    Slapping on a good coat of paint and washing it once in a while can do wonders. Shiny tires help too.

    shiny tires is a matter of personal taste. Myself I do not like the shiny wet look on tires or interior. A nice mat look works for me. I am making my rig a nice to look at trail rig. I will be practicing my painting technique and attempting to put ghost flames on my hood and fenders. My custom bumpers and sliders will be a trim color. I will be etching a grim reaper design into my rear window with my sandblaster and me and my wifes names into the door windows. dunno if you can use any of that but there it is.

    Run it down a tree or two or better yet a Big rock. Gives it that highly sought after "Mad Max" look. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    make sure you put decals on that are super tacky, or ones from performance parts that you dont actually have. I hear NOS is really popular.

    On a serious side, try waxing the truck and adding a set of chrome or aluminum rims, really pizzases it up.

    i dragged the side acorss the infamous "Rita Tree" and then ran right into Old Sluice, while trying to navigate Ken's Box at Dusy Ersim.

    I'm all about having my truck being as aesthetically pleasing as possible. i even do body repair with a 4lb. sledge and a rattle can. good rates, PM me for details.
