    Looks good. You may find that you like your exhaust exiting behind the rear tire better depending how much your truck smokes. You may be washing your bedside and wheel often.

    Nice truck, but why do you have different wheels in your avatar?

    You may find your tuner on more then you think. My friend had an 02 psd with a 50hp chip and it gave him 1-1.5mpg better in all types of driving and that extra 50hp made it nicer to drive and would keep it in overdrive longer.

    Nice truck. Do have any pics of it at night with the lights on the toolbox? I have been thinking about getting a toolbox and lighting it up a little. Thanks.

    not a bad looking truck im getting my trucks windows tinted but im putting on 5% lol im not gonna plow with it but i do alot of driving on the high way and it sucks having the sun beating down on you and giving your arm a burn cause you cant really get it out of the way of the sun

    but ya no way would i tint a plow truck that dark if you have to plow at night you cant see ANYTHING i had 5% on my car and man i couldnt really see backing up i had to roll down the window and look out to make sure i didnt hit any thing

    Looks great. As for the tuner, I'd recommend calling Jody at DP http://www.dp-tuner.com/index.php

    I don't mean to rain on the parade, but I'd agree with the above post. My first plow truck had tinted windows. The first nighttime storm I was scraping it off with a razorblade because I couldn't see a damn thing. On a similar note, my friend had one of those "mural" things on his back window and ended up removing it. They are perforated so you can "focus" your eyes through them, but water droplets would sit in the holes and distort the heck out of his view.

    Like I said, it looks great, but I hope you don't regret the tint.

    You'll have your windows up when it's zero or below or snowing hard, especially if it's snowing sideways. Then windows down sucks, makes a mess out of the inside of your truck.
