My lil make over

I'm just excited and wanted to share what will be changing with my truck in the next 2 weeks or so.First of all,i installed the black mesh upper and lower grill from grillcraft.I like the look of it and had to put on the badge as i find it just looked too plain without it.I also ordered new black aftermarket projector headlights to replace the chrome ones i have and sent them to Jay at Lightmodz to upgrade the projectors.He also removed the halos or painted them black as the look just wore off on me.But those are already on their way and should arrive this week.Also ordered smoked fogs to kind of match the black.I also ordered 24"kmc slides and tires to replace the stock ones and upgraded to premium series drilled and slotted rotors from r1 concepts along with new brake pads.I currently have an appointment for tuesday to get my front driver and passenger side windows tinted.Its illegal here, but i see so many vehicles with their front windows tinted that i'll take the chance and get them done.Also,i plan on gettin my roof rack painted from the grey it is,to black to match the rest of the truck and my front air dam silver to match.Last but not least,after waiting close to 2 months Gibson finally shipped my cat back exhaust.I ordered it through Jason Burtman but they gave him a hard time about it or a runaround.Saying everything was in stock minus the muffler and they just kept on holding it up saying it had to be made.So after nearly 2 months they finally shipped.But here's a pic of the grills and my headlights and i'll post the rest when i get everything on.
