Aside from the outside bling it looks really clean and nice on the inside. Would be easy to convert back to a good looking truck.

No way. The people on this forum are too cheapfuck for something that cost anything over $25k. But they'll stab each other in the back for a rusty $15k truck that needs work.

Worst part about it is the camera "tilt" pics.... major pet peeve of mine.

Well, OK the worst part is the wheels. Good gawd.

What do you guys think of the grill? I've seen those for sale on the rovers north website. Looks clean outside of the dumb ass wheels.

I think it featured in the show " pimp my ride"

But remove the rims and steering wheel and it is not that bad.
