What kind of logic motivated you to smoke your headlights and add HIDs? Also smoking taillights and brake lights is about the second dumbest mod to do. I really don't understand why you'd want to make it harder for people to see your brake and tail lights.

It's for looks of course, and it's not always dark enough to cause a safety concern. What may seem dumb to you may not seem dumb to another truck owner, and visa-versa ;) We all have our own tastes, influences, and different reasons for modifying our trucks. To each his own.

I'd go with some high performance exhaust and a tune to go with that intake... and maybe black out the front bowtie.

Im personally not a fan of chrome so I took black plastidip to all of my front bumper (grey bottom part, chrome middle, and black up) along with the chrome across the middle. Would make it look really good with your smoked lights. Here is mine after i blacked out the front. We have same body style.

I really dont know why people get on here and try to put someones truck down just doesnt make sense to me. IMO I like the smoke lights I think it sets the truck off great! You are running a little risk but its your truck do with what you please! Good lookin truck man! I would def get some black bow ties and exhaust for sure.

He asked "What do you think?". He asked for opinions, I like the truck but not the tinted lights. I think tinting brake and headlights are two of the most moronic mods people do. To tint your headlights" because my hids was blinding people" just adds to my anger. HIDs have their place, in a headlight properly designed and made for them. If you don't like negative opinions don't ask. I'm not here to blow smoke up anyone's ass, I'm going to say what I feel.

I respect your opinion and understand where your coming from but personally those are my favorite mods and didn't cost me anything because the guy gave all of the smoked lights when I bought the truck

I have HID's in my stock headlight assemblies and they are just fine... Don't think I'm blinding folks too badly lol. I think you should get you some black nerf bars, finish blacking out the chrome, and replace the factory audio system??
