    It's not a 4x4 so don't get too exited. I basically use it to haul my beater Blazer around. I would like to make it look a little nicer though, right now the paint is some combination of faded dark and light brown and I want to paint it and maybe put some 33's on it just to make it look a little nicer. I can't seem to find any lift kits so I might throw a bodylift on it. It's ugly but it runs really nice and I only paid $800 for it so I don't mind spending maybe another $800 on fixing it up. I am planning on painting it myself.
    Any suggestions? What would you do?

    You could go for a cheap Maco paint job and a small BL to fit the 33's

    this is what i would do:

    make a list of all the things you don't like about the truck. things you want to change.

    go do the list.

    ============


    tires, paint
    ---------------
    just stuff on some 33s and trim. the front won't flex much so you won't have to take a lot of metal.

    paint it all one colour. i'm in a silver mood so do that. some seat covers and a cd player wouldn't hurt either.
