveway.....oops. But I wanted to go hid, but couldn't differ the good from cheap wanna he's.

    Hi again Curtis, I use the Phillips HIDs. Now they are a little pricey but I think they are worth it. You can get the kit for 150 - 200 on the Phillips site but I had to call to get the discount. If you can't swing that look on V-Leds.com they have kits for around 59.00 , My girlfriends car has those and they work great but make sure you get the relay also for them. My Headlights are Elegant by TYC and I have to say after 4 sets of headlights including Spyder CCFL Halos that cost 360.00 I found that just about all the after market headlights are terrible quality and shake when you are driving but these TYCs are at least as good of quality as the OEM headlights and they were only 112.00 and the HIDs work perfect in them and I don't blind people any more. LOL!!!!

    Sit down and make yourself a "wish list". After you have completed the list, try to prioritize what mods you want to do 1st to last and keep in mind your budget. If you're on a tight budget, you may want to complete the least expensive ones first. Good luck!

    How much do you think it would cost to do that? If I did that should I get black tail lights, black wheels, black 3rd brake light. I just need some ideas I will have around $400 in the next couple and I couldn't think if anything to do.

    Its probably at least $1000 even at Maaco. You can save yourself alot of money if you do all the pre prep work yourself. Fill and sand any dings, sand and water sanding will save alot in the long run.

    Yeah, I figured. I think I might keep it two to be more original anyways. I can get some new wheels for around $400-500. What kinda wheels should I go with? One of my friends said I should get some black mickey thompson classic II wheels, but I'm not sure.

    There are tons of wheels out there. Try looking on TIRERACK.COM, Discounttire.com or ebay. That is a good plce to start or I think we also have a on-site sponsor clled RIMZ that has great deals on wheel tire packages.
