I've been going back and fourth on this latley and was wondering what you guys thought.

Should I get my wheels and brush guard powder coated?
If I did I would also get all the stock chrome painted.

maybe someone could also do a chop so I can get a better idea.

im not a fan of the brush guards but that is just my opinion.

if it was me, and i know it aint but here are a few suggestions.

brushguard off.... sell it
colormatch door handles and mirrors (black)
z71 flairs (white)
fog lights (factory)
debadge that sucker
tint the windows darker (if legal in your area)
add a cowl hood

get this done in your chop and let me know what u think. id like to see it.

if i was you id take the brush guard off just to see if you liike it better. i had some chrome tail lights and had them on for a few months. i decided to put the factory ones back on and i decided i like the factory tails better... :shrug: kinda the same principle

ok just got off the phone with a local paint shop. they said for 17" wheels they would charge about $300 each wheel. if thats the case I might just stick with the wheels being chrome.

I actually tried the ss mirrors and did not like them. (they looked great, but made things a lot more challenging) so I took them back to autozone the next day.

youve got a super nice truck and im not busting balls or nothing, just throwing out some shit you may/may not have thought of.

stand 20 feet away from your truck. turn around and look away, close your eyes. now turn around open your eyes and the first thing you see that u dont like should be where u start.
