    Well we need a few more details about this truck of yours.

    Supercrew or regular cab?
    4x4 or 2x4?
    V8 or V6, if V8 305 or 351?
    Long bed or short bed?
    Color?
    Interior?
    Any mods done already?

    well its a regular cab. A 2 by 4. its a 351 v8. It is red, not marroon RED. The interior is grey for the most part. Mods all I can think of is some oversize tires, no lift I dont feel like maintnence on increasing heighth. Got me a pioneer premier 730 cd player/stereo. Pioneer speakers. Need a sub but dont got that cash right now. Any advice is welcome wether it be getting engine stuff or anything down to dice for the mirror(which I already have). Thanks

    If you can't even afford a sub I don't know that you'll be able to afford anything we could suggest.

    well I can afford a sub its just that I would rather havve something else on my truck before I get the sub. Just gimme advice. I dont care if I cant afford it.
     
  10. Yeah like i said, put a 6" lift on it

    Anything besides a lift? I didnt really want a lift in the first place but any other advice is appreciated.
     
  12. Alright you got two choices. Drop it, put spokey ass 13" rims on it, a taneu with a big ass spoiler, and a roof covered in canvas, and basically make it look really gay. Or you can lift the shit out of it and be cool.

    well first something that always makes a car/truck look good is to shave all the emblems....personal opinion. Then tint the windows if you already havent. Shave the door handels. get some clear corner lights. paint the windshield wipers the same color as the truck. Just a couple of ideas, glad to help

    ....one more thing, you dont lift a 2wd truck, its pointless
     
  16. You COULD lift a 4x2. They make kits you know. Im just saying that making an american truck a euro low rider would be REALLY "ANTI-HETEROSEXUAL"

    My ideas:

    Get a fiberglass bed cover. Kinda expensive $600+, get one that fits flush, I think they look really cool. 2nd, get some wind deflectors for your side windows, smoke color of course.

    After that I would tint windows. If you want new wheels I'd stick with your stock 16 inch and just get some that are wider so you can get some fatter tires on it.

    Then I'd do some billet stuff. Is that your truck in your avtar? If so it looks like the grill already has billet. Do more if possible, billet looks good. Also if that is your truck it looks very nice.

    Well...if you power and BOAT LOADS of it..

    you have the Windsor 351 in it..

    Take it out...stroke it to a 383...keep the stock injection system..the injectors are PLENTY BIG.

    Put on some GT40 heads designed for the 383 stroker..

    Dyno after that will show atleast 360hp!!!

    Mad
