    I'm really digging the setup on this truck and the overall direction. I see this kind of configuration on clean trucks will be a big part of the gmt400 market gain going forward like the k10/20 trucks had a few years back.

    Thanks man. Just trying to do something that's modern, but with it's feet in the 90s. Not a huge fan of the ultra-modern huge wheel/skinny tire look. Wanted something that could pass as period correct to the late 90's with some new style touches, and I'm trying to do as much OEM-plus stuff as I can within tasteful reason. I think the wheels fit that bill to a T. Not a huge fan of all the trendy color matched stuff either, when I was in high school in the late 90's, every truck was littered with chrome accents, and that's the direction the truck will go next. Want to keep it '90's cool'. Still have to finish putting on the Silverado side moldings, would love to find a nice Chevy tailgate band, definitely putting the stainless rocker trim on it, and I have a set of factory fender flares that will go on as well. Lots of work to do yet.

    The chrome accents should look pretty good on that color. If you are wanting more chrome, LMC sells the stainless steel door handles and tail gate handles that actually fit. The Chinese plastic chrome handles don't fit worth a damn.

    That we do. I also dislike the all chrome grilles that LMC sells. There's no contrast, no character to it.

    I agree, unless we're talking vintage that were that way originally.

    Not a fan of the door handles haha. Rocker kit below the molding only. There's a line that's not to be crossed when it comes to 'too much' haha.

    I was 100%, fully on board, committed and in love with this truck until you said you're putting chrome accents on it :bawl:
